Looking for a new perspective on your healthcare career?

Medicine Care Group

We are looking for an enthusiastic, motivated colleague to join our high
performing and productive Gastroenterology Service here on the Isle of
Wight. Our organisation is unique, functioning as an integrated Trust
comprising of Acute, Ambulance, Community and Mental Health
Services. We provide comprehensive Gastroenterology and Hepatology
Services, and have a modern JAG accredited Endoscopy Unit.

Following the recent retirement of two consultants, the provision of services will be redesigned such that patients will be provided with excellent general medical and specialist gastroenterological care with the assurance that there is continued excellent specialist secondary and tertiary provision by Solent Acute Alliance partner Trusts when required.

The clinical strategy is currently under development and includes
gastroenterology within the provision of medical services. However, the
majority of gastroenterological services will be provided locally by the
Island based team. The positions will be suitable for candidates who
want to work differently but are passionate about the delivery of
gastroenterological services for the population of 140,000 that live on
the Isle of Wight.

You’ll provide outpatient, inpatient and endoscopic Gastroenterology,
along with a commitment to the 1:11 acute medical on-call rota. The
post will integrate with the current specialties offered by the existing
Gastroenterology team, which include: inflammatory bowel disease,
bowel screening and ERCP; we are most keen to develop hepatology
and inflammatory bowel disease services.

The successful candidate will also be expected to take part in business
planning of Gastroenterology Services in collaboration with the other
two consultants in the Service and the Care Group’s operational
management team.

A Welcome Incentive of up to £20,000 is available for the right candidate.

For an informal discussion please contact Dr Christopher Sheen,
Consultant Gastroenterologist via 01983 882099 or christopher.
