Employer:
University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust

Surgery
Location:
Southampton General Hospital, Southampton
Salary:
£77,913 - £105,042

The Southampton University Hospitals NHS Trust wishes to appoint a locum full time (10 PA) Consultant Pancreatic and Liver Surgeon (with some commitment to General Surgery). This is a locum post for a Consultant Surgeon to enable provision of Pancreatic and Liver Surgical services for the Central South Coast Cancer Network. The post-holder will be based at Southampton General Hospital, with some clinical outpatient and MDT sessions at other Hospitals in the Network.

This post represents a great opportunity for an HPB trainee coming to their training to get experience at Consultant level. It is expected that the appointee will require mentorship and may require further training in some procedures. It is likely that there will be a substantive HPB Consultant post available in Southampton within the next 2 years.

The successful candidate will join the present team of one academic surgeon and four NHS consultants who provide specialist services for liver and pancreatic surgery. This new appointment will be expected to provide some elective and emergency cover for regional HPB Emergencies as well as local General Surgery on call rota. Applicants will be expected to have evidence of a major commitment to pancreatic and hepatobiliary surgery, including appropriate specialist training. Training in a post CCT (or similar) pancreatic/hepatobiliary fellowship is desirable but not essential.

Please note that GMC registration (with a licence to practice) and right to work in the UK are essential for this role. Successful applicants will already have GMC registration or will be able to demonstrate they are eligible. Applicants requiring Tier 2 sponsorship should ensure they meet the Home Office application criteria prior to submitting an application.
