Job Reference: 166-SS-19052020

Chesterfield Royal Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
Chesterfield Royal Hospital, Chesterfield
£79,860 - £107,668

Consultant appointment in Urological Surgery

Applicants are invited for the above full time Urological Consultant post.

This is an exciting time for urology in Chesterfield with the Trust looking to invest in and develop urological services provided to the patients of Chesterfield and the surrounding area. This post is part of a wider redevelopment of urological services at the Trust.

The post is a new, whole-time Consultant post in Urological Surgery, designed to support the existing provision of urological surgery at the Trust, including a newly developed laparoscopic service for upper tract, urological pathology. There will be a requirement for the successful candidate to contribute to general urological care, including attendance at the uro-oncology weekly MDT and emergency care. An interest in urological stone disease would be desirable, but not essential.

There will be an opportunity to work with consultant colleagues in the development of new, more effective, patient care pathways. The successful applicant will be a member of a team of five consultants, providing urological care in Chesterfield for patients from North Derbyshire and surrounding areas.

Any candidate who is unable for personal reasons to work full time will be eligible to be considered for the post; if such a person is appointed, modification of the job content will be discussed on a personal basis between the appointee and Clinical Lead.

Chesterfield Royal Hospital was opened progressively between 1984 and 1989 on a green field site two miles east of the centre of Chesterfield and now provides almost all of the acute in-patient care for Chesterfield and the surrounding rural area of North Derbyshire, serving a population of approximately 350,000 people. The area to the west of Chesterfield, which attracts many visitors, is predominantly rural and includes the market towns of Matlock and Bakewell, lying in west Derbyshire, and the spa town of Buxton in the High Peak.

Chesterfield itself lies in the east of the area and is a thriving market town with a long history of trading and engineering. The Peak District National Park, which includes the Chatsworth Estate, lies within a few miles of the town boundary and attracts many visitors to the area.

There are excellent road and rail links between Chesterfield and London and other major cities in the country.
