We are keen to appoint a dynamic Consultant Clinical Oncologist to join our team of 54 Consultant Oncologists working in Oxford and the regional units. The post specialises in Breast and Endocrine malignancy and will work with the multidisciplinary teams across these tumour sites. Consultant input will also be specifically provided to the well-established acute oncology service (AOS) at the John Radcliffe Hospital.

The oncology department in Oxford has moved into a new £108M diagnostic and treatment cancer centre. The department is 1 of only 7 selected to deliver SABR for all NHSE CtE indications, along with SRS for brain metastases.
