Cardiovascular Clinical Academic Group

Consultant in Intensive Care Medicine

Job Reference Number: 259-MEDC184ES

Applicants are invited to apply for the position of Consultant in Intensive Care Medicine at Barts Health NHS Trust (St Bartholomew’s Hospital).

In October 2014, NHS England approved the case for change for specialist cardiovascular services across north and east London, enabling the creation of the Barts Heart Centre from combining the services and staff from the London Chest Hospital and UCLH’s The Heart Hospital, with those already running at St Bartholomew’s. It is now the largest specialist cardiovascular centre in the country, bringing together a wide range of expertise in clinical care, research and education for cardiovascular conditions. With state-of-the-art facilities, the Barts Heart Centre has 10 theatres, 10 catheter labs, including 2 hybrid rooms and 255 general cardiac beds, with 98 higher acuity care beds, including 58 Level 3 critical care beds.

St Bartholomew’s Hospital hosts a large oncology service and the Thorax Centre that provides multi-disciplinary care for patients with lung disease.

From October 2016, on completion of the new St Bartholomew’s Hospital, the critical care service will be expanded and will manage three cardiothoracic critical care units on the first floor and a new 16 bedded general ICU on the 6th floor.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and motivated individual to join the existing team of Intensive Care Consultants managing the general ICU and developing extra-corporeal support services.

Applicants must be fully registered with the GMC, and hold a license to practise and be on the Specialist Registrar or within 6 months at the time of interview.
