Consultant in Urology - interest and experience in Upper Tract Laparoscopic Surgery
The Urology service at ELHT is progressive and forward thinking and these posts present an exciting opportunity to join a cohesive team of enthusiastic Urology professionals who are supported by high quality colleagues in the wider multi-disciplinary team.
Applications are invited for a Consultant post in our Urology Service at ELHT.
The appointment is for a Full time Consultant Urological Surgeon on 10 PAs working across our two base sites of RBTH and BGTH. It is intended that the successful candidate will have an interest and experience in upper tract laparoscopic surgery.
With this appointment there will be 9 full time Urology Consultants currently supporting a 1:9 on-call rota with middle grade cover. The department is actively looking to expand and will be advertising two further substantive posts in the near future.
There is subspecialisation in Oncology, Endourology and functional Urology. All consultants still undertake core Urology. Andrology services are also provided but are mainly run by a Clinical Nurse Specialist.
The department is an accredited cancer centre for the Lancashire and South Cumbria Cancer Network where the major pelvic cancer surgery is currently split between East Lancashire Hospitals Trust and one other provider. The trust has an NHS commissioned da Vinci robot which is used for radical prostatectomies, partial nephrectomies and cystectomies.
East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust is an integrated care organisation formed by the merger of hospital and community services in East Lancashire. We provide a broad range of acute and community services to the local population in addition to some specialist services to a wider population. We are a clinically led, managerially supported organisation.
