Locum ENT Consultant with Specialist interest in Head & Neck Surgery

Applications are invited for the above post to join our ENT team. The appointee will join the existing 12 consultants. An on call commitment will be required.

We’re one of the largest and busiest teaching Trusts in England. Our three hospitals - the Glenfield, General and the Royal Infirmary – were joined together in 2000. We employ over 10,000 staff to treat a diverse population of nearly one million people across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland, as well as a further two to three million people from neighbouring counties. We are fully committed to Continuing Medical Education for consultants.

High quality specialist care particularly in cancer, renal and cardiac services has gained us a national and international reputation. We are at the forefront of many research programmes and new surgical procedures, such as keyhole heart valve surgery and our research into diabetes, genetics and cardiovascular and respiratory diseases. We also play a vital role in teaching the next generation of doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals, by working closely with local universities.

Our location in Leicester offers the opportunity to balance a quality lifestyle with a very rewarding working career. Whilst being within easy road or rail access of London and to the wider Midlands and the North via the M1 and A1, the hospital is within 40 minutes of Nottingham East Midlands Airport. Leicestershire and Rutland offer areas of natural beauty and some excellent schools all within a short distance of the hospital.

Applicants must already be on the GMC specialist register or within 6 months at the time of interview be eligible for a certificate of completion of specialist training.

As this post is regulated by the Protection of Children Act 1999, The Criminal Justice Courts Act 2000 and the Care Standards Act 2000 an enhanced police criminal records disclosure will be requested by the Trust in the event of a successful application.

Applications from job seekers who require current Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the current Resident Labour Market Test which will be in place until the end of December 2020.

For further information please visit the UK Visas and Immigration website.
