Aberdeen Royal Infirmary
Applications are invited for a replacement Consultant Otolaryngologist position based at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary and University of Aberdeen Medical Institutions. The successful applicant will join an established team of seven Consultants and will be expected to participate in the full range of the services offered by the department which covers Adult and Paediatric services to the Grampian, Orkney and Shetland regions, a population in excess of 500,000.
A sub-specialty interest in Head and Neck surgery is preferred. This will consist of a combination of benign and malignant head and neck conditions. The Head and Neck service is delivered through a MDT setting with the full support of the range of specialties including Maxillofacial Surgery, Oncology, Radiology, Pathology, Speech and Language Therapy, Restorative Dentistry, Specialist Cancer Nursing and Dietetics. NHS Grampian is home to three Da Vinci surgical robots and approval has been given for the development of a robotic Head and Neck service. The successful postholder will be supported to play a central role in the development of this service.
The Grampian region provides the perfect solution to all interests and lifestyles. Aberdeen has the most buoyant economy in the UK outside of London and offers all the attractions of any major city. Aberdeenshire boasts many picturesque towns and villages within easy commuting distance and provides access to an enormous range of outdoor pursuits, ranging from fishing to skiing. Excellent transport links ensure that Edinburgh and Glasgow are less than 2 hours by train and the ever expanding Aberdeen airport has multiple flights daily to London (1 hour) and many other destinations across the UK and Europe.
Full registration with a licence to practise with the GMC is required.
