Applications are invited for a full time Consultant Breast Surgeon at Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. This is a replacement post, and the successful candidate will join a team of 2 Consultants in Breast and Oncoplastic Surgery based at Leighton Hospital in Crewe. The post holder will be responsible for operating lists, out-patient clinics, and participation in the weekly Breast MDT. The Unit deals with approximately 300 new breast cancers a year, with about a third of these coming from the screening programme.

An additional interest in skin cancer surgery would be an advantage. There is no General Surgery On-Call commitment.

The Trust was rated as ‘Good’ by the CQC from its recent inspection, has a good reputation for research and benefits from some of the very latest clinical facilities; these include Critical Care, neonatal intensive care, a new suite of state-of-the-art theatres and a dedicated day case Treatment Centre. The Trust has invested significantly in recent years in clinical expansion and hospital mortality is ‘as expected’ across the range of indicators.

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).

The post is offered on a full time basis at 10 Programmed Activities. There will be the opportunity to modify the job plan after commencement in post.
