As the largest single site specialist heart and chest hospital in the UK, we, at Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital, have a clear vision 'to be the best cardiothoracic integrated healthcare organisation'.

We provide specialist services in cardiothoracic surgery, cardiology, respiratory medicine including adult cystic fibrosis and diagnostic imaging, both in the hospital and out in the community.

We serve a catchment area of 2.8 million people, spanning Merseyside, Cheshire, North Wales and the Isle of Man, and increasingly we receive referrals from outside these areas for highly specialised services such as aortics.

Heart and lung disease continue to be amongst the biggest killers in the UK and the communities we serve are marked by increased prevalence of cardiovascular disease, higher levels of heart failure, hypertension, coronary artery disease and an ageing population.

Our reputation for strong performance is important in delivering the best care for our patients and high quality clinical services. This is underpinned by a culture of research and innovation, delivered in modern estate and facilitated by technology. New and upgraded clinical areas are designed with patients and families fully involved to deliver their needs.

As part of our long term plan, we aim to form strong clinical and organisational relationships where possible. There is clear evidence that partnerships improve patient care and enhance quality and we aim to collaborate with a range of other providers and professionals with the aim to extending access and improve quality.


We are seeking to recruit a full time Clinical Research Fellow to work with the ICE CAP clinical research team at Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital (LHCH).

The post will be available from 01 April 2018 and will be for a fixed term of six months, Although not educationally approved in the UK training system, this post would suit applicants wishing to further their career in clinical research. Because of the short term nature of this appointment, it is essential that the successful candidate has the required skills and knowledge on appointment as there will be no opportunity for in-post training. The post is therefore best suited to someone with specific experience in clinical trial management and the IT systems in use in the Trust research unit. Full details are in the person specification description for this post.

All duties will be carried out within the Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital. The work base will be in the Research Unit but the collection of clinical data will involve interaction with the cardiac catheterisation laboratories and the ward and outpatient areas. There will be a requirement to visit other participating centres in the UK. UK travel costs will be supported.

Research and clinical supervision will be provided by Prof R H Stables. The post holder can be assured of regular contact with the supervisor (at least twice a week) and regular meetings of the specific team of which he or she will be a part. The project is a multi-centre trial examining a new strategy for the investigation of symptomatic coronary artery disease.
