This post is an exciting opportunity to join a progressive Gastroenterology Department at Hull University Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust. You will join the existing 11 Consultant Gastroenterologists providing high quality Gastroenterology and Hepatology care to a population of over 600,000 in Hull and East Yorkshire, and tertiary care services to a wider catchment area of 1.2 million.

The department has established expertise in IBD, Hepatology and Therapeutic Endoscopy. There are 2 busy endoscopy units (8 rooms), which are JAG and Bowel Cancer Screening accredited. Endoscopic training is a strong focus of the department, which is also home to the renowned East Yorkshire School of Endoscopy. The Departments of Gastroenterology, Upper GI Surgery and Colorectal Surgery share the same Health Group and form an integrated Digestive Diseases Service.

The Trust has recently received a generous donation for the development of a purpose built 12-room endoscopy centre at Castle Hill Hospital, which will house all endoscopy service and training activity, as well as research facilities.  The unit is expected to be operational in mid-late 2021.
