An exciting opportunity has arisen in the Respiratory department at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital with a new consultant post available. This position will complement the existing team of eight full time NHS consultants, three part time NHS consultants and one nurse consultant.  

This is a new appointment and we welcome applicants with a specialist interest in Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD) to expand our existing service. Our department also provides expertise in sleep medicine, ventilation, bronchiectasis, cystic fibrosis, lung cancer/pleural medicine, tuberculosis, emphysema and difficult asthma. There are weekly multi-disciplinary meetings in lung cancer and ILD. There is also a monthly ILD meeting including histopathology. The successful candidate would be working with two consultant colleagues and a nurse consultant as part of our expanding ILD 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 on-site oncology (providing chemotherapy, radiotherapy and stereotactic radiotherapy), thoracic surgery (with four full-time thoracic surgeons providing a full range of services including Video Assisted Thoracic Surgery), interventional radiology (including CT guided biopsies and bronchial artery embolisation) and specialist palliative care.


We 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 we are also a tertiary referral centre from other acute hospitals and primary care trusts around the country.


Norwich is a beautiful and historic city set within the picturesque Norfolk countryside. It has good links to London and is located close to the stunning North Norfolk coast. Norwich also hosts a year-round calendar of events and festivals.   


As a University teaching hospital we have established our research and development strategy in partnership with the University of East Anglia. Currently we are conducting three multi-centred NIHR funded studies, in Interstitial Lung Disease, asthma and bronchiectasis. We also work closely with our partners in the Norwich Research Park and Norwich Radiology Academy to take forward our ambitious targets for research and development. The UEA School of Medicine was founded in 2002 and is now consistently ranked in the top 20 medical schools in the UK. Applicants would have the opportunity to contribute to medical student teaching.
