If you’ve ever dreamt of living in a place which brings together the convenience of living in a city with the lifestyle associated with a home in a rural idyll, Herefordshire is the place for you.

Wye Valley NHS Trust’s Department of Haematology is seeking to recruit a further 2 Consultant Haematologists to join the current 3 Consultant Haematologists and consolidate a sustainable consultant delivered service to the population of Herefordshire and East Powys. The department offers first class care services within high quality dedicated facilities delivered by a friendly team who provide a comprehensive range of services up to Level 2a.

Candidates with wide general training in Haematology are the priority and any special skills to support or complement the existing consultants would be of great interest to the department. The department works closely with colleagues at Worcester Acute Trust (where MDT, level 2b and 3 services are housed) and colleagues at our main tertiary centre, the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham.

There is flexibility within the department to accommodate the skills of the successful candidates. Unique to these posts is the opportunity for development of special interests with 2PA’s per week entirely dedicated to this with the option to work elsewhere in the region in an area of the applicant’s choosing. Candidates wishing to work up to and including 10 PA contracts are actively encouraged to apply.

The City of Hereford and surrounding market towns offer a wide variety of lifestyles blending the traditional with the modern. This is a county of contrasts where walkers enjoy breath-taking views, adrenalin seekers rave about our rock faces and river rapids, and connoisseurs of fine food enthuse about the quality of our locally grown produce. Cycling, canoeing, climbing and kayaking sit neatly alongside theatres, art galleries, museums, festivals and more. There’s something for everyone. House prices compare favorably with other areas of the country. There is excellent state education at both primary and secondary school level, including a Sixth Form College voted ‘Sixth Form College of the Year’ by the Times Educational Supplement in 2016.
