Consultant in Obstetrics & Gynaecology including Minimal Access Surgery, Urogynaecology and Endometriosis  

Applications are invited for a full-time Gynaecology Consultant which is to replace a long term locum post. You will be responsible for the clinical care of Gynaecology patients, working independently in elective and emergency situations but with the knowledge that you can rely on a very supportive team of consultant colleagues within the Directorate. 

This is an exciting time to join our unit and our diverse but cohesive consultant team. Previous reconfiguration of services has brought all acute Obstetrics and Gynaecology services to the Worcestershire Royal Hospital (WRH) Site in Worcester. The annual number of births is c.5000. All consultants work in countywide roles with some clinical sessions at WRH and other sessions at other hospital sites including Kidderminster Treatment Centre (KTC) and the Alexandra Hospital, Redditch (AHR) as well as local community sites (Evesham, Malvern, Tenbury Wells and Bromsgrove).

The successful applicant will participate in Gynaecology on call, with resident junior and middle grade staff. We have separate Obstetrics and Gynaecology Consultant rotas which involves a 1:10 commitment. This is currently delivered as a Gynaecology hot week from 1pm on Friday to 1pm the following Friday.

The successful applicant should have good clinical skills in general Gynaecology and should have ATSM or equivalent in Urogynaecology, Benign abdominal surgery and advance laparoscopic surgery. Sub-speciality training in Urogynaecology or Reproductive medicine is also required. 
The successful candidate must have CCT accreditation or equivalent in Obstetrics & Gynaecology or be within 6 months of obtaining CCT or equivalent on the date of the AAC.

Worcestershire is a largely rural county with excellent transport links to the South West, Midlands and South East. Worcester is a historical city with a world famous cathedral. It is flanked by the River Severn and is home to Worcestershire County Cricket ground and Elgar’s Birthplace museum. The Malvern Hills, an area of outstanding natural beauty, are on the doorstep. There are excellent local schools, both private and state. While continuing to train medical students from the University of Birmingham, the Trust has very close links with Worcester University which from 2023 has started admitting medical students to the Three Counties Medical School.

The new terms and conditions for consultants (England) 2003 apply to this post.
