4x sub-specialist positions in Haemato- Oncology and in General Haematology
London North West Healthcare NHS Trust provides specialist care for one of the largest catchment populations in London. Since our creation in 2014, we have become one of country’s largest integrated healthcare trusts. Comprising Northwick Park, Ealing, Central Middlesex and St Mark’s Hospitals, our team of 9,000 clinical and support staff serve a diverse population of approximately one million people across Brent, Ealing and Harrow.
As part of the NWL sustainability and transformation programme transformation of care delivery is central to our Clinical Strategy. With such a large catchment population we diagnose and care for one of the highest volumes of cancer patients within London. We are working closely with our two neighbouring cancer centres and commissioners to further develop local skills and expertise to meet and respond to the growing demand for oncologic services, in order to deliver more care closer to home.
Applications are invited for 4 newly created substantive sub-specialist positions in Haemato-Oncology and in General Haematology. We are looking for talented and energetic colleagues who want to become part of a dynamic team, deliver the highest quality care and are keen to develop their own skills in quality improvement and clinical leadership. Teaching and training is central to the consultant role in the busy academic training department.
This is an exciting opportunity to join an established and vibrant department in the further expansion and development of clinical and diagnostic Haematology within the North West London sector. Although all posts are based at NPH, Consultants are expected to work at all Trust sites delivering outpatient care and to liaise with colleagues regarding referrals and laboratory queries.
The Department has strong research programmes in the fields of Malignant Haematology (NPH) and Haemoglobinopathy (CMH). The Haemato- Oncology Unit is an NIHR-badged and supported Clinical Trials Unit (awarded competitively in 2012) and is therefore a preferred Unit for conducting clinical trials with a proven track-record and a rapidly increasing research portfolio of national and international multi centre trials. There are excellent opportunities to develop clinical services, cultivate research ideas and to enhance teaching programs (at both post-graduate and undergraduate levels, as a major centre for training students and trainees from Imperial College London)
The successful candidates will demonstrate relevant clinical competence and be able to work in harmony as part of a large team, with good organisational and communication skills. Clinical research and teaching experience is highly encouraged. For Haemato-Oncology, appointees will attend on the Level 3 inpatient unit and undertake on-calls (~1:8; second on-call), new and follow- up Haem-Onc outpatient clinics, as well as Malignant Diagnostics work, contributing to the Diagnostics Pathway within the MDT set-up. The General Haematology posts will support the Specialist Haemoglobinopathy Team and
cover inpatient attending and on-call (~1:5; second on-call) on the Red Cell
& General Haematology service, General Haematology outpatient clinics,
as well as GP liaison and anticoagulation services. Subspecialist interests are encouraged. All consultants contribute to the day to day management and development of the service with good opportunities to develop research, quality improvement and clinical safety expertise and interests.
