Candidates wishing to work part time and/or flexibly are welcome to apply.

The Department of Vascular Surgery in North Cumbria Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust is looking for an enthusiastic new colleague to join us on our journey to provide high quality vascular surgical care for the future in an organisation committed to clinical leadership and medical education.
