We are looking for a substantive Consultant Cardiologist to join the Division of Access and Medicine at the Royal Surrey NHS Foundation Trust.

This is a new Consultant Cardiologist post. We require a consultant colleague with an interest in echocardiography/imaging to lead our echocardiography department. RSCH NHS trust is a tertiary/quaternary level centre for advanced oncology services. Given the size of this service (radiotherapy/chemotherapy and advanced cancer surgery) we require a colleague to support/develop cardio-oncology services across Surrey. In addition there is a need to support our growing dedicated heart failure service. We have an established infrastructure including cardiac ultrafiltration for heart failure, complex pacing (ICD/CRT/Subcutaneous ICD implantation), interventional electrophysiology and we have set up a dedicated heart failure unit (2nd in the country) with community integration. Additionally, there is onsite cardiac MRI/cardiac CT and angiography. Our strategic direction is to complement existing cardiology services and build in cardiology support for cancer patients (pre/during and post cancer therapy).There is also a requirement to expand adult general cardiology provision within the trust

The successful candidates will have CCT or equivalent and be on the Specialist Register for Cardiology when they take up the post (applications are welcome from those within six months of their CCT date).

The Royal Surrey County Hospital is a large modern hospital, situated on a green field site on the outskirts of Guildford, in a very attractive part of the country. Guildford is an old market town situated in a strategic position in Surrey, with excellent road and rail links to London, Heathrow and Gatwick airports, to the South Coast and to the West of England. Guildford offers excellent shopping, entertainment and sports facilities. There is a wide choice of state and independent schools locally; all of which have good reputations.
