Applications are invited for a Consultant Urologist to work in a successful and cohesive department in a teaching hospital. This is a new post; the successful applicant will join a team of six other Consultant Urologists to deliver core urology and develop a sub-specialist interest, ideally to augment the delivery of female/reconstructive urology and/or andrology, depending on their experience. Mentorship/training can be provided if deemed necessary.
The successful applicant will be an excellent team player who is willing to be flexible and develop skills with other team members. In addition, we are looking for a surgeon who will contribute to audit, participate in and initiate research and who will be actively involved in clinical governance, administration and other management tasks. Alongside these aspects, the appointee will participate in the training of medical students and junior doctors.
