Full Time

We have opportunities for enthusiastic anaesthetists to join our vibrant and growing department. These posts have arisen due to expansion of services and replacement sessions for trust, university, and external roles that members of our team have taken on. They would suit anaesthetists who are looking to spend a year or longer with us, either as a stepping stone to a substantive consultant role, to enhance their clinical expertise or to experience life in a Central London Teaching Hospital. We are known for our research and innovation, but recognise that our success comes from a department which is supportive, cohesive, providing excellent standards of care, and where all members, particularly full time clinicians, have an equal standing. Our Anaesthetic Department prides itself on being a friendly, cohesive and inclusive team supported by outstanding surgical and multidisciplinary staff.

Essential criteria: Full registration with the GMC, GRCA or equivalent; current General Medical Council (London), Specialist Registration in Anaesthesia or equivalent experience. Applicants who are within six months of obtaining CCT may apply

University College London Hospital is a major teaching hospital. As a regional cancer centre and tertiary referral centre we have a challenging and complex workload. We have particular expertise in bariatrics, upper and lower GI, orthopaedics, urology, paediatric, head and neck, thoracic and endocrine surgery. Our labour ward delivers 6000 babies a year and has an interest in high risk medical patients including GUCH. Our US guided regional block room, the first in the country, provides high quality analgesia and is a hub for education and research. We are building a new hospital, Phase 4, in addition to the current services, which will add a proton beam therapy unit and an 8 theatre short stay surgical suite – due to open in 2020.

Life outside work is also rich and rewarding. The hospitals are situated in a lively corner of central London, a short walk from the British Museum, Regent’s Park, Covent Garden, Oxford Street, and Kings Cross. Travel to the hospital is easy on public transport, or by bike, from all over London and the surrounding area.

There will be an on-call commitment and/or weekend work for anaesthesia services. These are full time (10PA) positions

Candidates for interview are encouraged to visit the hospital. For further information or to arrange to visit the Department please contact: Dr James Holding (Clinical Lead), Email: james.holding@nhs.net or 0203 447 3348.
