Consultant in Clinical Oncology

10PA post Specialising in Neuro Oncology and Lung cancer

This new 10PA post is available at Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust from 1 March 2019. The post is specialising in Neuro-oncology, and lung cancer using SRS and SABR, visiting Great Western Hospital 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, along with SRS for brain metastases and benign conditions treating 200 patients per annum. Lung SABR has been delivered since 2012 and IMRT is routine for most radically treated patients in the department. Rapid Arc is installed on three linacs as well as ExacTrac for the stereotactic programme. Chemotherapy is prescribed using a pan cancer network e-prescribing system (Aria), which is used in Oxford and Great Western Hospital Swindon. 

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. In 2016, the department was designated an NCRI Established Centre of Excellence in Academic Radiation Oncology (currently only three in the UK). The department is taking forward plans to develop satellite radiotherapy units in Swindon (due to open in 2020).

Candidates are highly recommended to visit and are invited to contact Dr Claire Hobbs, Clinical Director of the Oncology and Haematology Directorate and lead for SRS, Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust, Tel: (01865) 223681 or Prof Tim Maughan, Clinical Director for OIRO, Tel: 01865 617415.
