The Gastroenterology Team are looking to appoint a colleague who is committed to delivering high-quality services across the breadth of gastroenterology and hepatology.

This is a full-time post arisen due to a colleague relocating and to respond to increasing local demand for endoscopy and outpatient activity. An interest in liver disease would also be advantageous, but any sub-speciality interest (including advanced or interventional endoscopy) will be considered. Appointing the right colleague, who will enhance and work within the team, is our primary aim.

The department of gastroenterology at Musgrove Park Hospital (Taunton and Somerset Hospital) runs a comprehensive gastroenterology & hepatology service to West Somerset (350,000 population) with over 2,000 new outpatient referrals to the department and almost 11,000 endoscopy procedures in the last. There are currently nine consultant gastroenterologists providing the full range of GI services. We are the regional hub for the NHS bowel cancer screening programme and have expanded to bowel scope screening.
