Locum Consultant in Clinical Oncology - Upper, Lower GI cancer and SABR
We are keen to appoint a dynamic locum consultant clinical oncologist to join our team of 54 consultant oncologists working in Oxford (22 of whom are University appointments). The post is available at Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust from June 2017. The post specialises in Lower GI cancer and SABR at Churchill Hospital, Oxford, and Stoke Mandeville Hospital, Aylesbury one day per week.
The oncology department in Oxford moved into a new £108M cancer centre in 2009 with six Varian linacs, four with CBCT. 4DCT, MRI and PET CT planning is routinely used. The department is one of only seven selected to deliver SABR for all NHSE CtE indications. Lung SABR has been delivered since 2012 and IMRT is routine for most radically treated patients in the department. Rapid Arc is installed on 3 linacs as well as ExacTrac for the stereotactic programme. Gynae brachytherapy, including interstitial treatment, is delivered in the HDR suite.
There is an opportunity to develop brachytherapy for skin cancer in post 2.
Chemotherapy is prescribed using a pan cancer network e-prescribing system (Aria).
The department works closely with the University Department of Oncology including the CRUK/MRC Oxford Institute for Radiation Oncology, providing excellent opportunities for collaborative radiotherapy research. The department is taking forward plans to develop satellite radiotherapy units in Swindon (work commenced and due to open in 2018) and Milton Keynes (business case in development).
Candidates are highly recommended to visit the department and hospital and are invited to contact Dr Claire Blesing, Clinical Director of the Oncology and Haematology Directorate, Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust, (Tel: Oxford (01865) 235207). Dr Nick Bates, Clinical Lead oncology Buckinghamshire Healthcare Trust (Tel 01865 235206). Dr Andrew Weaver, Clinical Oncologist (Tel: 01865 235209).
