Locum Consultant in Oncoplastic Breast Surgery

Please note that whilst the recruitment process is managed by University College London Hospitals (UCLH), this is a joint post between UCLH and Whittington Health. Part of the Programmed Activities are funded by UCLH and part by Whittington Health, and you will be expected to work across the two Trusts.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an Oncoplastic Breast Surgeon to support the development of new pathways for breast patients across North London.

University College London Hospitals and Whittington Health are seeking to appoint a 9-session Consultant in Oncoplastic Breast Surgery with a commitment to high quality patient care, innovative service models, delivery of performance targets, and excellence in education/training.

Whittington Health and UCLH have been working together for many years in ad hoc areas wherever this has made sense organisationally or clinically. We are part of the same Sustainability & Transformation Partnership (STP) footprint which has a number of particularly relevant work streams around fragile services, and workforce efficiencies which we believe can all be progressed effectively between the two Trusts.

The collaboration aims to improve the quality, safety and experience across a common local population in Haringey, Islington and Camden by improving services across the two Trusts and supporting a population approach to health care.

The collaboration programme Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was agreed by both Boards in March 2017. Whilst both Trusts remain independent, they are committed to working closely together.

The breast teams at both Trusts are currently working together to develop their vision for the partnership, and the appointment to this joint post will be a key enabler and stepping stone for the project.
