- Full Time
King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust part of King's Health Partners Academic Health Sciences Centre (AHSC), is one of the UK’s largest and busiest teaching hospitals with a turnover of nearly £1 billion, 1.5 million patient contacts a year and more than 12,600 staff based across 5 main sites in South East London and Kent.
The Trust provides a full range of local hospital services across its different sites, and specialist services from King’s College Hospital (KCH) site in Camberwell and the Princess Royal University Hospital (PRUH) site in Bromley, Orpington Hospital, and some services at Beckenham Beacon and Queen Mary’s Sidcup.
The Trust is recognised internationally for its work in liver disease and transplantation, neurosciences, cardiac, haemato-oncology, fetal medicine, stroke, major trauma, and Emergency Department.
An exciting opportunity has arisen within the Liver and Gastroenterology Department based at King’s College Hospital for a dynamic and forward thinking individual to join our experienced team. This new post will be split between gastroenterology and neuroendocrine tumours. Gastroenterology has close links with the Institute of liver studies, Hepatobiliary surgery and colorectal surgery. There are close links with Radiology, Histopathology and upper GI surgery. The Neuroendocrine Tumour services works closely with Hepatobiliary surgery, radiology, nuclear medicine, cardiothoracic surgery, biochemistry and respiratory services. The Gastroenterology Department is expanding with an emphasis on creating subspecialist areas of expertise and promoting regional and national key opinion leaders as well as inter-disciplinary support for specialist teams within the Trust. A particular emphasis is our work with the Institute of Liver Studies. The King’s College Hospital (KCH) NET service is one of the leading centres in Europe for the management of patient with NETs. In 2012 King’s Health Partners in affiliation with Kent Oncology and Hampshire Hospitals was awarded the Centre of Excellence status by the European NET Society. Applicants do not require prior extensive training or experience in neuroendocrine tumours as this will be incorporated in to the post.
Closing date: 4th August 2020
Interviews: 19th August 2020.
