Applications are invited for a Substantive Consultant post in the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery department. This new post is primarily to work with the breast reconstruction service.

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 plastic surgery department at the Norfolk & Norwich Hospital has an international reputation for excellence in microsurgery, reconstructive techniques and skin cancer.  We collaborate with many other departments in the hospital, providing an integrated hand trauma service with a TIG Hand Fellow in conjunction with the orthopaedic department; the Head & Neck service has strong links with both the maxillofacial and ENT departments and the skin cancer service is strongly linked to our colleagues in dermatology, providing a wide range of skin cancer treatments and also has a national TIG Fellow attached to it.  Our breast surgery department has innovated a wide range of novel and progressive techniques in the field of breast reconstruction and has a truly international reputation in this regard.  We also collaborate with colleagues in the paediatric department to provide paediatric plastic surgery, including hypospadias and we are regularly involved with all areas of reconstruction including genito-urinary, gastro-intestinal and spinal surgery.
