London North West Healthcare NHS Trust provides specialist care for one of the largest catchment populations in London. Since our creation in 2014, we have become one of country’s largest integrated healthcare trusts. Comprising Northwick Park, Ealing, Central Middlesex and St Mark’s Hospitals, our team of 9,000 clinical and support staff serve a diverse population of approximately one million people across Brent, Ealing and Harrow.

As part of the NWL sustainability and transformation programme transformation of care delivery is central to our Clinical Strategy. With such a large catchment population we diagnose and care for one of the highest volumes of cancer patients within London. We are working closely with our two neighbouring cancer centres and commissioners to further develop local skills and expertise to meet and respond to the growing demand for oncologic services, in order to deliver more care closer to home.

Expressions of interest are invited for the post of Clinical Director for Oncology and Haematology at London North West Healthcare (LNWH). We are looking for an experienced and dynamic individual with an appetite for leadership and management, able to work with the operational management team and clinical teams to drive forward service improvement and innovation. The post is open to internal and external applicants.

The post will be based at Northwick Park Hospital but will involve working across all sites. As well as continuing to develop the clinical trials portfolio, the appointee will support the Divisional team in developing academic and clinical partnerships and integrated care pathways. The appointee will be expected to have a good working knowledge of clinical academic work, relevant clinical strategies and national diretcives, and be able to represent the Directorate at local and regional academic and R and D boards.

It is expected that the appointee will be a substantive or newly appointed consultant at the Trust, with 2 PAs of management time allocated in their weekly job plan to provide clinical leadership and oversight of the transformation program for this newly created Directorate.

Recruitment rounds are currently active for both Consultant Oncologists and Haematologists and for external applicants the appointment process will dovetail with those in order to complete the requisite Board level sign off through an Advisory Appointment Committee.

Whilst it is anticipated that most interested candidates will have a clinical background in Oncology or Haematology, the post is open to any senior clinician who has developed an appropriate level of NHS experience and a working knowledge of clinical and operational management of services integral to the delivery of cancer care.

As Deputy Divisional Clinical Director the appointee will work at executive management level to support the wider transformation and management of services across the Division and contribute to inter- Divisional pathway redesign where appropriate.
