NHS Forth Valley seeks to appoint an enthusiastic individual to join a dynamic GI service in Forth Valley.  

The successful applicant will be required to contribute to the general clinical Gastroenterology and GI endoscopy service. Existing sub-specialty roles within the department include inflammatory bowel disease, EUS, pancreatobiliary disease, hepatology, viral hepatitis, nutrition and upper GI pathology. 

This post has no commitment to general medical on call but will require an out of hours commitment to a GI bleed rota with prospective cover of colleagues. 

The GI service functions as a fully integrated unit with all members contributing to a team-based approach to patient care and this appointment will play an important role in the continuing development and redesign of Gastroenterology services.  The existing Gastroenterology senior staff comprise nine Consultants and five GI specialist nurses. We have a fully equipped endoscopy department with 4 rooms (1 screening room) and an endoscopy team to include colorectal and upper GI surgeons as well as five nurse endoscopists. We have a close working relationship with surgical colleagues for complex inpatient care (hepato-pancreato-biliary disease, inflammatory bowel disease, acute gastrointestional bleeds) and weekly upper GI / HPB / colorectal / IBD multi-disciplinary team meetings. 

Informal enquiries should be directed by telephone to Dr David Watts, Gastroenterologist and Clinical Director for Medical Specialties, on 01324 566827 or to Dr Richard Burnham, Gastroenterologist and Clinical Lead for Gastroenterology, on 01324 566827.  

Applicants will be expected to have a wide range of experience in Gastroenterology and possess the MRCP (UK) or equivalent.
