An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Consultant Rheumatologist based at Whipps Cross University Hospital Site. We are looking to recruit a replacement for either a Rheumatology Consultant (10 PA) OR a Rheumatology Consultant with GIM (8 PA rheum and 2 PA medicine)
This is an exciting opportunity for the successful applicant to support and develop the high quality rheumatology service and be responsible for providing general in-patient and outpatient adult rheumatology care, without any out-of-hour’s on-call commitment. The post also offers the prospect to develop a sub-specialty interest in Osteoporosis joining a colleague with a long-established clinic in this area.
We welcome candidates who are interested in undertaking a pure rheumatology post as well as those interested in GIM. The later would involve a 1 in 10 cover of acute medicine and the medical on call rota (currently 1 in 27 weekdays and 1 in 20 weekends).
Rheumatology sits within the ECAM (Emergency Care and Acute Medicine) directorate. Barts Health Rheumatology Service has been established for over 50 years and during that time has become recognised as a leading national and international rheumatology centre of excellence. Many members of the teams are leading UK experts in their fields and all provide high quality specialist care.
We work closely with academics and conduct world class research participating in laboratory research through to the final testing phases of clinical trials that directly benefit patients.
Our mission is to bring excellence to life through the use of pioneering technology, evidence-based medicine and first class clinical care.
