Torbay Hospital, Torquay, Devon

10 PAs

This is an exciting opportunity to join Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust, as it has recently become one of the first vertically integrated health and care organisations in the country.

The current acquisition of the community health and social care provider (Torbay and Southern Devon Health and Care NHS Trust) allows us to radically re-think and re-shape the way we deliver care, free from traditional organisational constraints.

This post will offer an opportunity to be part of designing and delivering innovative new services in Torbay and South Devon, including more integrated and streamlined care pathways for patients.

Torbay Hospital is a medium sized progressive and innovative District General Hospital providing acute services to South Devon. We are situated about two miles from the centre of Torquay and virtually all facilities, including two new linear accelerators, are concentrated on the one site.

There are excellent opportunities for a variety of lifestyles and interests being close to both the Coast and Moorland. Torquay offers excellent state schools, with academic success at the highest levels for both A Levels and the International Baccalaureate.

This is a substantive replacement post and the post-holder will principally be expected to provide Oncology services for Breast and Lower GI cancers as well as to support the Torbay Acute Oncology Service. The post holder will join an existing team of six Clinical Oncologists (including visiting consultants from Exeter), and three Medical Oncologists.

IMRT and IGRT are well established in Torbay. We have an active Clinical Trials department recruiting to Radiotherapy and Chemotherapy Trials. You will need to be committed to working in a smaller department where there will be opportunities to take on managerial and teaching responsibilities.

The post is for 10PAs with 7.5 DCC and 2.5 SPA. Those wishing to work on a part-time basis may also be considered.

Applicants are required to be on the GMCs Specialist Register with a licence to practice or within 6 months of their expected date of receipt of a CCT at the time of interview.
