Applications are invited for the post of Consultant in Cardiology at Addenbrooke’s and Royal Papworth Hospitals, shortly to be co-located on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus.

This is a unique opportunity for an enthusiastic individual to join and expand our established clinical team of 34 consultants, and represents the fourth in a series of appointments to the integrated Cambridge Cardiology service.

Cambridge Cardiology has well-developed services in Diagnostics, Heart Failure, Coronary and Valve/Structural Interventions, Electrophysiology and Transplant/Mechanical Circulatory Support. We are seeking a colleague to contribute to the Coronary Intervention service based within Royal Papworth Hospital and to contribute to General Cardiology at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, including on-call (expected 5 weeks / year).

Our goal is to successfully integrate high quality preclinical cardiovascular science with a world-leading clinical trials organisation, operating in a University/ Hospital partnership. This will be brought to fruition by the imminent re-location of Royal Papworth hospital - the UK's largest cardiothoracic hospital - to Cambridge Biomedical Campus, and the subsequent foundation of a Heart and Lung Research Institute.

Applicants must be registered with the GMC with a licence to practice and have a CCT in Cardiology (or equivalent).

The applicant must have demonstrable skills in listening, reading, writing and speaking in English that enable effective communication about medical topics with patients and colleagues, as set out in the GMC’s Good Medical Practice (2013).  Non-UK applicants must possess the IELTS/OET exam before obtaining a GMC licence to practice.

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the Resident Labour Market Test. The UK Visas and Immigration department requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UK Visas and Immigration website.

From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement.
