A fantastic opportunity exists for an enthusiastic and ambitious individual to join our dynamic and cohesive team of consultants as part of a wider expansion plan as we move into a new purpose-built cancer centre in the near future. We are seeking a motivated medical oncology colleague to provide and develop services in urological cancers and breast cancer. If the successful candidate has particular interest in other tumour sites this will certainly be considered.
This post comes at an exciting time. Work is underway on the £28 million Dyson Cancer Centre due to open in 2021. The new centre will allow the integration of cancer diagnostics and treatment and will bring the existing clinical excellence into a therapeutic environment, to include the Living With and Beyond Cancer model of care and proactive research for the benefit of patients and their families. The successful candidate has the opportunity to be integrally involved in shaping both the physical environment and improving the way the service is delivered within this.
The job incorporates ten 4 hour sessions with an 8.5DCC: 1.5SPA split, to include 4 outpatient clinics, along with supervision of systemic treatments and attendance at MDT meetings.
Consultants are required to undertake the administrative duties associated with the care of their patients. The post holder will be expected to participate in audit and Directorate meetings and undertake administrative duties as required by the Lead Clinician. A commitment to maintain professional expertise by attendance at meetings and courses is required and completion of CME diaries will be an essential component of annual appraisal. An interest in research and teaching is encouraged with participation in projects, courses, etc to enhance the standing of the Department and Trust.
Consultants are expected to work with service managers and clinical colleagues to manage their caseload in a flexible way, to ensure clinical, national and local priorities, such as maximum waiting times for referral to treatment, are achieved. As the post holder will be part of a cohesive team they will be expected to cover for colleagues when absent or on leave.
The Acute Oncology Service commenced in April 2013 and the responsibility of running this service is currently shared equally between the eight consultants and supported by acute oncology specialist nurses. It is anticipated the post-holder will liaise with the AOS team and help support the juniors.
