Job Details

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Specialty Doctor post in the Urology Department at the Royal Lancaster Infirmary, working with a supportive and friendly team in the newly built Urology Unit.

The post includes on call, assisting in theatre and supporting clinicians in clinic. Day to day work will cover outpatient, elective & emergency aspects of the service.

This post is not a training post but the team will provide support with training for diagnostic procedures such as local anaesthetic prostate biopsies.

As we operate from three main hospitals there is an expectation of cross bay travel so a driving license and a car is essential.

Main duties of the job

We are looking for an enthusiastic individual to join our team.

The post, including on call commitment, would cover clinical duties across our sites.

The post holder will be expected to support the Urology services offered by the Trust and provide the highest quality of care to the local population.

The post holder will be supported by our Consultants and our urology specialist nurse practitioners with ward support provided by the Matron's.

The post holder will be supported to take part in medical audits and in continuing medical education, (including self-development and maintaining accreditation).

There is a requirement for regular appraisal to be undertaken by the lead responsible for these services.

About us

We operate from three main hospitals-Furness General Hospital (FGH) in Barrow, the Royal Lancaster Infirmary (RLI), and Westmorland General Hospital (WGH) in Kendal, as well as a number of community healthcare premises including Millom Hospital and GP Practice, Queen Victoria Hospital in Morecambe, and Ulverston Community Health Centre.

FGH and the RLI have a range of General Hospital services, with full Emergency Departments, Critical/Coronary Care units and various Consultant-led services.

WGH provides a range of General Hospital services, together with an Urgent Treatment Centre, that can help with a range of non-life threatening conditions such as broken bones and minor illnesses.

All three main hospitals provide a range of planned care including outpatients, diagnostics, therapies, day case and inpatient surgery. In addition, a range of local outreach services and diagnostics are provided from community facilities across Morecambe Bay.
