Consultant Clinical Haematologist
Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust/Royal Brompton and Harefield
NHS Foundation Trust
(Full-Time Post - 10 Programme Activities)
This is an exciting opportunity for a haematologist with interests in haemostasis, transfusion, laboratory and clinical haematology to work within Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust. The post is a reconfiguration of a previous joint post between Royal Brompton and Harefield NHS Foundation Trust (RBHT) and Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust (ICHNT) with responsibilities divided equally between the two trusts. It is one of two posts created in 2015 to replace the previous single consultant at RBHT and develop links between the two trusts
The haematology workload at RBHT is predominantly consultative general haematology and has a large laboratory element. The largest single area is haemostasis and in keeping with this, the clinical commitment at Imperial will be to support the haemostasis service on the Charing Cross Hospital site, whilst integrating with the haemostasis service across all three Imperial sites.
The service at the RBHT is already very research active and CXH has opportunities to develop collaboration with the HASU, vascular surgery for venous disease, emergency medicine and the North West London pathology hub laboratory.
The haematology department comprises a large practice covering the whole range of blood diseases including malignancies and stem cell transplantation, haemoglobinopathies and haemostasis. In patient activity is centred on the Hammersmith site where there are 50 available inpatient beds over three wards, and a dedicated haematology centre housing a haemophilia centre, busy outpatient department, and a daycare and ambulatory care unit.
The Imperial College Academic Centre for Haematology is fully integrated with our NHS departments of clinical and laboratory haematology. Haematology and cellular therapy are central to the cancer theme of the Biomedical Research Centre, and our goals of clinical excellence and translational medicine are aligned with those of the Academic Health Science Centre. The Haematology Clinical Trials Unit oversees more than 50 studies in both malignant and non-malignant diseases. There are regular research meetings within the department and the post-holder will be encouraged to participate in and initiate clinical trials.
