Overview

This new 10PA post has been created to facilitate expansion of Haematology services. The department provides a comprehensive clinical and laboratory haematology service for the acute trust and primary care, and manages inpatients with a full range of haematological conditions to BCSH Level 2b (2010). The Trust is a Cancer Centre and is part of the East Midlands Cancer Clinical Network. The Haematology department has JACIE accreditation as a transplant centre, linked with Leicester, and performs around 10 autografts each year. The department was a Haemophilia Centre, temporarily transferred back to Oxford (our Haemophilia Comprehensive Care Centre) pending reconsideration with planned expansion of consultant numbers. The department is a local centre for the management of adult haemoglobinopathy patients. The paediatric unit manages paediatric haematology, oncology and haemoglobinopathy patients, with the haematology consultants providing a laboratory and advisory role.

 

This is a general haematology post; however, an interest in haematological malignancy is essential and other special interests will be accommodated where possible. Opportunities for specialist laboratory and other specialist/educational and academic roles at University Hospitals of Leicester may be available.

 

Any applicant who is unable for personal reasons, to work full-time will be eligible to be considered for the post. If such a person is appointed, modification of the job content will be discussed on a personal basis with the Trust in consultation with consultant colleagues.
