This is a full time 10 programmed session post which will provide outpatient genitourinary medicine services. This includes screening for and treating sexually transmitted infections, contraception provision and HIV outpatient treatment and care. There is scope to manage patients with genital dermatoses and more chronic conditions such as pelvic and vulval pain. Although based at the hospital, the consultant will have duties each week at another genitourinary medicine clinic within the Trust which will encourage support and co supervision with consultant colleagues.
Our client’s HSE Trust came together with Community Services to form a new integrated health care organisation delivering integrated acute and community health services to patients committed to providing quality care along the whole pathway; at home, in the community and in hospital.
They provide services from the main hospital sites, six community hospitals, and around 12 locations across the area – plus the care delivered at home.
Our HSE trust client has a range of services includes hospital based emergency and planned care, including surgery, medical treatment for serious and life-threatening conditions, paediatrics and women services, community based services for long term conditions like diabetes or respiratory illness; and health and well-being services to improve health and prevent illness, such as smoking cessation and alcohol reduction. So now, whatever the health care needs of our community, and wherever they need them in the County, they are committed to providing the best standard and quality.
The Genitourinary Medicine and Sexual Health Service provides integrated sexual health services throughout the county. The level 3 Genitourinary medicine departments are based at three hospital sites. These level 3 services have open access within 48 hours and provide expertise for complex sexually transmitted infections, genital dermatoses and outpatient HIV treatment and care as well as screening. Full contraception provision is available in these clinics. The genitourinary medicine clinics also have a central role in post exposure prophylaxis to blood borne viruses.
The department is part of a regional clinical network for HIV with inpatient and complex co infection care. The department is a discrete department currently adjacent to the Main Outpatients Department within the hospital, with plans for refurbishment/relocation under review.
A County wide review of GUM and Sexual Health Services was carried out resulting in the transfer of contraception and sexual health (CASH) services and the Sexual Health Improvement and Screening Team (SHIST) transferring from Primary care to the Trust in 2010. The entire sexual health team is part of Care Closer to Home, one of three care groups in the Trust. Community services, paediatrics and obstetrics and gynaecology are in the same care group.
