Job Description



Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust, a large University of Manchester Teaching Trust is highly regarded by patients, other NHS Trusts and independent organisations.

A fantastic opportunity has arisen for a Consultant Endocrinologist to join an established department at Salford Royal Foundation Trust. The department consists of 10 consultants, two of whom subspecialise in endocrinology, this post being the third post which has arisen because as a result of retirement. The post offered is approximately 8735 PAs, although there is some flexibility surrounding this for the right candidate.

The endocrine department provides sub-specialist services in neuroendocrinology (with neurosurgery and radiotherapy occurring on site), Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (which is multidisciplinary in nature) and also weight management services (with Bariatric surgery on site). The department also supports an active and rapidly expanding endocrine surgical service. Regional MDTS in Pituitary and Endocrinology are hosted by the department.

The previous post-holder provided subspecialist services in hypogonadism, gynaecological endocrinology, PCOS and hirsutism.

Other services in the department include a lipid service and an extensive Diabetes service, including pre-pregnancy, GDM and antenatal services, diabetic foot clinic, pump clinic, paediatric and adolescent clinics in addition to community clinics. Due to the retirement of Dr. Bob Young, an additional vacancy has arisen within Diabetes and this is subject to separate advertisement. We are therefore looking for two consultants to join the team. This presents a fantastic opportunity to negotiate the perfect job plan to suit your skill set.

We are looking for someone to support and develop these services, extend them into community, liaising with our primary care colleagues and work with other specialties with overlapping clinical interests. Previous relationships have been forged with dermatology in the management of Hirsuitism and acne; similar relationships could be made with the Rheumatology department in the management of osteoporosis, for example. Depending on your experience of, your clinical interests could be accommodated within the job plan.

You would also be expected to partake in ward cover arrangements, currently rotating on a monthly basis with three other consultants. Whilst on the wards, clinical commitment including clinic will be reduced or cancelled. It is expected that the successful candidate will undertake a daily ward round, whilst covering the wards. The trust is moving towards a seven day service, although plan are not currently formalised. It is anticipated that consultants would also work no more frequently than 1:8 weekend mornings. You will also take part in the general medical on call, currently at a frequency of 1:12 weekends and 1:30 week day nights though this is unlikely to continue when seven day working is fully implemented.

The department is supported by endocrine nurses, diabetes nurses and a very engaged management team. Additional PAs may be available for those wishing to undertake additional clinics in Chronic Fatigue.

In line with the Trust’s Single Equality Scheme we welcome applications from everyone irrespective of ethnic origin, disability, age, gender, sexual preference, disability, nationality, religion, marital status, social back ground or trade union membership. However, as members of ethnicity minority groups, individuals with disabilities and women are currently under-represented at this level of post, we would encourage applications from members of these groups. Appointment will be based on merit alone.
