Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust are a committed multi- professional team who provide much-valued hospital and community services to residents in South East London. The Trust has built a good reputation as a place to enjoy job satisfaction and develop professional skills and experiences. Our people value the opportunity to work in a supportive culture and, we ensure our team are well rewarded for their contribution. By joining us now, you can play a role in shaping  our organisation that continues to put patient and client care first. Whatever the challenges ahead, we’re prepared to face them as one team.



We are seeking to appoint a full time Endocrinologist to a locum position in the first instance (1 year) pending a substantive post. The post will commence as soon as possible.

This is 10 PA post with 8 DCC and 2 SPAs to cover maternity leave. It includes a requirement to join the out of hours medicine on-call rota on a 1:10 basis (likely to become 1:12 shortly). There is a separate rota for elderly care/frailty medicine, and on call commitments during the week are just from 5-8pm with 1:20 on call from home overnight.

There will be a requirement to cover a 28 bed acute ward on a one month in three basis (staffed by 2 endocrine registrars, 3 CT1/2 and 2 FY1 with a full time Physicians Associate)

There are several opportunities for out-patient work including multi-disciplinary foot, renal and paediatric diabetes clinics, reproductive medicine and paediatric endocrine clinics alongside general endocrine and diabetes. We would envisage 3 clinics a week. Whilst an interest in bariatrics/obesity medicine would be most welcome we would support any subspecialty interest.

As a University Hospital, we have a strong teaching history, the successful applicant would have the opportunity to contribute to the education of undergraduates and postgraduate trainees.

Applicants should be on the GMC Specialist Register in Acute Medicine or General Internal Medicine
