University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust are looking to recruit a locum haematology registrar to join our young, dynamic and friendly team providing Haematology services in this busy Teaching Hospital. This post is to cover maternity leave/ out of programme trainee and will be for 6-12 months.

Coventry is UK City of Culture for 2021. It is situated in the heart of the UK, surrounded by beautiful countryside and has excellent transport links nationally and internationally (one hour to central London by train, and 30 minutes to Birmingham Airport). The city has benefitted from increasing investment over the last decade making it an attractive place to live and work. For those wishing to live outside the city, there are historic local towns, such as Warwick, Rugby, Kenilworth and Stratford all within commutable distances.

UHCW is the main teaching hospital for Warwick Medical School. In 2006 we moved into the 1,300 bedded University Hospital, which is a Major Trauma Centre and Cancer Centre with an advanced automated blood sciences laboratory and well developed research facilities. There are strong links between the Trust and Warwick and Coventry Universities and collaborative work is encouraged.

The dedicated Haematology unit in Coventry has 17 beds (nine side rooms) as well as adjacent outpatient clinic, day unit, Haemophilia unit and office facilities. Haematology services across Coventry and Warwickshire were fully integrated in January 2009, with centralisation of inpatient care (Level 2b and 3) in this unit. We also offer clinic and day case care at the Hospital of St Cross in Rugby.

The appointee will join 1-2 trainees from the West Midlands Haematology Training Programme. They will have equal access to all training opportunities, including attendance at monthly training days, laboratory and clinical training at UHCW, and will rotate through ward, clinic and laboratory, and liaison haematology posts during their time with us. Pathology services are also integrated as a countywide network service with reorganisation ongoing and specialist diagnostics being centralised on the UHC site. The clinical team includes 6 Consultants, 1 Associate Specialist, 3 specialist trainees, 1 specialty doctor, a clinical psychologist and 9 specialist nurses including nurses with interests in haemostasis, thrombosis, haemoglobinopathies, lymphoma and myeloma.

The successful applicant will hold MRCP, with full registration with the General Medical Council (GMC) and a license to practice; experience in haematology is desirable but not essential.
