Job Description

King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
Site: Kings College Hospital (Denmark Hill)
Consultant in Virology and Infectious Diseases
£82,022 - £109,830 p.a incl. of London Zone Allowance
Full time - 10 PAs

An opportunity has arisen to join the virology consultant team at King’s College Hospital based at Denmark Hill as a 10 PA consultant. This is one of three new Infection Sciences consultant posts recently created at King’s College Hospital: two in Microbiology and one in Virology [this post]. This expansion underscores the Trust’s commitment to continue to deliver world class Infection services for our patients, representing one of the most complex case mixes of any teaching hospital.

King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is one of the UK’s largest and busiest teaching hospitals, part of King's Health Partners Academic Health Sciences Centre (AHSC), is one of the UK’s largest and busiest teaching hospitals with a turnover of nearly £1 billion, 1.5 million patient contacts a year and more than 11,500 staff based across 5 main sites in South East London.

The Trust provides a full range of local hospital services across its different sites, and specialist services from King’s College Hospital (KCH) site in Camberwell and the Princess Royal University Hospital (PRUH) site in Bromley.

In addition to providing a broad range of services to the local community, the hospital also has a large number of Regional services covering the Southeast and a number of national and internationally recognised specialist services including Haemato-Oncology that provides bone marrow transplantation and CAR-T cell programmes, Neurosciences, Paediatric and Adult Liver Transplantation, Cardiac and Foetal Medicine.

As a Trust our ambition is to be an outstanding local hospital for the local community and a world-class centre of specialist clinical and research excellence. Additionally, we work with King’s College London to offer training, education and clinical placements for medical, nursing and dental students. We are also proud to be a founding member of King’s Health Partners, a collaboration to deliver bench to bedside solutions to improve patient health and wellbeing.

We are looking to recruit a highly motivated consultant either with dual accreditation CCT in both Infectious Diseases and Virology or Virology-only CCT (or within 6 months of CCT date), for this role.

The South London Specialist Virology Centre within Viapath Infection Sciences at KCH is a UKAS ISO Apply accredited department. The large serology and molecular diagnostics service has been developed to ensure a full portfolio of tests are available to achieve a rapid diagnosis in a complex patient population.

This is the one of three first-ever posts with an Infectious Diseases component in King’s. The post-holder is expected to work particularly closely with the Haematology team with respect to the Transplant Infection service. The post is based on the Denmark Hill site but the post-holder may be asked to work on and provide support at the Princess Royal site in Bromley if required.

The postholder will have regular contact with vulnerable adults and/or children (0-18 years), therefore this post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975, and as such, it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service to check for any previous criminal convictions.

Potential applicants are welcome to visit the department and discuss this post.

To discuss the post please contact: Dr Jim Wade, Clinical Lead for Infection Apply , Dr Malur Sudhanva, Consultant Virologist and Clinical Director of Viapath KCH laboratories Apply, Dr Mark Zuckerman, Consultant Virologist and Head of Department Apply and Dr Victoria Potter, Haematology Transplant Director Apply .
