An exciting opportunity has arisen to work within a high volume, high quality Vascular service.  This is a new post within the department for a consultant physician to support the perioperative medical care of vascular surgery patients. The successful applicant will work alongside the eight existing surgeons and seven vascular interventional radiologists.  The provision care for the post holder population will be in the form of daily ward rounds on the vascular ward, assessing and addressing the needs of acute admissions and post-operative cases. Pre-assessment and post discharge follow up will be provided through specific outpatient clinics in close collaboration with the anaesthetic department and the academic exercise physiology team. There is no out of hours commitment included in this post and the appointment will be on a locum basis initially with a view to becoming substantive by mutual agreement.
