Job Type: Full-time

The cardiac and thoracic surgery specialties offer a wide range of adult cardiac surgery, and sole provision of thoracic surgery in Greater Manchester. There are currently 47 cardiothoracic surgery beds, and 16 transplant beds, along with 31 dedicated cardio-thoracic critical care beds.

Outpatients are based in the dedicated clinic suite of the North West Heart Centre. The post holder would also be expected to support an established satellite clinic at one of our local hospitals.
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.

We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic and well-motivated individual to join our
cardiothoracic surgery department as part of the Registrar team. This team consists of 14
registrars, who are a combination of Higher Clinical Fellows (HCFs), Associate Specialists and
Higher Surgical Trainees (HSTs). The number of HSTs in the department at any time ranges from
two to five. All colleagues working on this rota will be allocated to a named consultant surgeon
and will undertake their core activities with that named consultant. Consultant & registrar
pairings will be rotated on a 6-monthly basis. HCFs are afforded the same training opportunities
as HSTs. The successful candidate can expect to attend operating theatres and outpatient clinics
on a regular basis, with the opportunity to gain experience across the spectrum of cardiothoracic
surgery including mechanical circulatory support and cardiopulmonary transplantation
