Applications are invited for the post of Consultant Immunologist (10 PA’s) to join the Clinical Immunology Department at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Trust. This is to provide, in conjunction with fellow Consultant Immunologists, professional direction for the specialist Clinical Immunology services to commence immediately.

The Immunology department is one of the largest clinical and diagnostic services in the UK, caring for a large cohort of patients with immunodeficiency including approximately 300 patients on long term immunoglobulin replacement. We host the Immunoglobulin assessment panel, for the Eastern Region of the UK. We had ca. 420 new out-patient referrals in the last year. The comprehensive diagnostic laboratory received ca. 750000 requests and provides a specialist functional service to diagnose inherited cellular immune defects.

A key responsibility of the appointee will be to assist in the supervision and management of patients with primary and secondary immunodeficiencies and other diseases of the immune system (excluding allergy), within the Trust and its networked service to meet with key outputs and performance indicators as set out by National Specialist Commissioning in Immunology. They will also actively contribute to the delivery of a clinically appropriate, cost-effective; high-quality diagnostic laboratory service in immunology will be negotiable.

The post holder will be expected to play an active role in service development, clinical audit, accreditation, research, clinical governance, and training. Excellent opportunities for research are available within the service and the CUH campus.

The successful candidate must have full GMC registration, and hold a CCT in Immunology (or equivalent) or have a CCT date, within 6 months of the date of interview.
