Applications are invited for a full time substantive consultant post in clinical
Oncology. This is a new post in Upper GI and hepatobiliary cancer and will
include neuroendocrine tumours.
The successful applicants will join a young, dynamic team of 13 consultants managing cancer across Norfolk. There is a strong site-specific team ethos to working in the department and within each cancer site. Treatment is according to local protocols developed in conjunction with cancer network tumour groups. The post holder will specialise in acute oncology and will be expected to cover a minor tumour site – to be determined according to the expertise of the successful candidate.
Radiotherapy is a particular strength with IMRT and IGRT as standard in many tumour sites. Chemotherapy is provided in purpose built units at Norwich and Great Yarmouth.
Norwich is a great place to live. The city supports a wide variety of cultural activities. The North Norfolk coast is on the doorstep as is the Norfolk Broads National Park. The city also has some excellent schools and a thriving university. The city is only 2 hours from the centre of London.
