Head Medical are delighted to be working with East Kent Hospitals to recruit a Consultant Immunologist to join the passionate team at the William Harvey Hospital based in Ashford.
The successful applicant will be expected to help and oversee provisions across all areas of immunology (allergy, immunodeficiency, and laboratory immunology). A busy (more than 250,000 tests per annum) UKAS ISO15189 accredited laboratory immunology service operates from our Ashford laboratory, supported by a team of specialised biomedical scientists and providing laboratory immunology services to the whole of Kent. There are currently no clinical immunology services offered within Kent and Medway (population 1.8 million) and this new post represents an exciting opportunity to develop and expand such provision. East Kent Hospitals Trust is fully committed to the development of this new service.
The appointee will have a leadership position within the medical school, delivering an appropriate taught module (musculoskeletal and immunology) in year 2 of the academic programme. Three PAs will be devoted to teaching delivery, student selection, assessment, and pastoral and academic support activities.
