An exciting opportunity has become available to join our growing Gastroenterology department at Southport and Ormskirk NHS hospital trust. Our hard-working and forward-thinking team are keen to develop the service and would welcome similar minded candidates to join our department.
Applicants will require Basic Medical Qualification M.R.C.P. or equivalent, to be on the specialist register with a CCT in General Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology or within 6 months of achieving this.
We work in a rotation pattern with time both on and off the ward. The Gastroenterology ward (11 B) is a 23bed unit with an experienced team. Whilst on-ward, we run an advice and guidance type service for referrals in a hot-week style model, whilst also covering In-patient Endoscopy.
Whilst Off-ward, Outpatient Clinics and Endoscopy services occur on both sites, with the timetable planned to avoid as much travel between sites as possible.
Most Endoscopy happens at the Ormskirk site with within the spacious and recently updated Treatment Centre, but high risk or complex procedures will be performed on the Southport site.
We will shortly commence work on a new Endoscopy suite at the Southport site.
We have non-medical Endoscopists that work over both sites, as part of an extended Gastroenterology team including Specialist Nurses in Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Upper GI Cancer and Alcohol.
