King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust part of King's Health Partners Academic Health Sciences Centre (AHSC), is one of the UK’s largest and busiest teaching hospitals with a turnover of nearly £1 billion, 1.5 million patient contacts a year and more than 11,500 staff based across 5 main sites in South East London.

The Trust provides a full range of local hospital services across its different sites, and specialist services from King’s College Hospital (KCH) site in Camberwell and the Princess Royal University Hospital (PRUH) site in Bromley.




An opportunity has arisen to join the virology and infectious diseases consultant team at King’s College Hospital based at Denmark Hill as a 9 PA consultant.

King’s College Hospital is a large teaching hospital delivering services across three sites (Denmark Hill; Princess Royal University Hospital and Orpington Hospital) and is one of the largest foundation Trusts in the country. It serves a wide local population from Southwark, Lambeth and Bromley and Bexley. In addition to providing a broad range of services to the local community, the hospital also has a large number of Regional services covering the Southeast and a number of national and internationally recognised specialist services including Haemato-Oncology that provides bone marrow transplantation and CAR-T cell programmes, Neurosciences, Paediatric and Adult Liver Transplantation, Cardiac and Foetal Medicine.

As a Trust our ambition is to be an outstanding local hospital for the local community and a world-class centre of specialist clinical and research excellence. Additionally, we work with King’s College London to offer training, education and clinical placements for medical, nursing and dental students. We are also proud to be a founding member of King’s Health Partners, a collaboration to deliver bench to bedside solutions to improve patient health and wellbeing.

We are looking to recruit a highly motivated consultant, dually accredited with CCT (or within 6 months of CCT date) in both Infectious Diseases and Virology, for this 9 PA role.

The South London Specialist Virology Centre within Viapath Infection Sciences at KCH is a UKAS ISO 15189:2012 accredited department. The large serology and molecular diagnostics service has been developed to ensure a full portfolio of tests are available to achieve a rapid diagnosis in a complex patient population.

This is the first post with an Infectious Diseases component in King’s. The post-holder is expected to work particularly closely with the Haematology team with respect to the Transplant Infection service. The post is based on the Denmark Hill site but the post-holder may be asked to work on and provide support at the Princess Royal site in Bromley if required.

Potential applicants are welcome to visit the department and discuss this post.
