CONSULTANT IN CLINICAL ONCOLOGY
Ref No: 176-MP64-16
Applications are invited for the post of Consultant Clinical Oncologist to commence January 2017. There will be two new posts that have evolved due to the expansion of services in Peterborough City Hospital (PCH) Oncology Unit following the development of a two linear accelerator service in May 2011 and two are advertised here. This successful department is expanding and a third linear accelerator is to be operational by Spring 2017.
The Radiotherapy Department at Peterborough City Hospital has already earned a reputation for being one of the top performing departments in the country.

We are a committed team of Clinical Oncologists, Medical Oncologists, Radiographers and Physicists delivering comprehensive cancer care to our patients. The department has an enthusiastic research team and recruits to National radiotherapy and chemotherapy trials. The Oncology department enjoys close links with the Haematology and Palliative Care services within the Cancer and Diagnostics Directorate.
The successful applicants would be expected to specialise according to departmental need but special interests of applicants will be considered and some flexibility may be possible.
The sites for the two posts will together with a third already appointed post, cover breast RT, urology, lymphoma RT, colorectal, UGI/HPB and skin cancers and AOS. The post holder will work in collaboration with existing Clinical and Medical Oncology colleagues and Clinical Nurse Specialists and consultant radiographer. The gynaecology brachytherapy service will remain under the care of Addenbrooke’s Hospital.
The post holder would be based at PCH where there are many opportunities to be involved in teaching and research.
The appointment will be whole time and employed by Peterborough & Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
