We are recruiting to a new consultant post  to improve medical support to the hospital and improve end of life care at Whipps Cross  University Hospital.  There has been significant investment in the Specialist Palliative Care Service at Barts Health and this post joins a group of 7 consultants.  We are looking for a doctor who wants to be part of shaping the service to meet the needs of our diverse community in east London.

Barts Health covers five sites, St Bartholomew’s Hospital (SBH), The Royal London Hospital (RLH), Mile End Hospital (MEH), Whipps Cross University Hospital (WXH) and Newham University Hospital (NUH).
