King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust part of King's Health Partners Academic Health Sciences Centre (AHSC), is one of the UK’s largest and busiest teaching hospitals with a turnover of nearly £1 billion, 1.5 million patient contacts a year and more than 12,600 staff based across 5 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.

The Liver Intensive Care Unit at King’s College Hospital is offering an exciting opportunity to appoint  a number of Senior Clinical  Fellows commencing  February 2021 & August 2021.

Applications are invited from trainees with an interest in Intensive Care Medicine, Anaesthesia or Hepatology. These posts are generally suited to applicants who have already completed core training and who have embarked on specialty training. It is not unusual for us to have a number of post-CCT fellows on the rota. Intensive care experience and advanced airway skills are desirable but not essential (as in the case of hepatology trainees). Membership/fellowship of the relevant Royal College or equivalent for overseas applicants is preferred. Posts are available for 6 months up to 2 years dependent on requirements.

The Liver Intensive Care is a unique facility with a worldwide reputation for the care of critically ill patients with liver disease. Staffed by a specialist team of intensive care doctors, it has been setting international standards for patient care for more than two decades and is a leading centre for the development and use of advanced and innovative therapies.

We have a special interest in the management of acute liver failure, complications of portal hypertension and chronic liver disease and liver transplantation. We also admit patients from other disciplines, and have a pedigree in the management of complex haematology, cardiology and cardiothoracic surgical patients requiring circulatory support (including ECMO) and general medical and surgical patients.

Within both the Institute of Liver Studies and the Trust (organised by the Department of Postgraduate Medical and Dental Education) there is a comprehensive teaching programme with protected teaching time and access to the excellent medical school facilities.

We also have opportunities in General Critical unit if suitable.

This post includes on call duties.
