Applications are invited for a Consultant General Surgeon with an interest in Gastrointestinal Tract (GI) Surgery to join a team of 10 General Surgery Consultants who sub-specialise in upper and lower GI surgery based at Leighton Hospital, Crewe. This is a substantive post to increase capacity for general surgical work with an on-call commitment of 1:8, outpatient and inpatient commitments including endoscopy sessions.

The department is well supported by 6 Higher Trainees (ST3+), 2 LAS ST3+ doctors, 2 CSTs, 2 GP Trainee, 2 LAS ST1/2 doctors, 1 Educational Fellow and 6 F1’s. All Consultants are based at Leighton Hospital with additional outlying clinics and endoscopy sessions being undertaken at the Victoria Infirmary, Northwich.

The Trust has invested significantly in recent years in clinical expansion and hospital mortality is ‘as expected’ across the range of indicators.

The Trust has a formal clinical partnership with its nearby University Hospital, benefits from local universities in Crewe (Manchester Metropolitan University)and in Chester. In addition, strong links to UHNM both clinically and academically exist.

Applicants must have full registration with the GMC including a Licence to Practise, and be on the Specialist Register (or be within six months of obtaining their Certificate of Completion of Training).
