Applications are invited for the posts of Consultant in Clinical Oncology. This post has evolved due to the expansion of services in Peterborough City Hospital (PCH) Oncology Unit. 

We are a committed team of Clinical Oncologists, Medical Oncologists, Radiographers and Physicists delivering comprehensive cancer care to our patients. The department has an enthusiastic research team and recruits to National radiotherapy and chemotherapy trials. We have an active AOS service with 3.5 WTE CNS members of the team. The Oncology department enjoys close links with the Haematology and Palliative Care services on the PCH site. We are evolving close links with Hinchingbrooke Hospital since the merger to form NW Anglia Trust. 

The Radiotherapy Department at Peterborough City Hospital has already earned a reputation for being one of the top performing departments in the country. Currently we have state of the art equipment; all our patients receive online Image-Guided Radiotherapy (IGRT) and the latest rotational IMRT techniques are used routinely for all appropriate patients. We have a three Linear Accelerator service. 

The post will cover urological cancer, and skin cancer (RT only). An indicative timetable is included within the job description but there is flexibility around this. The post holder will work in collaboration with existing Clinical and Medical Oncology colleagues and Clinical Nurse Specialists and a consultant radiographer.
