Applications are invited from dynamic and motivated individuals to expand our current complement of 6 consultants.

The new appointee would have general luminal gastroenterology and endoscopy skills. Expertise in other sub-specialty interests would be encouraged (including but not limited to EUS, nutrition, hepatology).

An on-call endoscopy and referral service is provided to Redditch by the on call Gastroenterology consultant. ERCP, EUS, oesophageal and colonic metal stenting, complex therapeutic colonoscopy and bowel cancer screening are all performed.

Weekly multidisciplinary meetings are held to review all cases of GI and HPB cancer. There are also monthly MDT meetings for IBD and GI pathology meetings.

The service is currently supported by 2 IBD specialist nurses who manage the helpline for symptom management, drug side effects and complications. They also manage the video capsule endoscopy service and biologics service.

In addition to this we are in the process of recruiting a Liver CNS, and a business case is also being put forward to recruit a nutrition nurse to help support the service further.

The trust comprises of 3 inter-linked hospitals including Worcestershire Royal Hospital, Alexandra Hospital, Redditch and Kidderminster Treatment Centre.

Successful appointees would be expected to work across site with in-patients at Worcestershire Royal Hospital. The trust serves a population of 600,000 and currently provides out-patient gastroenterology at three sites and an in-patient service at Worcestershire Royal Hospital.

There are a number of new developments under way to help improve our patient flow and give patients a better experience.

These include the construction of a new discharge lounge, the redevelopment of the Aconbury block at the Worcester site and the construction of a bridge to connect it to the main hospital building. These will significantly increase the capacity we have to care for acutely ill patients.
