King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is one of the UK’s largest and busiest teaching hospitals with over 1.5 million patient contacts a year and more than 13,000 staff based across five main sites in South East London and Kent.

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, Orpington Hospital, and some services at Beckenham Beacon and Queen Mary’s Sidcup. The Trust is recognised internationally for its work in liver disease and transplantation, neurosciences, cardiac, haemato-oncology, fetal medicine, stroke, major trauma, and Emergency Department. King’s is a key partner in one of London's foremost Academic Health Science Centres, King's Health Partners (KHP). KHP is one of only six Department of Health-designated AHSCs in England. It brings together a world-leading research-led university – King’s College London – and three successful NHS Foundation Trusts: King’s College Hospital, Guy’s and St Thomas’, and South London and Maudsley. This is an exciting opportunity to be a part of our dedicated workforce and join one of the largest and most successful Foundation Trusts in the UK with an international reputation for innovation and the desire to make a difference.

Our ambition is to be an outstanding local hospital for the local community and a world—class centre of specialist clinical and research excellence. We are globally renowned for our specialist work in stroke and major trauma, liver disease and transplantation, cardiac, neurosciences, haemato-oncology and foetal medicine. Additionally, we work with King’s College London to offer training, education and clinical placements for medical, nursing and dental students.

This work will need the very best clinicians, educators, negotiators and leaders. You must be talented, hardworking, innovative, flexible and resilient. This post will be excellent for candidates wanting to develop their portfolio and skills at any stage of their career.

As a team of dedicated Acute Medicine physicians, we provide most of the medical take, run the AMUs and the newly opened ACU, seven days a week. We are responsible for the immediate medical care of patients, establishing early plans for future management.

This will include the requirement to contribute to the out-of-hours on call rota and delivering seven-day care. We are an expanding and evolving service, join us and help develop a great clinical, academic and management team.

You must be fully registered with the GMC and hold a Licence to Practice and be on the Specialist Register, or within six months of attaining your CCT or equivalent to be eligible for interview.
