King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is one of the UK’s largest and busiest teaching hospitals with over 1.5 million patient contacts a year and more than 13,000 staff based across five 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.

King’s is a key partner in one of London's foremost Academic Health Science Centres, King's Health Partners (KHP). KHP is one of only six Department of Health-designated AHSCs in England. It brings together a world-leading research-led university – King’s College London – and three successful NHS Foundation Trusts: King’s College Hospital, Guy’s and St Thomas’, and South London and Maudsley.

This is an exciting opportunity to be a part of our dedicated workforce and join one of the largest and most successful Foundation Trusts in the UK with an international reputation for innovation and the desire to make a difference.

An opportunity has arisen for two dynamic individuals to join King’s as Consultant Physicians with an interest in Gastroenterology.

These two new posts (one substantive, one fixed-term 12 months) are primarily to provide support to the Modernising Medicine transformation project.

The post-holder will provide weekday ward cover to one Medical ward and participate in the on-call rota for general internal medicine at King’s (not including overnight).

When not participating in these duties there will be an opportunity to provide and/or develop a specialist interest in Gastroenterology. Participation in the academic and educational life of the Department will be actively encouraged. Please note there is no on-call commitment to Gastroenterology or GI bleeding in these posts and overnight on-calls are not required. When applying please ensure you note the correct vacancy number for your substantive or fixed-term post.

You must be fully registered with the GMC and hold a Licence to Practice and be on the Specialist Register, or within six months of attaining your CCT or equivalent to be eligible for interview.

The postholder will have regular contact with vulnerable adults and/or children (0-18 years), therefore this post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975, and as such, it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service to check for any previous criminal convictions.
