Applications are invited for the new post of Consultant Gastroenterologist with an interest in Neuroendocrine Tumours at University Hospital of Wales and University Hospital Llandough.

We are looking to appoint a motivated and enthusiastic Gastroenterologist to join our established multi professional team. This is an excellent opportunity to join a team committed to delivering high quality compassionate care for patients across South Wales.

Cardiff & Vale University UHB host a nationally commissioned tertiary cancer service for patients with Neuroendocrine Tumours (NETs) in South Wales. This is an innovative, patient-centred, tertiary service achieving awards including the UK Patient Experience Network award, British Society of Gastroenterology service development commendation and other national awards.  As one of the larger centres in the UK, receiving approximately 220 new patients a year, it is hoped that European NET Society Centre of Excellence accreditation will be achieved soon.

The majority of patients have Gastroenteropancreatic-NETs (GEP-NETs) involving elements of specific luminal gastroenterology, endoscopy and hepatobiliary medicine expertise. The service developed through clinical leadership working with endocrinology, surgery, oncology, radiology, nuclear medicine, palliative care and pathology teams, identifying patients’ goals through co-production. 2 Clinical Nurse Specialists provide nursing support and coordination for patients across South Wales. There is an active research programme with clinical trials and internationally recognised, innovative clinical research.

The Department provides a comprehensive service for patients with GI disorders from Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan. We also provide tertiary services not available in local hospitals such as complex hepatobiliary disease, EUS, oesophageal manometry, complex IBD, intestinal failure and home parenteral nutrition and advanced endoscopy including EMR and ESD. The ERCP service is based at UHW and deals with 450 cases per year of a secondary and tertiary nature. Bowel screening colonoscopy is performed at UHL (3 screening colonoscopists), which is also a regional centre for endoscopy training, and training and assessment of potential screening colonoscopists. 

Cardiff and Vale University Health Board is recognised as a teaching centre of excellence in a wide range of clinical services. 

Academic interests will be encouraged; research and teaching in collaboration with Cardiff University’s School of Medicine will be expected.

Although this post is full-time, consideration will be given to applicants who require flexible working arrangements.

Applicants should either be on the Specialist Register or be a Specialist Registrar within six months of their expected date of receipt of a CCT / CESR(CP) at the time of interview.

You will be able to take advantage of the excellent Consultant contract for Wales.  The basic salary range for this post is £82,356 per annum to £106,920 per annum plus a further £26,672 per annum available in Commitment Awards.  Consultants in Wales paid on one of the first three points of the substantive Consultant pay scale also receive a Wales recruitment incentive payment.

Applicants must ensure they provide the names and contact details of referees covering at least the last three years of their employment/training history in full.  In addition, applicants who are currently or have most recently been employed as a substantive Consultant or as a Locum Consultant in post for more than 12 months must also provide the name of their Medical Director as an additional referee.
