Consultant Gastroenterologist (Full time)
We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic highly motivated colleague to augment and compliment the gastroenterology service at The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust (RWT). You will join six consultant colleagues and will continue to develop the progressive Gastroenterology service. The current consultant body substantially contributes to national GI and bowel cancer screening policies, endoscopic accreditation and training. RWT is the regional endoscopy training centre and was the fi rst centre in the UK to deliver bowel cancer screening and is a pilot site for fl exible sigmoidoscopy screening. There are active ongoing developments in liver disease, regional interventional endoscopy (EMR/HALO), IBD, and clinical trials supported by basic science academic sessions at the University of Birmingham.
Recent service reconfi guration has allowed gastroenterology to provide a 24/7 GI service to the trust and this post will not have a commitment to acute GIM.
Specialist interests/expertise will be encouraged in line with departmental requirements.
RWT is committed to delivering top quality care and an excellent patient experience. The Trust is the largest teaching hospital in the Black Country providing teaching and training to around 130 medical students on rotation from the University of Birmingham Medical School. It also provides training for nurses; midwives and allied health professionals though well established links with the University of Wolverhampton. One of the largest acute providers in the West Midlands the Trust has an operating budget of £374 million, 800 beds including 27 intensive care beds and employs 6500 staff. In 2011/12 the Trust treated more than 700,000 patients at hospital and community sites across the West Midlands. During the coming months the Trust will be working towards becoming a Foundation Trust.
