Consultant Urological Surgeon
BHR University Hospitals NHS Trust (BHRUT) is one of the largest NHS Trusts providing acute care for approximately 750,000 people across 2 main sites; Queens and King George Hospitals.
We are a major Joint Cancer Centre working in partnership with Bart’s, UCLH & Royal London NHS Foundation Trust. BHRUT provides10% of cancer care across London and 55% of urological cancer care within the North East London Cancer Network. The Urology Unit is currently based at King George Hospital, with a dedicated 27 bedded specialist Ward, a Urology Diagnostic Unit, a Receiving Room for urgent patients and is supported by the Day Surgery Unit.
As part of the continued plan to develop & expand urological services we are looking to appoint 2 Consultant Urological Surgeon with an interest in developing and growing our core, ambulatory and diagnostic urology services, with the scope to develop further subspecialty interest within areas not already currently provided for by the department. The department’s consultants provide subspecialty services including endourology and stones, laparoscopic oncology (pelvic and renal), basic paediatric urology and gynae-urology. However following the decision of NHS England to transfer major pelvic, prostate and renal surgery from our Trust to UCLH and the Royal Free Hospital, the department is seeking to, and is being encouraged by the Trust, to develop and grow areas of activity to supplant the transferred major urological oncological activity. The Unit is supported by excellent Medical & Clinical Oncology services. There is a full complement of Uro-radiology, Interventional Uro-radiology & Uro-pathology support.
The appointee will join the existing team to oversee and take a leadership role in the delivery and management of the core, ambulatory and outpatient services. He/she will be an active member of the multidisciplinary team and play an active part in mentoring, teaching & training of colleagues at all levels. We are looking for an enthusiastic team player, who can help to develop the service and shape the future strategy of our department. The post attracts 10 PAs.
Within this role you can look forward to a professional structure where we have excellent links with the local GPs and CCGs, as well as the opportunity to work in a large and developing department with enthusiastic colleagues. There are excellent facilities for education, research & development. You will be flexible and be able to work in teams, in delivering care within the Unit.
Our Trust is situated in an excellent location, close to Central London. As well as all the advantages of being close to the city, you will discover that Essex has beautiful countryside as well as some of the best schools in the country.
