Applications are invited to apply for a Consultant in Urology at Milton Keynes University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. This post is for a general urologist with scope for developing a sub-specialty interest to suit the department.

This post is to fill a post following retirement of a colleague offering 10 programmed activities with an on-call supplement of 3%. Additional programmed activities may be available, but these are subject to annual discussion and agreement and do not form part of the underlying contractual agreement.

Applicants are required to be on the Specialist Register for Urology, have CCT in Urology or be within six months of obtaining it by the interview date. Full Registration with the GMC is essential.

The successful applicant will be expected to participate in teaching both under and postgraduate students associated with the University of Buckingham and will also be expected to support colleagues doing these activities as part of his or her arranged job plan.

Milton Keynes University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, in partnership with the University of Buckingham, is a University Teaching Hospital. This allows us to attract, train and retain the best doctors.

The hospital is the premier teaching hospital for the newly created University of Buckingham Medical School. The first students will graduate in 2019 and currently all years of medical students are being taught at the hospital. There are significant opportunities in the field of medical education both in the delivery and organisation of teaching. A teaching and research background would be highly advantageous when applying for this position.

The Trust has recently started offering robotically-assisted surgery for major colorectal surgery and we expect to expand this service in the near future to other specialties including urology.

We believe the continued growth of the hospital will allow us to expand and improve our services to offer the very best care to the people of Milton Keynes, and beyond.

Located just 50 miles north of London, Milton Keynes has excellent access to the capital whilst being centrally located for Oxford and Cambridge and having ease of access to the north.
