Applications are invited for the post of Senior Clinical Fellow in Viral Hepatitis


The availability of curative, well-tolerated treatments for hepatitis C presents a historically unprecedented opportunity to eliminate a chronic infectious disease through treatment. This presents unique challenges in diagnosis and designing pathways for referral, treatment and monitoring of difficult-to-engage groups.


The successful applicant will be responsible for developing novel strategies to improve patient engagement and treatment pathways for patients with viral hepatitis across North Central London. This will focus on trialling novel interventions to re-engage and treat >1500 patients in the region who have been diagnosed but lost to follow-up or never assessed. It will also involve establishing hepatitis C treatment in community-based settings such as Primary Care.


The successful candidate will be based at the Royal Free Hospital Liver Unit and have managerial responsibility over a cross-site data-collection team, gathering evidence to assess interventions. This will be supervised by the ODN Chair and supported by the ODN Pathway coordinator, ODN Data Manager and clinical nurse specialist (CNS) team.


An individualised programme of clinical sessions, research and audit will be agreed to meet subspecialist interests. Suitably experienced candidates will also be able to participate in the Hepatology on-call registrar rota.


The post is for one year in the first instance, with the possibility of extending the funding for a further two years. Opportunities may therefore be available to join the active postgraduate research programme including registration for a higher degree.

Applications are welcome from trainees in Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Infectious diseases or General Internal Medicine and Post-CCT candidates in the these specialties. All candidates must have full registration with the General Medical Council at the time of appointment and hold a current license to practice. Although most suited to specialist trainees or post-CCT candidates, applications from CMT grade doctors with MRCP and appropriate experience will also be considered.
