Consultant Oncology - Lucrative and Rewarding career opening !

Location: North Cumbria
Salary scale: £79,860 to £107,668 per annum depending on experience

I am urgently seeking a dynamic Consultant Radiation/Clinical Oncologist to join the team in our prestigious NHS Hospital located in the beautiful Lake District.

This is a lucrative and rewarding position enabling the opportunity to work with existing Medical and Clinical Oncology colleagues, clinical nurse specialists, nurse and pharmacist prescribers, as well as other members of the multidisciplinary teams across this site.

The oncology department is a comprehensive diagnostic and treatment cancer centre. Meanwhile the radiotherapy department has 6 Varian linacs, four with CBCT, 4DCT, MRI and PET-CT planning is routinely used.

The department is one of only 7 selected to deliver SABR for all NHSE CtE indications, along with SRS for brain metastases. Lung SABR has been delivered since 2012 and IMRT is routine for most radically treated patients. Rapid Arc is installed on 3 linacs as well as ExacTrac for the stereotactic programme.

Chemotherapy is prescribed using a pan cancer network e-prescribing system (Aria). The department works closely with the Department for Radiation Oncology, providing excellent opportunities for collaborative radiotherapy and cancer research.

The department is taking forward plans to develop satellite radiotherapy units in existing cancer units.

Located in the Lake District, this is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy what is undeniably one of the most beautiful parts of the UK Countryside. With the provision of an outstanding salary along with being located in a very affordable area, the post taker can enjoy an amazing standard of life.
