Job Details

Applications are invited for the new post of Consultant Gastroenterologist with an interest in Neuroendocrine Tumours at University Hospital of Wales and University Hospital Llandough.

This is an excellent opportunity to join a team committed to delivering high quality compassionate care for patients across South Wales.

Cardiff & Vale University UHB host a nationally commissioned tertiary cancer service for patients with Neuroendocrine Tumours (NETs) in South Wales. This is an innovative, patient-centred, tertiary service achieving awards including the UK Patient Experience Network award, British Society of Gastroenterology service development commendation and other national awards.  As one of the larger centres in the UK, receiving approximately 220 new patients a year, it is hoped that European NET Society Centre of Excellence accreditation will be achieved soon.

The majority of patients have Gastroenteropancreatic-NETs (GEP-NETs) involving elements of specific luminal gastroenterology, endoscopy and hepatobiliary medicine expertise. The service developed through clinical leadership working with endocrinology, surgery, oncology, radiology, nuclear medicine, palliative care and pathology teams, identifying patients’ goals through co-production. 2 Clinical Nurse Specialists provide nursing support and coordination for patients across South Wales. There is an active research programme with clinical trials and internationally recognised, innovative clinical research.

Applicants should either be on the Specialist Register or be a Specialist Registrar within six months of their expected date of receipt of a CCT / CESR(CP) at the time of interview.

We also serve a wider population across South and Mid Wales for a range of specialties. 

Our vision is to create a community where healthy life choice does not depend on who you are or where you live.

A Great Place to Live and Work

Cardiff really is a city of contrasts. A castle with 1900 years of history stands alongside a modern shopping centre and a spectacular Civic Centre surrounded by acres of parkland.

The Cardiff Bay development has created eight miles of waterfront with a range of new apartments, bars and restaurants.

For those seeking more culture there is easy access to the National Museum and Gallery Cardiff, the Museum of Welsh Life and the Wales Millennium Centre, home of the Welsh National Opera.

Situated to the west of Cardiff, the Vale of Glamorgan offers a mixture of gentle rolling hills, charming towns and villages, and a dramatic natural coastline which includes part of the Glamorgan Heritage Coast.

Surrounded by areas of outstanding natural beauty, with the Brecon Beacons National Park, Swansea Gower Peninsula and the picturesque Vale of Glamorgan all nearby, Cardiff really does have it all.

Housing is reasonably priced, and our schools offer a high standard of education and facilities.
