North Bristol NHS Trust

Senior Clinical Fellow in Colorectal Surgery ST3+

We wish to appoint a Senior Clinical Fellow in Colorectal Surgery to commence 07th April 2021. This post has been approved by the Royal College of Surgeons as part of the RCS Senior Clinical Fellowship Scheme.

The North Bristol Colorectal Fellowship aims to provide post CCT trainees with a stepping stone between being a competent colorectal trainee and an appointable colorectal consultant who is ready for independent practice. The post provides an opportunity to focus on a sub-specialty interest of choice, with a high volume of relevant operative cases and comprehensive experience of investigation and management of patients with rectal cancer, pelvic floor disorders or inflammatory bowel disease.

The Colorectal team comprises 6 consultant surgeons who have a strong commitment to teaching, audit and research, supported by a team of specialist nurses for cancer, enhanced recovery and stoma care. The colorectal department has a national reputation in advanced laparoscopic colorectal surgery. The department is recognised by ACPGBI as a Specialist Coloproctology Unit, suitable for training of colorectal SpR’s during the latter stages of subspecialist training.  Last year the team saw 2049 emergency patients, 1600 outpatients, 190 colorectal cancers, 750 elective procedures and 1900 endoscopy procedures.  We participate in bowel cancer screening, offer advanced endoscopy training in EMR, as well as transanal resection techniques such as TAMIS.  We are progressing with TATME for low rectal cancers and transanal approaches for ileo-anal pouches.  The colorectal team is planning to develop robotic colorectal surgery now the Trust has acquired a second robot shared with the Urology department. We work closely with the gastroenterologists managing inflammatory bowel disease and intestinal failure patients.  North Bristol is the regional centre for urology and we operate on complex pelvic cancers with the urologists including pelvic exenterations.  The plastic surgery department is on site if reconstructive flaps are required.  There is a pelvic floor practice with anorectal physiology and a monthly city-wide pelvic floor MDT to offer a combined approach with urology and gynaecology.

The colorectal team is part of the rota providing 24 hour emergency surgical care at North Bristol NHS Trust. NBT is a major trauma centre and the post holder will manage major trauma cases when doing emergency general surgery on call.

If you are shortlisted we will contact you by email with details of your interview and you will need to confirm your attendance. Please note that North Bristol NHS Trust will not pay interview expenses in connection with the above.

Closing Date: 29th January 2021

Salary: £48,075

In addition to the above there will be supplements for out of hours working if applicable.

Late applications will not be accepted

NBT is committed to equal opportunities.
