Professor Meghana Pandit

"UHCW is a forward thinking organisation with top class facilities and enormously talented staff. I write this as the CMO & Deputy CEO and also as a consultant gynaecologist. The opportunities to grow and excel in your field while at UHCW are huge whether you are at the start of your consultant career or whether you fancy a change as an established consultant. Our primary aim is to offer patient centred safe care that is effective and efficient".

We have two sites:

University Hospitals at Coventry and Hospital of St Cross at Rugby.

The complex, tertiary services such as cardiothoracic surgery, neurosurgery and renal transplant are at UH and elective orthopaedics and rehabilitation services are at Rugby. UHCW is one of the busiest Trauma Centres in the country and with this comes a busy hospital. Our ED sees up to 600 patients on some days and our 33 elective theatres are always full to capacity. We are a Cancer Centre and have a popular midwifery led birthing unit alongside our Labour Ward.

Our Surgical Training Centre is world-renowned and we hold multidisciplinary national and international courses here such as difficult airway, trauma and neurosurgery. We are the first hospital in Europe to implement digital reporting in Histopathology. We have led nationally recognised change programmes such as ‘Getting Emergency Care Right’ and are one of the five hospitals in the UK to be paired with Virginia Mason Institute in Seattle, USA. We have research collaborations with Warwick University and Coventry University. We are a teaching hospital with medical students from Warwick Medical School and have superb teaching facilities. We have management and leadership training for junior doctors, a thriving weekly Grand Round and an Innovation Hub for everyone to use.

You could benefit from all of this and more as a consultant at UHCW. Our values are Openness, Compassion, Pride, Partnership, Improve and Learn, and behaviours reflecting these values are very important to us. I encourage you to become a part of UHCW and like me; you will fall in love with this place and its people.
