CONSULTANT POST IN UROLOGY
Applications are invited for the consultant post in the department of Urology. This is a full time post created as a result of the need for expansion of specialist services and will expand the team of consultant urologists from 14 to 15.
The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust provides a full range of acute clinical services through the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (1,000 beds) and Cromer and District Hospital, including more specialist services such as oncology and radiotherapy, neonatology, orthopaedics, plastic surgery, ophthalmology, rheumatology, paediatric medicine and surgery.
Our staff of over 7,000 treat more than one million patients; people from Norfolk, neighbouring counties and further afield. Our patients are referred to us by around 100 local GP practices but also from other acute hospitals and primary care trusts around the country.
As a university teaching hospital we have developed our research and development strategy in partnership with the University of East Anglia.
We also work closely with our partners on the Norwich Research Park and Norwich Radiology Academy to take forward our ambitious targets for research and development.
We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic colleague with experience in functional and reconstructive urology, to join a subspecialist team of three within the department of 14 consultant urologists.
The Urology service at NNUH is going through a radical period of development and change, with it’s own 36 bed speciality ward recently being established. Within the ward, an on-site emergency lithotripsy service has been created and we are in the process of revolutionising our prostate cancer pathway, with LA template biopsies being introduced within our purpose-built space on Edgefield Ward and other procedures, such as BPH surgery being moved to the day unit to reduce waiting times for our patients. There is a large volume robotic oncology service and subspecialist expertise in all areas of urology within the department. Growing subspecialisation has driven the need for further expansion within the functional service, and we welcome enquiries from suitably qualified candidates.
