Consultant Physician in Respiratory Medicine 

We are delighted to offer this substantive appointment as a replacement post, for a colleague to support the Respiratory service at St Helier Hospital, London – part of Epsom and St. Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust. This is a 10 PA post for a Consultant Respiratory Physician. As a Department, we are one of the biggest Respiratory Units in Southwest London and would love to hear from you.

The successful candidate will provide specialist clinical advise in Respiratory Medicine both for inpatients and outpatients management. We feel that the suggested job plan allows a perfect work/life balance with inpatient care, outpatient clinics, “in-reach” respiratory advice to the wards. St Helier Hospital provides Respiratory input in general and sub-speciality clinics (Asthma/COPD/ Allergy-Immunology/ Cancer and Tb).

We would be happy to support any other/additional interest that will complement the Department.

We are proud to have excellent links to our neighbouring Trusts (Royal Marsden/ St. George’s Hospital University of London) for provision of Oncology, Thoracic Surgery and EBUS.  As part of our development, we have established a thriving Lung Cancer service supported by both hospital sites, with direct input from our tertiary centre colleagues. We also offer an in-house PleurX/Pleural service at our Epsom site.

Our hospital has two regional centres– the South West London Renal Centre and Immunology Unit, covering South West London and Sussex/Surrey.  This creates a unique environment enabling exciting referrals, optional clinics and opportunities for research.

We have dedicated support from Chest/Interventional Radiologists and you will be supported in your work by large teams of experienced Respiratory Nurse Specialists, Tb and Lung Cancer Nurses. Furthermore we have a full complement of junior doctors, including an Associated Specialist.

The Department has 8 substantial Consultant colleagues, working on two sites, St Helier Hospital (3 colleagues: Drs Kahr/Varney/ Medveczky and this advertised post) and Epsom Hospital (4 colleagues: Drs Ratoff/Rahman/ Wells/Molanguri). The post will include shared on-calls with Physician colleagues for General Internal Medicine, currently on 1:16 rota.

This post would suit both – a visionary, motivated Consultant post as well as an already established Physician. Please refer to the detailed proposed job description for more information about the Department and the post.

We request that successful applicants must have relevant experience in Respiratory Medicine with full registration with the GMC and already have CCT, or be within 6 months of obtaining CCT in Respiratory Medicine.

For informal discussions or expressions of interest, please contact Dr Thomas Medveczky, Clinical Lead for Respiratory Medicine, Tel No. 020 8296 2401. Candidates are encouraged to attend an informal visit prior to interview.
