Barking Havering Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust is looking for a Consultant Endoscopist to join the newly formed Digestive Diseases Centre (DDC) within the Division of Surgery. The DDC has the ambition of developing a Centre of Excellence in North East London and was created after the amalgamation of Gastroenterology, Endoscopy, Upper GI & Colorectal Surgery within the Division of Surgery.

Applications are invited for the position of a Consultant Endoscopist. This is a 10.5PA post including GI bleed on call cover.This is a new post created in response to growing local demand for endoscopy services with special reference to Advanced Therapeutic Endoscopy & Bowel Cancer Screening Programme. The Endoscopy Service is hosted within the Division of Surgery, but is delivered by clinicians in Gastroenterology, Hepatology, Upper & Lower GI Surgeons and 3 Clinical Endoscopists. The post will provide flexible cover for the endoscopy service in Queens Hospital and King George Hospital.

BHRUT being one of the busiest NHS trusts in Greater London performs over 18,000 GI endoscopy procedures per year in JAG accredited units and aims to develop to attract tertiary referrals for complex polyps with the aid of complex EMR, ESD and hybrid procedures. We are already the referral centre for TEMS procedures for NE London.

The successful applicant will contribute to the Cancer Collaborative innovation at Mile End Hospital. The EDC is a pioneering & innovative new model which has been developed by the Cancer Alliance with the North Central & North East London STP. The EDC will be able to deliver Endoscopy services with the aid of 2 rooms with a focus on Education & Training. The centre will require BHRUT Consultant Endoscopists performing lists at the EDC and this will be based on clinician preferences as well as service needs.

This is an opportunity to join a busy, dynamic multidisciplinary team to help us improve the service that we provide to our population with a view to developing JAG training courses at our Trust which the successful applicant can contribute to.

Applicants should be eligible to be on the General Medical Council Specialist Register with a CCT (or within 6 months) for Gastroenterology or GI Surgery.
