The Position
This post will see you joining an innovative and welcoming department of five part time Consultants, an accredited advanced trainee in Gastroenterology, and a Resident Medical Officer. Your duties will include inpatient and outpatient care, teaching, research and management. The department serves a local population of 100,000 for basic services, and a regional population of 250,000 for tertiary services including ERCP (350/year), EUS, SpyGlass DS cholangioscopy, Capsule endoscopy, Oesophageal motility and pH monitoring. 

The outpatient clinic has a large IBD and Liver disease component. There are also opportunities for attachment to the large undergraduate clinical school and the clinical research unit, both of which are based at the hospital. 

The Hospital
This post is based in a 300 bed public hospital that offers all acute medical services. It is a major referral facility that provides general and specialist health services to a population of about 250,000 people. With recent redevelopments, the facilities are modern and functional and the staff areas are excellent.

The hospital has strong links with the local University, as a result the medical school is co-located on the same campus. As an accredited teaching hospital there is a strong focus on teaching and research and an opportunity to be involved with both.

The Location
