Consultant Urologist

Applications are invited for a Consultant Urologist at Royal Devon University Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust. The post will be a substantive appointment to join the existing team of four substantive consultant colleagues at North Devon District Hospital (NDDH).

We are an innovative Trust and use cutting-edge technology to make things happen quickly enabling you to make a real difference in your specialty. We are in the process of implementing a full EPR which will further support innovation.

NDDH works closely with Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital (RDE) to deliver urology and oncology care in a clinical network. There is an on call commitment locally with prospective cover locally. Whilst the post holder is formally being appointed to a role within the base hospital of NDDH, over time there may be a need to provide some clinical activity in the partner hospital site (RDE) to ensure service continuity and equity of access to appropriate services.

The department has a team of 2 Specialty Grade Doctors, 1 core surgical trainee, 1 foundation year doctor, one physician associate and Clinical Nurse Specialists.

We support flexible working and timetables which allow you to enjoy all that our unique location offers from surfing or sailing on pristine beaches to hiking or riding on beautiful moorland

Located in the South West of England, North Devon is recognised as an area of outstanding natural beauty. It extends from the edge of Exmoor in the east to Lundy Island in the west and the Taw Valley in the south providing contrasts of moor land, downs, valleys, rugged cliffs and golden sandy beaches, thus providing a range of interests and activities.

Applicants must be fully registered with the General Medical Council with licence to practice and be eligible for inclusion on the GMC’s Specialist Register (or expected entry within six months from the date of interview).

For an informal discussion, prospective candidates are welcome to contact Mr Soumya Misra, (Urology Consultant and Lead Clinician), on 01271 314129 or Keeley Cooper, Service Manager on 01271 322681. Informal visits are encouraged.

We thank you for your interest in us and look forward to receiving your application.

Our values guide everything we do. At all times, we aim to:

  • Demonstrate compassion
  • Strive for excellence
  • Respect diversity
  • Act with integrity
  • Listen and support others

Our teams of care professionals work with patients and their families to support peoples’ independence, health and wellbeing. We provide support to avoid hospital admissions, and if an admission is necessary, we try to make each patient’s stay in hospital as short and effective as possible before working with them on a safe discharge home.

According to many clinical targets, we rate as one of the best performing non-foundation trusts in England, because we treat patients in line with national waiting time standards, have very few hospital-acquired infections and meet our four-hour waiting times for urgent care. We have a huge range of clinical expertise that we share across professional spheres to ensure people get world-class care when they need it.

In our most recent staff survey, our staff voted us in the top 10% of NHS provider organisations to work for and we also came out as the top provider in the South West for our overall results. Our patients (through the Friends and Family Test) regularly report an average of over 95% satisfaction with our services.

Applications from job seekers who require 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 Resident Labour Market Test. For further information and to self-assess the likelihood of obtaining a Certificate of Sponsorship, please visit the UK Border Agency website. Note: we will be unable to obtain Tier 2 sponsorship for Bank positions.

Please note that we may close this vacancy early if we receive a high volume of applicants.
