Consultant in Infectious Diseases
The Infectious Disease service in Bristol is seeking Consultants in Infectious Disease. These are replacement posts. Applicants must be accredited in Infectious Disease with an additional specialty (e.g., General Internal Medicine, Microbiology).
This is an exciting opportunity to join a growing department in a vibrant city, based at the new - state of the art - Southmead Hospital. It is the regional centre for major trauma, neurosciences, plastics and burns, orthopaedics and renal services. Microbiology services are delivered by Severn Infection Sciences, a collaboration between the trust and UKHSA. It provides diagnostics services for North Bristol, University Hospitals Bristol and Weston Foundation Trust and the Royal United Hospital Trust, Bath. The laboratory is based at Southmead in recently completed building providing one of the largest, most automated laboratory services in the UK.
Successful applicants will join a team of 5 Consultants working within the Department of Infectious Disease (currently 3.1 WTE) working closely with an additional 5 Microbiology Consultants based in Infection Sciences. We deliver care for 22 patients on our dedicated ward, and consults to specialities across North Bristol NHS Trust. We have 6 lobbied isolation rooms and are the regional centre for the inpatient management of infections such as multi-drug resistant TB. We run outpatient services for all aspects of infection including TB, and travel. The successful applicant will participate in a rota covering the ward, clinics and consults with the possibility of rotational opportunities to the microbiology service for those with suitable experience. There may be a commitment to acute medical on call for suitably qualified individuals until the anticipated launch of a 7-day ward ID service.
We are seeking individuals who will bring enthusiasm, teamwork, flexibility and innovation to a growing, rapidly evolving department. Post-holders would be required to work in close partnership with our allied departments (Infection Sciences, HIV Medicine) and those with academic and educational interests are particularly welcome. There are strong links with the University of Bristol and the University of the West of England.
