Renowned for its sandy beaches and granite cliffs, mild climate and close proximity to France, Guernsey offers a high quality of life in a beautiful environment. The unique consultant-delivered healthcare system offers a combination of high quality medicine and continuity of care.

We are seeking to appoint a Consultant Medical Oncologist.  This is a new post, tumour site interests would ideally include urological and gynaecological cancers but other interests would be considered.  The post holder would join two already established Medical Oncologists and this post has become necessary due to an increasing workload and the need for greater specialization in an expanding Oncology practice.  A good general knowledge of oncology and acute oncology is required.

This is an ideal opportunity for a committed Oncologist to help shape the future development of the cancer service in a small though busy island unit.

Built in 2010, the Oncology Unit is a modern, purpose-built department situated within the Princess Elizabeth Hospital.  We are well staffed with experienced oncology nurses and the Lead Cancer Nurse is based within the department. 

Guernsey does not have junior doctors and so consultants have more direct patient involvement and are able to provide excellent continuity of care. There is excellent support from the radiology department, with easy availability of MRI and CT.  A new state of the art CT scanner and SPECT-CT scanner will be installed in 2019. The MRI scanner is due to be upgraded in 2020.

Almost all chemotherapy can be safely administered on island, but for high dose treatments, stem cell transplants etc. patients are managed in our tertiary centre, Southampton University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.  Radiotherapy is also generally provided by Southampton.

Enquiries can be made to Dr Peter Gomes (email peterg@msg.gg) or Dr Yogesh Manikyam (email yogeshm@msg.gg).  Information packs are available from recruit@msg.gg or telephone the HR department on 01481 239988.

Closing Date: 8th October 2018
Interviews: 10th November 2018
