Consultant Colorectal Surgeon
The post would suit a trainee who has recently (or is about to) attained CCT and wishes to develop their subspecialist colorectal skills particularly with an interest in advanced endoscopy.
Applicants must be fully registered with the GMC, and on the GMC specialist register, or be within 6 months of attaining specialist registration at the time of interview.
The post-holder shall be expected to deliver emergency general surgery and elective coloproctology. The successful candidate/candidates will also be encouraged to develop their skills in one or more of the specialist techniques/services described above and this will be actively supported.
This is an exciting opportunity to join a service which is at the forefront of providing a modern colorectal and emergency surgery service. Nottingham Colorectal Service has one of the busiest emergency and colorectal cancer workloads in the UK. It is also a major tertiary referral center for the wider East Midlands. We have established services in advanced laparoscopic surgery, robotic surgery, intestinal failure, anal cancer, retroperitoneal sarcoma, faecal incontinence, TEO/TEMS, SILS, locally advanced and recurrent colorectal cancer and an active Academic Department (University of Nottingham).
The Job Plan is annualised. This means that the individual appointed will be expected to deliver 8.5 sessions of DCC per week. This will include delivering the emergency general and emergency colorectal surgery service on a rotational basis but will also include a combination of main-theatre sessions, out-patients, day case theatre and endoscopy. The timing of individual sessions may be variable and take place at both QMC and Nottingham City Hospital campuses, the Diagnostic Treatment Centre at QMC site.
The Unit will actively support the development of subspecialist interests in line with the vision for colorectal surgery at NUH and provision for this will be made via individualised training opportunities but we have a particular need for advanced endoscopy.
The following draft Job Plan is an example of the expected work pattern, based on 10 PAs.
