Post/peri CCT applications are welcome for this exciting substantive consultant post in Infectious Diseases (75%) and Acute Medicine (25%) at Northwick Park and Ealing Hospitals.
London North West University Healthcare has one of the largest ID units in the UK, based at Northwick Park and Ealing Hospitals. Due to the size and diversity of the local population and proximity to Heathrow, the trust is the busiest TB unit in the UK, a regional referral centre for MDR TB and Imported infections, the North Outer West London site for HIV inpatient care and a treatment centre for viral hepatitis and has a highly successful ambulatory ID service including OPAT.
This post would join a consultant team with diverse interests and expertise sharing in both inpatient and outpatient care including a choice of speciality clinics (HIV, Tuberculosis, ambulatory ID, viral hepatitis, clinical research). The post holder would join the cross site on call ID rota with the Ealing team, contribute to our highly rated undergraduate and postgraduate training as an Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer for Imperial College and will have the opportunity to lead our clinical research programme.
This appointment will also add to the current team of five acute medicine consultants, nine acute/specialty consultants and twenty-nine specialty medical consultants who together are responsible for providing the acute medicine service at Northwick Park Hospital. Between us we provide two on-call teams each 24 hours, along with separate teams to cover Short Stay and our award-winning Emergency Ambulatory Care Unit.
While this post is funded for 10PAs we would also like to encourage applicants who are interested in job sharing or other flexible solutions.
