Consultant in Haematology - Northampton
- Full Time
Northampton General Hospital NHS Trust
Consultant in Haematology
Applications are invited for the post of consultant in haematology to join a well-established and cohesive Macmillan Haematology Unit at Northampton General Hospital (NGH) NHS Trust. The post is a substantive replacement appointment due to relocation. The department provides a comprehensive clinical and laboratory haematology service for the acute trust and primary care and manages inpatients with a full range of haematological conditions to BCSH Level 2b (2010). The department has been accredited for autologous transplantation by JACIE.
The trust is a cancer centre and is part of the East Midlands Cancer Clinical Network. The department is a haemophilia centre, linked to Oxford for haemophilia comprehensive care. This is a general haematology post, but one which will provide opportunities for further limited sub-specialisation tailored to the special interest of the successful applicant and the clinical service requirements. An interest in haemostasis and thrombosis and/or haematological malignancy would be welcomed. The post is a full-time 10PA post with a 1:4 on-call commitment. The consultant haematologists deliver care across primary and secondary care and are supported by a high functioning team, including 2 specialist registrars, 3 FY/CT trainees, a team of specialist nurses in the haematology clinic and day unit and 5 WTEclinical nurse specialists (1 WTE lymphoma CNS, 1 WTE myeloma/leukaemia CNS, 0.6 WTE transplant CNS, 0.6 WTE haemoglobinopathy CNS and 1.8 WTE blood transfusion CNSs). There is excellent laboratory support and a team of anticoagulant nurses. There are specialist inpatient facilities (28 beds, including 12 side-rooms and 4 HEPA-filtered rooms) for haematology/oncology, adjacent to the haematology clinic and laboratory areas; junior doctor cover is provided for this ward as part of a specific rota for this specialist area.
NGH NHS Trust is a large (750 beds) district hospital providing a full range of acute services for a population of around 380,000. A new building housing an interventional cardiology centre, an inpatient renal unit, and the nuclear medicine / nuclear cardiology department was opened in 2008 and a new day surgery facility opened in 2012. The Macmillan Haematology Unit was extended and completely refurbished in a joint project funded by Macmillan and NGH NHS Trust, opening in 2012. The oncology chemotherapy unit has also completed refurbishment this year.
The county is part of a designated growth area, and will see significant development and consequent population growth over the next 25 years. Northampton has a distinguished heritage and is one of the fastest growing commercial towns in the UK. There is easy access to London and the Midlands through road and rail networks.
