Job Details

This a new full time Consultant post for a consultant rheumatologist to join the 3 existing full time Consultant Rheumatologists Dr James Taylor, Dr Mudita Tripathi, Dr Pradip Nandi and 1 part time consultant Dr Rachel Jeffery, based at Northampton General Hospital. It is a full time (10 PA) post and together with your colleagues, you will provide rheumatological services to the catchment population of Northampton General Hospital. A special interest that would complement existing services would be of significant value.

The trust runs a routine annual job plan review process or will accommodate requests for job plan reviews when necessary if there is a significant alteration in work practice between regular routine reviews.

It is essential that the post-holder should hold the MRCP (UK) or an equivalent qualification and be on the GMC specialist register or will obtain a relevant CCT/CESR(CP) within 6 months of interview.

Interview date - 5th July 2024

Main duties of the job

The successful applicant will join the existing consultant team and our team of specialist nurses in delivering outpatient rheumatology care. We are a training department with an ST3 (from the East Midlands Deanery), an IMT doctor (on the Leicester medical rotation) and medical students from Leicester Medical School. We participate in Leicester and Oxford regional training meetings.

This post has approval from the Royal College of Physicians for 10PAs in the first instance. The timetable will include 4-5 outpatient clinics per week, support for the nurse led helpline, cover for the inpatient advice service during working hours and admitting rights if required for rheumatology patients. These are generally managed with shared medical care from the ward based medical teams.

We have a full complement of biologic and chemotherapeutic services, administered via our medical day unit with dedicated nurses for infusions. We also offer the opportunity of involvement in clinical trials with an established research and development unit with an increasing number of rheumatology portfolio studies.

About us

NGH is one of the largest employers in the area and all of our divisions are committed to doing things better, with more efficiency as we update, modernise, and advance. We have also entered into a Group Model with neighbouring Kettering General Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

Being a large DGH with a proud history, we are big enough to get interesting cases, but small enough to care, coach and develop. With over 200 consultants, a similar number of trainees and approximately 60medical undergraduates throughout the year, NGH provides comprehensive care and extensive training opportunities.

With this in mind, we have built a state of the art emergency assessment unit (Nye Bevan building) and are developing new ways of working to streamline in-patient care and optimize working with our partners.

NGH also has a large library, gym with swimming pool, and a brand new entrance with Marks and Spencer, Subway and Costa on site.
