Clinical Oncology Consultant (Breast - Brain)

We have a fantastic opportunity to join our friendly department in the heart of beautiful Cornwall. Applications are invited for a substantive Consultant Clinical Oncologist post at the Royal Cornwall Hospital Trust (RCHT).

Our ideal candidate would join our team treating Breast and CNS malignancies. Due to a planned retirement from the department in late 2021, there is the option to cover Urological cancers instead of breast.

This role would be ideal for a colleague finishing their training as it will be highly supported whilst being varied. It may also suit a senior colleague looking for a change of pace and the opportunity to share their experience in a beautiful and friendly county.

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 5 departments in the country for radiotherapy treatments per machine and treatment complexity. We are commissioned for thoracic SABR and working on other oligometastatic sites. 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.

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.
