Consultant Paediatric Gastroenterologist

Job Reference: 425-A-19-29200

Employer:
Sheffield Children's NHS Foundation Trust
Department:
Medicine
Location:
Sheffield
Salary:
£77,913 - £105,042 per annum

An exciting opportunity has arisen to join a forward-looking and innovative team of gastroenterologists at Sheffield Children’s Hospital. This post has been created to maintain excellence in Paediatric Gastroenterology and to cater for the expansion in paediatric gastroenterology/hepatology and nutrition within Sheffield and the Yorkshire and Humber Region.

Candidates should be trained in Paediatric Gastroenterology and have spent three years in approved posts/programmes in paediatric gastroenterology, hepatology and nutrition. The appointees will share the workload of the Centre for Paediatric Gastroenterology.

Applicants should possess, or be within six months of receiving CCST/CCT in general paediatrics with sub-specialisation in Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition.

It is essential that the candidate has the necessary skill mix to both lead on the inpatient care facility whilst managing a busy outpatient work schedule including an average of three clinics and one endoscopy list per week. It is envisaged that non-inpatient work will reduce during on-call weeks. The endoscopy lists would mainly involve diagnostic upper and lower GI endoscopy case mix with scope for developing endo-therapeutic skills over time. Applicants will also be required to cross cover the expanding nutrition service.

If the person appointed elects to undertake a maximum part-time contract, he/she will be required to devote substantially the whole of his/her time to the duties of the post and give them priority at all times.

Any Consultant 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 with the Trust in consultation with Consultant colleagues.
