The Department of Radiotherapy and Oncology is seeking to appoint an ambitious and motivated individual as a Consultant in Clinical Oncology following the planned retirement of a senior consultant. The successful applicant and will join the existing team of 14 clinical oncologists and 6 medical oncologists at the James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough.

This post predominantly covers the delivery of radiotherapy to breast cancer patients in the symptomatic and screening clinics at the University Hospitals of North Tees in Stockton and Hartlepool. There is an additional role supporting the Cancer of Unknown Primary MDT at The James Cook University Hospital. Other area of site specialisation would be considered for the right candidate.

The Cancer Centre based at The James Cook University Hospital serves a population of just over a million and benefits from being at the heart of one of the largest acute trusts in the country.  All major services are present on the one site giving the department excellent support in all aspects of medicine, surgery and diagnostic services.

The department boasts state of the art radiotherapy facilities and a large chemotherapy unit. Breast cancer radiotherapy forms a significant part of the department’s workload with well-established protocols for delivering high quality radiotherapy using dynamic MLCs, VMAT and IGRT. Treatment in DIBH and VMAT to include IMC irradiation is routine. The department has a long history of both developing and delivering innovative radiotherapy having had a lung SABR programme in place for more ten years.  Recognition of this technical expertise by Elekta, the linac manufacturer, has seen the department become their International reference site.

There is a NCRN trials unit located within the department and recruitment into clinical trials is increasing.  The department also has its own substantial local research fund and is keen to support personal research projects.  We hope to appoint individuals with the drive to expand our research portfolio and establish links with local universities.
