LOCUM CONSULTANT IN GASTROENTEROLOGY
Full time or Part time
Fixed term 3 months
Salary Scale - £ 80,653 - £ 107,170 per annum (pro rata)
NHS Forth Valley seeks to appoint an enthusiastic individual to join a dynamic GI service in Forth Valley.
The successful applicant will be required to contribute to the general clinical Gastroenterology and GI endoscopy service. Existing sub-specialty roles within the department include inflammatory bowel disease, hepatology, viral hepatitis, nutrition and upper GI pathology.
The GI service functions as a fully integrated unit with all members contributing to a team-based approach to patient care and this appointment will play an important role in the continuing development and redesign of Gastroenterology services. The existing Gastroenterology senior staff comprise eight Consultants and five GI specialist nurses. We have a fully equipped endoscopy department with 4 rooms (1 screening room) and an endoscopy team to include colorectal and upper GI surgeons as well as five nurse endoscopists. We have a close working relationship with surgical colleagues for complex inpatient care (hepato-pancreato-biliary disease, inflammatory bowel disease, acute gastrointestional bleeds) and weekly upper GI / HPB / colorectal / IBD multi-disciplinary team meetings.
At present 6 of the 8 existing GI Consultants also contribute to the acute general medical receiving and it is expected that this appointment will carry a similar responsibility to unscheduled care in acute medicine.
Applicants are encouraged to visit the Department and meet key staff. Informal enquiries should be directed by telephone to Dr David Watts, Gastroenterologist and Clinical Director for Medical Specialties, on or to Dr Stuart Paterson, Gastroenterologist and Clinical Lead for Gastroenterology, on
