The post holder will, in conjunction with the existing Consultants, have responsibilities for providing advice, screening, diagnosis and treatment of patients with STIs, including HIV infection. The London transformation project is a major challenge facing the Directorate and the post holder will be expected to help lead on innovations designed to help achieve this at 56 Dean Street. There have been significant service modernisations within the Directorate recently as well as within 56 Dean Street, and the post-holder will be expected to be actively involved in working with the team to streamline clinic capacity in light of these changes. This is likely to include training and supervision of the multidisciplinary team, as individual roles are developed.
The development of outreach is an important aspect of 56 Dean Street’s service delivery. The post holder will be expected to support all aspects of current outreach activity and any new developments.
In addition the post holder will be expected to work with the other consultants at 56 Dean Street to continue to improve outpatient HIV care including recruitment to clinical trials and telephone consultations. They will be expected to manage their own HIV cohort. They will also support the nursing team to further develop patient group directions.
The post holder will also be expected to work alongside the other consultants in providing educational supervision for the medical staff at 56 Dean Street and will participate in Wednesday morning educational activities and the Virtual Clinic, the weekly Directorate HIV resistance meeting. In particular, the post holder will have educational supervisory responsibility for nominated junior staff. This role will include appraisal of the individuals concerned.
