This is a new consultant appointment. The successful applicant will take up a post providing specialist oncology input into Melanoma and Acute Oncology services. These cancer services in West of Scotland are linked to the relevant local MDTs. These services are mature, developed and supported by teams of existing consultant clinical and medical oncologists. The Beatson West of Scotland Cancer Centre (BWoSCC) opened in May 2007, completing a state of the art comprehensive cancer centre that has cost £110 million. It is Scotland’s largest cancer centre, and the second largest in the UK.

The centre has undergone unprecedented investment and our clinical teams deliver oncology services to a catchment population of 2.9 million people across 4 Health Board areas.

The centre is part of the CRUK virtual comprehensive cancer treatment and research centre which also includes the Beatson Institute for Cancer Research and soon to be built Translational Research Centre. It incorporates the Regional Haemato-oncology Autologous Transplant Unit and the National Allogeneic Transplant Service for haematological malignancies.

The equipment in the new centre is state-of-the-art, and includes 11 linear accelerators with on board imaging, and incorporates Image Guided Radiotherapy (IGRT), IMRT, and Stereotactic Radiotherapy into our portfolio of available technologies.

The centre uses VMAT technology to more effectively deliver IMRT. A completely new brachytherapy unit and programme has been established in the centre. For further details of the post please contact Dr Azmat Sadozye +44 (0)141 301 7076, e-mail Ref: 56127D.
