Consultant in Clinical Oncology with interests in Lung & Brain Cancers

This job description is for a 10PA substantive Consultant clinical oncologist post. The post is based at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (NNUH).

Candidates should have a primary interest in brain and lung cancers, although other secondary interests may be accommodated. The post holder will be joining a sub-team of two other clinical oncologists - one supporting Brain & Colorectal, and one supporting Lung & UGI.

Main duties of the job

The appointee will join a young, dynamic team with considerable collective expertise and a desire to provide world class, evidence-based, patient-centred care to the local population and beyond. The predominant referrals include patients with breast, lung, urology and colorectal cancers as well as the less common gynaecological tumours, lymphomas, upper GI and Head & Neck cancers, brain tumours, skin cancers, neuro-endocrine cancers and sarcomas. Most patients are treated on standard protocols and many are entered into clinical trials. Neurosurgery, Hepatic surgery and specialist paediatric services are provided at Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge.

The clinical team provides specialist oncology services to the Norfolk population of 900,000 people. A team-based approach in the department includes holding parallel new patient clinics, team-based complex case meetings and ward rounds as well as collaborating in service development.
