Applications are invited for the consultant post in the department of Urology. This is a new full time post in Urology due to expanding demand within the department. It is expected that the post holder will be trained in general, urology and andrology.

The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust provides a full range of acute clinical services through the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (1,000 beds) and Cromer and District Hospital, including more specialist services such as oncology and radiotherapy, neonatology, orthopaedics, plastic surgery, ophthalmology, rheumatology, paediatric medicine and surgery.

Our staff of over 7,000 treat more than one million patients; people from Norfolk, neighbouring counties and further afield. Our patients are referred to us by around 100 local GP practices but also from other acute hospitals and primary care trusts around the country.

As a university teaching hospital we have developed our research and development strategy in partnership with the University of East Anglia.

We also work closely with our partners on the Norwich Research Park and Norwich Radiology Academy to take forward our ambitious targets for research and development.

The successful candidate will join the other Consultants in providing routine and emergency urological services. In addition he/she will be expected to help to support the delivery of the andrology service. The main requirement of the Department is for a Consultant with an interest andrology due to increasing demand for the regional service.

The Urology service at NNUH is going through a radical period of development and change, with it’s own 36 bed speciality ward recently being established. Within the ward, an on-site emergency lithotripsy service has been created and we are in the process of revolutionising our prostate cancer pathway, with LA template biopsies being introduced within our purpose-built space on Edgefield Ward and other procedures, such as BPH surgery being moved to the day unit to reduce waiting times for our patients. There is a large volume robotic oncology service and subspecialist expertise in all areas of urology within the department. Growing subspecialisation has driven the need for further expansion within the functional service, and we welcome enquiries from suitably qualified candidates.
