We are looking to appoint a vascular surgeon to join the Northamptonshire Vascular Service.

This post will cover elective and on-call vascular surgery at Northampton General Hospital as well as providing satellite clinics and day case surgery at Kettering General Hospital. NGH is the designated arterial centre for Northamptonshire and the successful applicant will be part of a team of six vascular surgeons and three interventional radiologists, who cover all aspects of vascular surgery including aortic surgery, complex endovascular lower limb and aortic interventions and carotid disease. The service is affiliated to the Northamptonshire AAA Screening Programme. It also supports the hyper acute stroke unit and countywide renal services and is central to a well-established multidisciplinary diabetic foot service.

The service is well supported by vascular NTNs from East Midlands with a vascular middle grade rota and has strong affiliations with Leicester University and the Medical School. The post will suit candidates with interests in vascular access, endovascular surgery or teaching. A higher degree with research interest is desirable but is not essential.

This is a replacement post, and is expected to commence in April 2021. You will need to be on the specialist register with a declared interest in vascular surgery or be within 6 months of completion of CCT.

Applicants are encouraged to visit the department and informal enquiries are welcome and should be directed to Mr Valsan Kappadath, Head of Service on 01604 544010 in the first instance.
