We are seeking to appoint two Consultant General and Upper GI Surgeons to join our forward thinking department.

Our Trust is currently in “double special measures” for quality and finances, but a new Chief Executive and senior leadership changes is driving change within the organisation to engage with staff, change culture, and renew focus on the quality of services delivered.

The General Surgical Department at Northern Lincolnshire & Goole Hospitals NHS Trust provides a variety of services across the Trust sites including General Surgery, Upper GI surgery, Colorectal Surgery, and breast. The successful candidates will join 13 Consultant colleagues in the department providing services Trust wide.

The successful candidates will provide a “hot gall bladder service” as well as providing general surgery on-call and elective general surgery. Taking part in the diagnostic service for UGI / HPB and seeing 2ww patients, the successful candidates will also be involved in the local MDT.

Depending on the specialist interest and experience of the successful candidates, we would be able to support complex laparoscopic hiatal surgery, and open/ laparoscopic bile duct exploration. The department provides the RFA Radio Frequency Ablation service for Barrett’s Oesophagus for the region. This is an exciting opportunity for developing the service further if the post holder is interested in bariatric service development.

The successful post holders will have the opportunity to be appointed as Honorary Senior Lecturer at Hull York Medical School (HYMS). This honorary appointment is in recognition of contribution to teaching and research and holders of honorary titles may request access to HYMS and University premises and facilities, systems, and library services.
