Applications are invited for the post of full time Consultant in Respiratory Medicine. We are seeking to appoint enthusiastic and committed colleague to join our rapidly evolving department. The successful applicant to this post will work alongside 10 existing consultant colleagues to provide core respiratory and general (internal) medicine services and to further develop our sub-specialty services.

A sub-specialty interest in Asthma is desirable. Currently Coventry sits as a spoke and feeds into the West Midlands Asthma Network for severe patients. This involves a programmed multidisciplinary meeting on a monthly basis. We are currently supported by asthma specialist nurses in the clinics and also running their own contemporaneous clinic reviews. In 2020 our patient self-administration program will be up and running and also a transition clinic for pediatric patients that will be run in a combined fashion with a pediatric asthma consultant.

The Respiratory Department sits within the Group Medicine. The Respiratory Unit has 88 beds, including 4 negative pressure rooms and ward-based NIVSub-specialty out-patient clinics for Asthma, Lung Cancer, Airways disease, TB, Pleural services, Sleep and Ventilation and Interstitial Lung Diseases are conducted regularly. We have well established EBUS service. Respiratory on-call rota will involve ‘in-reach’ into Acute Medicine. The Pulmonary Physiology Department, headed by a Consultant Clinical Scientist, provides a comprehensive service and remains only one of two Respiratory Physiology Services with UKAS accreditation. The department is supported by 3 respiratory specialist nurses and 2 ANP. The Respiratory Department encourages participation in research and there is an active research programme.

The University Hospitals of Coventry and Warwickshire is one of England’s largest teaching hospitals and offers one of the most modern healthcare facilities in Western Europe. We provide general acute hospital services to approximately 500,000 people from Coventry and Rugby, plus specialist services to over one million people from Coventry, Warwickshire and beyond. Our mission to ‘Care, Achieve and Innovate’ is demonstrated by our performance in high quality patient care, teaching and research.

The hospital is in an excellent location, surrounded by attractive countryside with market towns and villages within easy commuting distance, and an excellent choice of local schools. We are only 15 miles from Europe’s fastest growing international airport and there are excellent rail and road links to destinations throughout the UK.

We aim to appoint colleagues with skills from the above range who are flexible in their approach and who will enhance the already excellent team working amongst the consultants. Efforts would be made to ensure appropriate career development for successful applicants.
