The positions is to provide 1.0 whole time equivalent consultant (10 PA) with the potential to consider job share or part time working. In addition to general clinical work, the post-holder will have dedicated research time at least during the first 12 months of employment, will contribute to the clinical governance and will act as clinical and educational supervisors to Occupational Medicine trainees. 

Applications are invited from suitably qualified occupational physicians to provide clinical services across a wide range of clients comprising NHS, higher education and other sectors. 

Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust (GSTT) is one of the largest hospital Trusts in Britain and in Europe, having formed the Academic Health Sciences Centre in 2009, following  amalgamation with King’s College Hospital, the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, King’s College London, and the Institute of Psychiatry. 

OHSS have been provided from both the Guy’s and St Thomas’ sites for nearly 40 years and more recently from Royal Brampton and Harefield sites as well.  The present OH Service is one of the largest and most advanced in Britain, and the first NHS service to be SEQOHS- accredited.  We provide services to the Trust, to healthcare students of King’s College London and to a number of other NHS and non-NHS institutions.  We are committed to training nurses and doctors; there are presently five specialty registrars, and two nurses training in Occupational Health.

This is a unique opportunity to become involved in OH research as the post holder will have 2 dedicated PAs (equivalent to one day) for research during the first 12 months of their employment.  This will be supported by the Research team led by Professor Ira Madan. Subject to developing a successful research portfolio, an extension to the research PAs beyond the first 12 months will be considered.

As an organisation, we are committed to developing our services in ways that best suit the needs of our patients.  This includes asking certain groups of staff to work more flexibly so that we can offer services to patients in the evenings and at weekends.  We regard this flexibility as essential if we are to continue to provide first class patient care in the future.  As a result, any offer of employment to a consultant post will be subject to you agreeing to work a new more flexible pattern of working in the future if required and in accordance with the provisions of the new Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust consultant contract.
