We are looking for a skilled, innovative, collaborative and enthusiastic specialist to join our currently expanding Critical care team here at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust. As the team looks to the future, now is the perfect time to join us as we expand our services consolidating and integrating High Dependency Care with Intensive Care in an expanded 32 bed Critical Care floor. 

This new post has been created to expand the current team within Adult Intensive Care. The post when added to our current consultant workforce will make 11.5 WTE critical care consultants. The post is based at St Mary’s Hospital but the successful candidate may be asked to work on other sites depending on service requirements and developments.

There will be opportunities for Candidates to pursue interests in base Specialities.

St Mary’s is one of London’s four designated Major Trauma Centre. St Mary’s Major Trauma outcomes are amongst the best in the UK. The ICU has a high trauma workload, and the department is closely integrated with Trauma and Neurosurgical services, augmented by the use of a joint daily ward round incorporating all three Specialities.

The ICU also serves a national population for tertiary vascular surgery and is the leading centre for high risk thoracic aortic surgery for Marfan’s disease. Cancer and oesophageal surgery form an increasing part of our work, and our outcomes for Oesophagectomies are outstanding. We have recently started HIPEC surgery and other complex cancer work is increasing. The ICU operates as a paperless unit using a sophisticated clinical information system.

Intensive Care research at Imperial is led by Professor Anthony Gordon and was recently ranked 9th in the World. Professor Gordon has recently moved to join the team at St Mary’s, where there are opportunities to participate and develop research, and many high profile collaborators.

As one of the largest trusts in London, we are home to several tertiary level treatment centres including Cardiology, Cardiac Surgery, Hepatobiliary Surgery, Major Gynaecological Surgery, and Renal medicine and Transplant Surgery based at Hammersmith, whilst Neurosurgery, Plastics, and Ear Nose and Throat surgery are based at CXH. The trust has leading neuro and general interventional radiologists across its three sites.

The Unit enjoys positive working relationships with the majority of clinicians. The case mix remains varied and professionally satisfying and the opportunities for service development are numerous and can be integrated to dovetail with the interests of the appointees.

The post listed is being offered in the first instance as a locum to support the teams pending conversion/appointment of substantive post holders over the next few months. A further interview would be required for appointees who seeking substantive appointment. The department has two consultants who have completed the CESR process and is therefore able to offer mentoring for applicants who and in the process of completing accreditation.
