The Department of Anaesthesia is seeking a Locum full-time (11 PA) Consultant with a special interest in Adult Cardiothoracic and Vascular Anaesthesia to join a dynamic, enthusiastic and forward thinking team.  The department is currently involved in many exciting initiatives and is looking for an individual with appropriate skills to complement this team and help keep the service in the forefront of clinical and academic excellence

The cardiac unit at St. Thomas Hospital has an international reputation and is one of the largest cardiac units in the country.  The unit has 7 adult cardiac surgeons who perform over 1200 procedures per annum.  We undertake the full range of modern cardiac procedures.  There are 4 adult cardiac operating theatres.

The Department covers all surgical specialities with the exception of neurosurgery and liver transplantation.  We anaesthetise over 50,000 patients per year.  The department has a special interest in teaching & training, regional anaesthesia, patient optimisation, enhanced recovery and difficult airway skills.  We have an active role in the trust’s high fidelity simulation centre.  We have equipped all our anaesthetic sites with Drager Primus anaesthetic machines, Phillips monitors and Sonosite ultrasound.

You must be fully registered with the GMC, hold a Licence to Practice and be on the Specialist Register, or within six months of attaining your CCT or equivalent at interview stage. The interviews will take place in early September 2018. Candidates with a CCT in February 2019 will be eligible. We are especially interested in candidates who are able to join us before January 2019.

The postholder will have regular contact with vulnerable adults and/or children (0-18 years) and therefore this post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and as such it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service to check for any previous criminal convictions.

As an organisation, we are committed to developing our services in ways that best suit the needs of our patients.  This includes asking certain groups of staff to work more flexibly so that we can offer services to patients in the evenings and at weekends.  We regard this flexibility as essential if we are to continue to provide first class patient care in the future.  As a result, any offer of employment to a consultant post will be subject to you agreeing to work a new more flexible pattern of working in the future if required and in accordance with the provisions of the new Guy’s and St. Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust consultant contract.
