Job overview

The post will be based within the Queen’s Centre, Castle Hill Hospital in Cottingham, in beautiful, rural surroundings just to the west of the City of Kingston upon Hull with additional responsibility for caring for patients with breast cancer at the Diana Princess of Wales Hospital in Grimsby.

Participation in audit / appraisal and CME is mandatory under clinical governance / RCR / RCP / GMC guidance. Time is allowed within core SPAs to take part in audit and there is a dedicated audit lead for the department. 10 days of study leave are funded for CPD and training. We would particularly welcome applications from those with an interest in education, clinical trials or radiation technology.

Duties other than those clinical duties specified will be in accordance with the job plan agreed between the appointee, the clinical lead and the chief executive. The job plan allows for Administration, Teaching and Medical Audit.

The candidate may be required to work on any of the Trust’s sites and across the seven day period where necessary. Secretarial support and appropriate office accommodation and IT facilities will be provided.

Work at the unit and centre may be supported by Specialist Trainees. The trainees are linked with teams of consultants.

Main duties of the job

A standard full time Job Plan will contain 10 programmed activities (PAs) comprising 8 PAs for direct clinical care (DCC) and 2 for supporting activities (SPAs). 1.5 SPAs are classed as ‘core’ and cover time for training, teaching, CPD, audit, appraisal, clinical governance and attendance at service meetings. There are opportunities to participate in undergraduate teaching within the oncology module of the HYMS medical school curriculum. Additional SPA time can be allocated for research, clinical management and educational supervisor (ES) activity. It is envisaged that this post would include the educational supervision of at least one trainee per year who could be from any level of training from FY1 to speciality registrar. It is expected that the appointee will have completed ES training or complete this within a short time of taking up the post. All new appointees will be encouraged to develop their management skills by taking on a management role which could include assisting more senior colleagues with the organisation of educational activities, audit, junior doctor management, recruitment etc… Personal preferences can be taken into account and training will be given for the chosen role. Additional PA time is negotiable for more senior management, research or educational roles within the department.

Working for your organisation

HUTH has two main hospital sites: Hull Royal Infirmary and Castle Hill Hospital with an annual budget of approximately £500 million. The Trust employs over 9,000 staff and serves an extended population of 1.25 million, delivering a number of outpatient services from locations across the area.

The Trust’s secondary care service portfolio is comprehensive, covering the major medical and surgical specialties, routine and specialist diagnostic services and other clinical support services. These services are provided primarily to a catchment population of approximately 600,000 in the Hull and East Riding of Yorkshire area.

The Trust provides specialist and tertiary services to a population of 1.25 million extending from Scarborough in North Yorkshire to Grimsby and Scunthorpe in North East and North Lincolnshire respectively. 

Our vision is ‘Great Staff, Great Care, Great Future’, as we believe that by developing an innovative, skilled and caring workforce, we can deliver great care to our patients and a great future for our employees, our Trust and our community.

We have developed a set of organisational values - ‘Care, Honesty, Accountability’ – in conjunction with our staff and these form the basis of a Staff Charter which sets out the behaviours which staff expect from each other and what staff can expect from the Trust in return. The values are reflected in our organisational goals for 2016-2021.

Detailed job description and main responsibilities

It is anticipated that the post of consultant clinical oncologist for gynaecological cancers will be based within the Queen’s Centre. A second site of specialisation is encouraged in which case the job plan would be amended to reflect two sites of specialisation rather than one to suit individual preferences. If the appointee wishes to specialise in a second cancer site, this may include caring for patients at the Diana Princess of Wales Hospital in Grimsby. For work in a peripheral clinic, travelling time is included within the job plan.

 

Our ambitious expansion plans mean that those who would prefer to specialise in cancer sites other than gynaecological cancers are welcome to apply and discuss their preference with the clinical lead.

Successful candidates will be expected to support the Trust’s goals for sustainability by encouraging and adopting sustainable ideas and practices.
