''A great place to be cared for; a great place to work''

University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay has been nationally recognised as the UK’s most inclusive NHS organisation. As such we have a firm commitment to strengthening the diversity of our workforce, and therefore welcome and encourage applications from likeminded people who can support our ambition to become effortlessly inclusive. We are particularly keen to hear from protected groups – including BAME, LGBT+ and people with a disability.

Job overview

We are looking for a Colorectal Consultant, with a focus on emergency and laparoscopic surgery, with a degree of flexibility around the needs of the service.

The post has become available due to restructuring with the department, and is an interim measure for twelve months, with a view to substantive post in due course. 

The post holder will undertake maximum 10 PAs including 1.5 SPAs and 1 admin PA. On-calls will be at Furness General Hospital on a 1 in 6 non-resident basis.

Main duties of the job

You will have support from a middle-grade doctor whenever possible. Ward support will be provided by the FY Drs and specialist nurse practitioners. The administrative burden will be supported by a named secretary and waiting-list coordinator. Upon taking up the post you will be offered a consultant mentor if required.

Our strong ties with Lancaster University offer great opportunities to get involved with teaching medical students and with research; the launch of the Health Innovation Campus brings us further local opportunity.

We are therefore delighted to offer this great opportunity for a suitably trained Colorectal Surgeon to take up a  Consultant post working in a highly successful, modern and welcoming department delivering outstanding results in a breathtakingly beautiful part of England.

Working for our organisation

The Lake District is quite probably the most beautiful region in England and not surprisingly the National Park is the most visited in the country. Holiday makers are attracted here by the stunning scenery, the wealth of leisure activities and the multitude of good places to eat and drink. But why holiday here when you could be living and working here?
