We are seeking an enthusiastic colleague to join the Department of Respiratory Medicine on a permanent basis. This post will involve in-patient, out-patient and on-call emergency work at King’s Mill Hospital as well as out-patient work at Newark Hospital.

The Respiratory Department at Sherwood Forest Hospitals currently has three base wards for in-patients at King’s Mill Hospital with a four bedded respiratory support unit to allow acute and chronic non-invasive ventilation. Respiratory out-patient clinics are held at King’s Mill and Newark Hospitals as well in the Ashfield and Mansfield Community Hospitals.

As well as general Respiratory out-patient clinics, we have also sub-specialist clinics for Lung Cancer, Interstitial Lung Disease, Sleep/Ventilators, COPD, TB and Bronchiectasis. The Respiratory Department sees approximately 1800 new out-patients per year and over 5000 follow up patients. We run Pulmonary Rehabilitation at three sites across North Nottinghamshire. There are bronchoscopy sessions at both King’s Mill Hospital and in Newark. We also perform endobronchial ultrasound, thoracoscopy and indwelling gpleural catheters at King’s Mill.

The Respiratory department has excellent clinical support from 6 respiratory physiologists with access to full pulmonary function tests, exhaled nitric oxide, exercise tests and muscle strength tests. There are also facilities for in-patient and out-patient sleep studies. The Respiratory department also organises the community oxygen assessment programme. 

We are well served by the Radiology department with 2 Consultants who specialise in Chest Radiology. We have weekly support from the Tertiary Oncology Centre in Nottingham with 2 Oncologists and a Thoracic Surgeon attending our local MDT. We have 2 Lung Cancer Specialist Nurses and 3 Respiratory Specialist Nurses.
