Post CCT Advanced Laparoscopic Colorectal Fellowship
The Surgery Division based at Queens and King George Hospital within Barking Havering and Redbridge NHS Trust (BHRUT) has an exciting opportunity for a new post CCT Advanced Laparoscopic Colorectal Fellowship. This post is a one year fixed term contract initially.
The General Surgery department is a dynamic, enthusiastic and forward looking with a holistic patient centred outlook providing general surgery (including general paediatric surgery). The department is formed of colorectal surgery, breast surgery (including onco-plastic), urology, vascular, gastroenterology, endoscopy and acute emergency surgical services.
The Colorectal Department is the 9th busiest colorectal unit in the country for elective cancer resection (ACPBGI data 2017) with over 200 elective cancer resections per year. This is coupled with a busy benign workload for IBD with approximately 100 resections carried out each year. This is a high volume Ileo-anal pouch centre and procedures are performed by two surgeons within the department. The unit performs at least 30 TEMS operations per year and has now completed over 150 TEMS procedures for benign rectal lesions and early rectal cancer. We are a tertiary referral centre for endometriosis, with fortnightly lists for complex pelvic cases. There is a Pelvic Floor Team with regular Pelvic floor MDT. We also perform pelvic exenteration surgeries along with Gynaecologist, Urologist and Plastics Surgeons. The Trust has two endoscopy units based at Queen’s Hospital as well as King George Hospital open seven elective days per week and providing ample opportunity for trainees to gain endoscopy training.
Applications are invited for the position of post CCT Colorectal Fellow. This is an opportunity to join a busy, dynamic multidisciplinary team to help us improve the service that we provide to our population.
We offer specialist post CCT training fellowship. Primarily training is given in Laparoscopic Colorectal resection including Laparoscopic TME for rectal cancer.
Queen’s Hospital consistently attracts senior colorectal trainees from the NE Thames region and due to our high volume unit the presence of a Fellow will not have a negative impact on their training. Feedback from trainees is always very positive and Queen’s remains a very popular choice for colorectal training within the NE Thames.
The post will develop essential and specialist skills in colorectal surgery that will enable the fellow to go onto and deliver safe and effective care to patients in a substantive colorectal consultant post. The ability to deliver an advanced and safe laparoscopic service is mandatory for newly appointed consultants and we aim to ensure a fellow is well placed to achieve and surpass these standards and also go on to train others from the very start of their consultant appointment.
Bespoke leadership skill development for becoming a substantive consultant in the NHS including clinical governance, complaints handling, team working with General Manger, Quality improvement projects, Root cause analysis training, development of educational and management duties will be offered.
The Barking Havering and Redbridge NHS Trust fully Supports this post-CCT fellow position. The fellow has a clinical supervisor who ensures training requirements are being met with regular reviews including initial, interim and end of placement review. The fellowship is supported with funded study leave and attendance at appropriate courses/ meetings is encouraged.
The service is currently establishing a service redevelopment plan, with a view to significant expansion of staff and facilities to meet the growing needs of our population as well as the planned installation of a Da Vinci XI robot.
The aim of the Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospital surgical division is to become the world leader in the field of surgical management through innovation, evidence based safe and effective patient care and the successful applicant must therefore have the pre-requisite procedural and leadership skills as well as team work, drive and ambition to succeed in achieving these goals.
Applicants should be eligible to be on the specialist register with a CCT (or within 6 months).
