We have fantastic opportunities to join our friendly department in the heart of beautiful Cornwall. Applications are invited for substantive post Specialty Doctor's in Oncology to cover numerous sessions between Monday and Friday

These popular roles focus on the ongoing care in outpatients of cancer patients and works alongside a large existing team of General Practitioners working in Oncology. There is a specific gap in support which would involve mainly working with the Breast cancer teams. You will be working closely with the Oncology Consultants and wider team, and will be trained to assess and support cancer patients, including the safe prescription of Systemic Anti-Cancer Therapy. We want you to develop in this role, becoming an important part of our team.

As the only Cancer Centre for the Duchy, the Sunrise Centre at RCHT provides a full range of cancer treatments for our patients as close to home as possible. We are early adopters of new treatments and have a large and active clinical trial portfolio, being second highest recruiters in the Peninsula. Alongside this quality of care, we also deliver in quantity, regularly being in the top five departments in the country for radiotherapy treatments per machine and treatment complexity. We continue to be the highest scoring Trust in the South-West in the National Cancer Patient Experience Survey with our highly trained specialist nurses notably praised. With £135 million in new investments, the Trust is currently building a brand new Haematology - Oncology Inpatient Unit, due to open in 2022. We have recently launched our radiotherapy SABR service.

Sustainability is integral to the Trust achieving the NHS Net Zero target. All staff are therefore actively encouraged and supported to implement new ways of working within their field of expertise

The pandemic has shown how important quality of life and work-life balance are. Cornwall is a beautiful county, offering outstanding quality of life with many opportunities for outdoor activities. Sailing waters, surfing beaches, rugged coastal pathways and a thriving arts and theatre scene all make weekends long and sunsets memorable. We have risen to the challenges posed by altering our clinical pathways to provide care and oversight closer to patients and virtually when we can.
