King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust part of King's Health Partners Academic Health Sciences Centre (AHSC), is one of the UK’s largest and busiest teaching hospitals with a turnover of nearly £1 billion, 1.5 million patient contacts a year and more than 12,600 staff based across 5 main sites in South East London and Kent.

The Trust provides a full range of local hospital services across its different sites, and specialist services from King’s College Hospital (KCH) site in Camberwell and the Princess Royal University Hospital (PRUH) site in Bromley, Orpington Hospital, and some services at Beckenham Beacon and Queen Mary’s Sidcup.

The Trust is recognised internationally for its work in liver disease and transplantation, neurosciences, cardiac, haemato-oncology, fetal medicine, stroke, major trauma, and Emergency Department.

We are seeking to recruit to Specialist Senior Clinical Fellow posts in the Departments of Anaesthesia and Critical Care at King's College Hospital, London. These 6 - 12 month posts provide an opportunity to undertake a year of sub-speciality training in one of the following areas:

·         Neuro-anaesthesia,

·         Cardiothoracic Anaesthesia,

·         Bariatric Anaesthesia,

·         Cardio-pulmonary Exercise Testing (CPET),

·         Perioperative Research

The successful candidates will work under the direct supervision of a named consultant in one of these areas and will be expected to work closely with them throughout their time in post. They will be expected to acquire not only the relevant clinical skills but to complete a quality improvement project and participate actively in teaching more junior colleagues. These posts are open to ST5+ or equivalent doctors with a previous minimum of 4 years anaesthesia experience. The Department of Anaesthesia has prominent research and education profiles. The Department of Neurosurgery in Kings is the only one in London to provide a service across all subspecialty areas including neuro-vascular, neuro-oncology, epilepsy, trauma spinal and paediatrics. A team of over 20 consultant neurosurgeons and 12 consultant anaesthetists support a service which performs over 2000 procedures annually.

The CPET service is run by Dr Steve James and currently sees over 200 patients annually.

The Cardiothoracic Unit in Kings performs over 1000 procedures annually and has a particular interest in major aortic work and minimally invasive cardiac surgery including TAVI and endoscopic mitral valve procedures.

King’s College Hospital NHS Trust is one of the largest and busiest in London, with a well-established national and international reputation for clinical excellence, innovation and achievement. The hospital not only serves a diverse, multi-ethnic local population but operates as one of the four major trauma centres within the capital, a major trauma centre for Kent and as a tertiary services centre for neuroscience (including stroke), haematological oncology, cardiac / cardio-thoracic (including PAMI), cystic fibrosis, and hepatobiliary (including liver transplantation) patients. As a result, King’s critical care has an unrivalled patient population in terms of clinical diversity and complexity.

The on call component of the posts will be on a 1:8 basis and will involve acute care outside the theatre environment and under the supervision of our Critical Care Consultants. The post holders will gain experience and training in multiple aspects of resuscitation particularly with regard to Major Trauma as part of the Major Trauma Team, the anaesthetic management of patients in the Cardiac Arrest Centre following out of hospital cardiac arrests and management of acute medical emergencies.
