We are looking for an enthusiastic Substantive Consultant Rheumatologist to join the United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust.

The department will comprise 5 consultants (including this post), 3 specialist nurses and a specialist registrar. The post will be based at Lincoln County Hospital with clinical commitments at Pilgrim Hospital, Boston. Whilst developing a special interest is not a requirement of the post, this will be encouraged should the successful applicant request this. 

Any applicant who is unable for personal reasons to work full time will be eligible to be considered for the post. If such a person is appointed, modification of the content will be discussed on a personal basis with the Trust in consultation with consultant colleagues. 

GENERAL INFORMATION 

Lincolnshire is scenically and geographically varied. It includes the Lincoln escarpment on which the beautiful medieval Cathedral stands, the North Lincolnshire Wolds, a designated area of outstanding natural beauty, the extensive beaches of the coastal strip, and the vast farmlands in the south of the county. 

Lincoln is a developing city with a recently established and successful University with which the Trust has developed strong research and teaching links. The city is known for the historic Cathedral and Lincoln Castle as well as the many social and leisure facilities available within this expanding city. 

Grantham is an historic market town with many attractions, including plentiful shops, restaurants and leisure facilities and is only just over an hour from London by train. 

South Lincolnshire has retained the grammar school system, and has a reputation for providing excellent state school education. In addition, the cost of housing compares very favourably with many areas of the country. 

Boston is an attractive market town in South Lincolnshire with a growing population. It has a flourishing port on the River Witham dating back to the thirteenth century. Most of the town’s industry is linked to agriculture or the port.
