Job Description

Indigo Healthcare are interested in looking at CVs of doctors who are looking for opportunities at Registrar level to join the Diabetes and endocrinology team at the Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust

Permanent Position

Salary:

£33,128 - £52,090 + Banding

Job Description:

Endocrinology and diabetes is predominantly an outpatient specialty but a number of patients require hospital admission for complex investigations or the management of complications. Furthermore, at least 15% of hospital inpatients have diabetes mellitus or other endocrine conditions. Increasingly, hospital-based specialists manage diabetes patients jointly with colleagues in primary care and training has been adjusted to reflect this. Patients usually have chronic conditions and management is holistic and long term often in a multidisciplinary team fashion.

Typically, specialists work in both diabetes and endocrinology although some specialists work predominantly in one rather than the other. They work with all age ranges. Many also contribute to acute or general medicine inpatient care.

Increasingly, complex endocrine diseases, and especially endocrine tumours are being managed in large referral centres. As the specialty is predominantly outpatient based, an average working day will comprise one or more hospital outpatient clinics. A specialist may see 40 to 50 patients in a day. A typical day may also include a multidisciplinary team (MDT) meeting and ward work to manage specialty referrals or to care for inpatients with general medical problems.

Location:

Nottingham is a cosmopolitan and diverse city, combining the best of old and new, and is a great place in which to live, work and play.

The three campuses of Nottingham University Hospitals are based in and around the city centre with direct access to all the amenities and attractions. 25% of Nottingham is made up of green spaces and parks but within a short journey you can be in the spectacular surrounding countryside of the Peak District, Sherwood Forest, Rutland Water, and the Lincolnshire coast. Whilst you are probably already familiar with Robin Hood (and yes, there is still a castle and a Sherriff), there is so much more to Nottingham than its legends.

Nottingham’s heritage has been built on innovation in textiles, lace making, pharmaceuticals and technology. Ibuprofen was discovered in Nottingham – as was tarmac, the traffic light, HP Sauce, the video tape recorder, and high-pressure water. We are also home to MRI – developed here and still at the heart of our world-leading research.

Nottingham is one of the fastest growing med-tech locations in the country and is leading in industries as diverse as fashion and gaming.

Qualifications

Essential Criteria:

  • Full GMC registration with license to practice.
  • MRCP
  • Evidence of being able to work in a hospital setting.
  • Recent experience in a related discipline
  • Previous Experience at Registrar Level within the NHS.
