King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is one of the UK’s largest and busiest teaching hospitals with over 1.5 million patient contacts a year and more than 13,000 staff based across five 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.

King’s is a key partner in one of London's foremost Academic Health Science Centres, King's Health Partners (KHP). KHP is one of only six Department of Health-designated AHSCs in England. It brings together a world-leading research-led university – King’s College London – and three successful NHS Foundation Trusts: King’s College Hospital, Guy’s and St Thomas’, and South London and Maudsley.

This is an exciting opportunity to be a part of our dedicated workforce and join one of the largest and most successful Foundation Trusts in the UK with an international reputation for innovation and the desire to make a difference.

The Department of Rheumatology is a dynamic, forward thinking department delivering a range of rheumatology services within the Division of Ambulatory Care & Local Networks. It provides specialist clinics in inflammatory arthritis, connective tissue diseases and metabolic bone disorders. The service is outpatient focussed, with facilities for day care and in-patient care when needed. The service currently sees in the region of 2,500 new patients and 11,000 follow-up outpatient cases annually.

The post holder will provide outpatient clinics as well as supporting the care of inpatients. There will be opportunities for an appropriately qualified candidate to lead the inflammatory arthritis ultrasound service at the Denmark Hill site and to develop the young adults’ service if desired. The department has a strong focus on clinical research and therefore seeks a candidate who has a higher research degree.

The Department welcomes applications from candidates with wide experience in all aspects of rheumatology, culminating in award of CCT or equivalent. Applicants should also have experience in the day to day organisation of rheumatology services in a busy Teaching Hospital, experience of undergraduate and post-graduate teaching and of research. Successful candidates will possess CCT or eligible to apply for a Consultant position pending completion of CCT and must be fully registered with the GMC.

You must be fully registered with the GMC and hold a Licence to Practice and be on the Specialist Register, or within six months of attaining your CCT or equivalent to be eligible for interview.
