Applications are invited for the appointment of a consultant endoscopist in the department of gastroenterology and hepatology. Our busy department provides care to patients at St George’s Hospital, Tooting and Queen Mary Hospital, Roehampton as well as to many patients from other parts of the SW London region.

There is an active research programme in hepatology and gastroenterology involving close links with St George’s Hospital Medical School.

This is an endoscopy post although expertise in therapeutic endoscopy is not a prerequisite. We are a busy training centre and endoscopy teaching experience would be advantageous.

There will be an out of hours endoscopy rota commitment but no general medicine on call. The post holder should have CCT in gastroenterology or be within six months of qualification. Full JAG certification in gastroscopy and colonoscopy is required and a JAG recognised trainer qualification.
