The post is to support the Congenital Hyperinsulinism (CHI) team, which manages a highly acclaimed service funded by NHS England.

The new consultant will join an existing team of 7 Endocrinology consultants leading multi-disciplinary teams in different areas within the department. Expertise in the management of CHI is essential, as well as wider experience of managing complex general endocrine disorders.

There is a 1 in 6 attending on–call commitment for this post, and the post-holder will be expected to cover a week at a time. There will be a commitment to develop and be active in research projects.

Based in central London, GOSH offers flexible working, help with childcare and travel, excellent training and development opportunities and assistance with finding somewhere to live.
