Locum Consultant Physician in Endocrinology - 10PAs

259-MED293SBH

The Department of Endocrinology at St Bartholomew's Hospital, part of Barts Health NHS Trust, are currently welcoming applications for a full-time (10PAs) locum consultant post. This appointment will initially be for a fixed term period of six months and the successful candidate will join the existing endocrinology team in providing high quality care to endocrine and general medicine patients on the St Bartholomew's hospital site. This is a new post, the need for which arises from a combination of year-on-year growth in referral practice, additional complex work as a result of two international centre of excellence awards and a backlog of case that has arisen from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Barts Health NHS Trust provides a large range of clinical services to people in east London and beyond. We operate from four major hospital sites (The Royal London, St Bartholomew's, Whipps Cross and Newham) and a number of community locations, including Mile End Hospital. Around 2.5 million people living in east London look to our services to provide them with the healthcare they need. The Trust is the second largest provider of cancer care in London and has an international reputation for providing excellent cancer care. Based at St Bartholomew's Hospital in the City of London, The Barts Cancer Centre is a major tertiary referral centre for all forms of malignant disease in adults.

The Department of Endocrinology at St Bartholomew's provides secondary, tertiary and quaternary endocrine services to East London, The City, Inner and Outer NE London and many centres around and beyond the UK. The department has developed a high international reputation for its research, teaching and clinical activities and recently received two separate international centre of excellence awards. It employs a multidisciplinary approach, incorporating adult and paediatric clinical endocrinology, and basic science in biochemistry and molecular biology to facilitate the investigation and treatment of endocrine disorders throughout lifespan. The work of the department embraces all areas of clinical and molecular endocrinology, and is underpinned by internationally renowned expertise in clinical endocrinology and an extensive tertiary referral base.

The successful candidate will join the endocrinology team in providing inpatient and outpatient care to endocrine and general medicine patients on the St Bartholomew's Hospital site. The successful candidates will also be expected to participate in professional medical responsibilities, training junior medical staff and contributing to the clinical research portfolio.
