The Great Western Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

Following further investment from the Trust, the Great Western Hospital is looking for an enthusiastic and forward thinking colleague in Medical Oncology.  The appointed candidate will join our existing team of 3 Consultants (5 Clinical Oncologists also visit from Oxford) and will help us develop and build on the successful, progressive and forward thinking cancer service that the Trust provides.   

We are looking for candidates with special interests in Breast and Gynaecology, however, other special interests might be considered for the right candidate. Within the standard job plan there will be 1 Flexible PA which can be used to undertake a variety of work of the candidates choosing (subject to approval on appointment).  Examples of what this time could be used for include Quality Improvement projects, Educational Roles, Clinics in a chosen sub-specialty or Developmental work.

The role is full time, (10Pas) but job share applicants or part time applicants will also be considered.  The Department serves a population of 350,000 and is part of the Thames Valley Cancer Network.  The team has strong links internally with key departments such as Haematology and externally with other local Trusts such as Oxford.  We have a strong collaborative attitude, working closely with our Clinical Nurse Specialists.  There is an active clinical trials team and the department participates in both undergraduate and postgraduate teaching.

Further investment is planned for the Great Western Hospital; we are working collaboratively with Oxford University Hospital in the development of a new satellite radiotherapy center in Swindon, set to open in 2020.  We have also received significant national funding to make improvements to our front door services.

The Hospital is located on the edge of Swindon with excellent travel links to London, Oxford, Bath and Bristol being within easy reach.

Relocation package of £8,000 available.
