Consultant in Gynaecology Oncology
This is a full-time (10PA) replacement post. The West of Scotland Gynaecological Cancer service is recruiting new colleagues to join a progressive cancer centre. The centre has a referral population of 2.5 million patients and with 860 new gynaecological cancers diagnosed each year it is one of the largest UK gynaecological cancer centres. The surgical service is a high volume centre undertaking radical ovarian cancer surgery working closely with colorectal colleagues with an interest in peritoneal based malignancy following on from experience in international centres. We have noted a large increase in endometrial cancers with minimal access surgery the standard. Radical Hysterectomies for cervical cancer are in the region of 30 each year with an exenteration service offered for recurrent cervical and endometrial cancers.
The plastic surgical reconstruction service supporting the exenteration service also provides regular support for reconstructive work in vulval and perineal malignancies.
For an interested applicant there would be opportunities for collaborative laboratory based research and in addition the large clinical workload ensures there will always be opportunities for clinical based projects. We are looking to appoint surgeons with skills to complement the department and help progress our development plans.
