Consultant Haematologist and Programme Director for Stem Cell Transplantation
This post represents a unique and exciting leadership opportunity for a suitably qualified individual to shape the creation of a new Haemato-oncology Centre of Excellence with an embedded programme of clinical research. It has been created as part of major strategic investment by Clatterbridge Cancer Centre NHS Foundation Trust (CCC) and the University of Liverpool (UoL) to expand and develop haemato-oncology as clinical focus area with the Liverpool City Region.
This investment aligns and coincides with the relocation of Haemato-oncology services currently based at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital and Aintree University Hospital into the £162 M new Clatterbridge Cancer Centre in central Liverpool (CCC-L). CCC-L incorporates 47 haemato-oncology beds (including a 15 for transplant and 4 for TYA) and is located directly adjacent to the new RLUH as well as the main UoL campus for biomedical research, thereby providing an unprecedented opportunity to integrate cutting-edge research into clinical and diagnostic cancer services. The regional integrated Haemato-Oncology Diagnostic Service (HODS) is located on the same campus and offers further research opportunities.
The job plan is negotiable but will include sessions for Direct Clinical Care (DCC), Supporting PAs (SPAs) and protected research time. The primary employment contract will be with CCC with the opportunity of an honorary contract with UoL at an academic grade commensurate with the appointee’s achievements in research and teaching.
The successful applicant will join a department comprising of 10 consultants (8.2 NHS whole-time equivalents). He/she will have the opportunity to develop a further sub-speciality disease area depending on his/her clinical interests.
