A multidisciplinary approach is taken to patient care and the Department enjoys excellent working relationships with clinical colleagues in paediatric surgery and adult gastroenterology, surgery and hepatology. This post takes the lead for paediatric hepatology patients, including a monthly specialist clinic and twice yearly joint hepatology clinic with a visiting hepatologist from Birmingham Children’s Liver department (Dr Patrick McKiernan). The Department of Paediatric Gastroenterology is actively involved in clinical research and postgraduate teaching and training.

The Trust Executive Group has bi-monthly meetings with its teaching and research partners. The Dean of the Medical and Dental School is a non-Executive Director of the Trust. The Trust Board consists of 7 Executive members and 7 Non-Executive Directors including 1 independent member. There are four public Board meetings a year, normally held on the fourth Tuesday of the month. In addition, the Trust Board holds an Annual General meeting, normally in September.

  3. 3. The group works collaboratively with a range of committees and groups within the Trust, in order to ensure that there is strong clinical advice, leadership and engagement in all decision-making processes. 3. UNIVERSITY OF BRISTOL LINKS The University of Bristol Faculty of Medicine http://www.bris.ac.uk/fmd/ The University of Bristol offers an exciting academic environment with centres of excellence in all of its faculties. It also has an ambitious programme for expansion and a well-established major “campaign for resources” to facilitate future developments. The University is in the city centre and the medical school and basic science departments are within walking distance of UHBristol. Bristol is one of the few universities with schools of medicine, dentistry and veterinary science, all in close proximity. The Medical School has an intake of 250 students each year to its undergraduate medical course following recent expansion. The Dental School has also recently expanded and now has an intake of 75 undergraduate students per year. The Faculty’s research philosophy is to undertake internationally recognised basic and applied medical and health services within a setting which patients are cared for in association with undergraduate teaching and postgraduate training. 4. THE DIVISION OF WOMEN’S AND CHILDREN’S SERVICES The BRHC was founded in 1866 and is the second oldest Children’s Hospital in the country. In April 2001 the hospital relocated to new purpose built premises immediately adjacent to and linked to the Bristol Royal Infirmary and the Bristol Oncology and Haematology Centre. The hospital specialties include acute paediatrics, sub specialty paediatrics, cardiology and cardiac surgery, nephrology, intensive care (15 beds), haematology and oncology, paediatric surgery, most surgical subspecialties and a bone marrow transplant unit. There is an adolescent ward facility. Each year approximately 27,000 children are seen in the paediatric emergency department. A short stay day unit and a clinical investigations unit are available. A full range of investigative facilities is available including neurophysiology and there are comprehensive imaging services including MRI and CT supported by a team of paediatric radiologists. The BRHC is the regional centre for paediatric intensive care, cardiology, haematology and oncology, neurology, paediatric surgery, clinical genetics, endocrinology, gastroenterology, respiratory paediatrics and paediatric immunology and infectious diseases including HIV. The hospital provides supra-regional services in bone marrow transplantation, cardiac surgery and nephrology / dialysis. The remaining specialist paediatric services provided by North Bristol NHS Trust (paediatric neurosciences including neurology and neurosurgery, burns 3
  4. 4. and plastic surgery) will be transferring to the BRHC to provide a comprehensive single-site paediatric in-patient facility in 2012/13. St. Michael's Hospital accommodates the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit which services approximately 5000 births per annum. NICU has 25 cots and supports the regional feto-maternal medicine department and provides a regional service for neonatal surgery. St. Michael’s is a level 3 unit which delivers general neonatal intensive care and manages surgical, extremely preterm and complex newborn infants. Newborn infants requiring subspecialty input (nephrology, urology, endocrinology, neurology and pre operative cardiology) are managed within the neonatal unit. 5. THE WORK OF THE DEPARTMENT The Paediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition service is based within the BRHC. The service is Consultant led and supported by 3 full time Consultants in the specialty; Professor Bhupinder Sandhu, internationally recognised for clinical research in Inflammatory Bowel Disease, appointed in 1987, Dr Christine Spray (clinical lead), appointed in 2000 and Dr Dharam Basude was appointed in September 2009. The gastroenterology department has developed over the last 10 years to provide a regional service for children and young adults in Bristol and the South West (referral population of approximately 1 Million children) with acute and chronic GI and Liver disease and those requiring nutritional support. Approximately 45 new patients per year with inflammatory bowel disease are diagnosed at the BRHC around 300 children with IBD being managed directly or as shared care within the managed clinical network. Management of regional tertiary patients is via shared care with the local DGH paediatrician or locally designated lead Consultant who has or is developing a special interest in gastroenterological conditions. The department is committed to further development of clinical network within the region. Presently 4 out-reach clinics are held each year in Swindon (Professor Sandhu) and Truro (Dr Christine Spray). We hold regular educational meetings with our colleagues where difficult cases are discussed. Over 1,400 children with gastro intestinal problems are seen each year in the gastroenterology outpatient clinics, with approximately 400 of these being new referrals. There is a facility to see urgent new referrals and follow ups on the medical clinical investigations unit. The Department also has responsibility for management of in-patients with anorexia and has good working relationships with CAHMS and a level 4 in- patient psychiatric residential unit locally. The hospital is the regional centre in the south west for most paediatric specialities and provides supra-regional and national services in some specialties. The Department works closely with the Paediatric Surgical Department, particularly in the management of newborns and infants with intestinal failure, and there is a primary liaison surgeon for IBD surgery (Miss E Cusick). Presently we supervise 5 children on home TPN. A monthly joint 4
  5. 5. gastro surgical clinic is held. There are weekly clinical pathological meetings and gastro-radiology meetings. There is also close liaison with adult gastroenterology, hepatology and adult surgical colleagues based at the BRI adjacent to the BRHC. A twice yearly adolescent transition clinic takes place. A full range of diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopic services is available. Dr Spray takes the lead for hepatology and holds a monthly liver clinic and collaborates closely with Birmingham supra-regional liver unit and undertakes investigations such as liver biopsy. A joint clinic is held twice yearly with Dr McKiernan. Dr Basude has taken the lead for development of endoscopy services and there would be an opportunity for the postholder to gain further training and to support development in therapeutic endoscopy such as polypectomy (upper GI and lower GI), oesophageal dilatation for oesophageal strictures and acahlasia Support for specialist GI investigations is maintained by a nurse specialist, Mrs Jackie Porter. A second nurse specialist, Mrs Sarah Sandman looks after the patients with chronic GI conditions and serves as liaison between patients, their families and Consultants. The clinical workload of the department will be shared between all 3 Consultants, currently based on a rotation of 2 weeks on service followed by 2 weeks off service when possible according to diary commitments and agreed between colleagues. The on service Consultant will be responsible for acutely unwell in-patients, consults and urgent new referrals and will provide cover for urgent reviews of chronic patients if the named Consultant is not available. The 2 weeks off service will include 2 clinics/week (Tuesday & Wednesday afternoon) as a regular commitment. A weekly elective endoscopy list exists and will soon expand to 2 lists per week. The majority of planned endoscopies will be covered by Dr Basude and the locum Consultant (this post). Urgent endoscopies will usually be the responsibility of the Consultant on service but colleagues are expected to assist with this service depending on clinical and other commitments. Presently, extra endoscopy lists are requested on an ad hoc basis in order to meet demand and is agreed flexibly amongst Consultants.
