This is a high performing and supportive department for overseas doctors new to the NHS, or UK-based doctors looking to further careers in the UK. 
 

THE NHS TRUST: 

This NHS Trust was formed in April 2000. The Trust consists of two District General Hospitals providing services to approximately 450,000 people living in surrounding areas.  

The Trust consists of several hospitals: its Cancer Centre in particular is renowned and held in high esteem within the South-East of England. 

THE ONCOLOGY DEPARTMENT AND TEAM:  

The Oncology Centre receives approximately 8,000 new patients every year and increasing and is within the top 25% of Trusts in the UK for cancer waiting times, meeting the 85% 62-day national standard consistently since August 2019, hitting its 2-week-wait target since September 2019. The Centre has an income of £50m and is home to a custom designed department with dedicated radiotherapy and outpatient facilities as part of the main District General Hospital, which was upgraded in 2012.  

Due to recent funding the Trust has been able to purchase five new state of the art Varian Trubeam Linear Accelerators across its Oncology Centre. Over the 2 sites we have 9 Linear Accelerator Treatment Machines and 3 CT Planning Simulators.  

The research department is made up of more than 60 dedicated staff and recruits around 3000 patients a year to clinical studies across 24 different specialities. The trust benefits from being near academic partners such as Universities and local Medical Schools (KMMS). Additionally, the trust has studies open that are interventional and observational, as well as studies that investigate genetic profiling. Within radiotherapy, the Trust are also undertaking SABR trials. We have many clinicians that support oncology research trials within various specialities.

As a member of the Oncology Centre there will be a commitment to participate fully in a county-wide approach to the delivery of cancer care.  This includes attendance at governance meetings, multi-disciplinary team meetings and the practice of cross-referral with other site specialists. All Trust Consultants are encouraged and supported to take leadership roles within the department, at an appropriate point in their consultant development, in audit, governance, tumour-site specific groups, research and education. 

LIFE IN SOUTH-EAST ENGLAND:

The South-East of England is a great place for you and your family to call home. It might be called ‘the Garden of England’, but there’s a lot more to it than that.  

With excellent transport links into the City, the South-East offers many of the benefits of living in London, without a lot of the drawbacks - plus, of course, the additional benefits of living in the countryside. 

Depending on location, you can be over 100km away from London, but still get right to the centre in under 40 minutes. This makes it perfect for families, where busy city workers can quickly and conveniently commute to work in the bustling city, whilst bringing the children up in the more sedate, family-friendly surroundings of the countryside. 

Tucked away in the corner of the UK, the South-East is well-known for its picturesque countryside and stunning coastlines. 

A great selection of schools is a key draw to the Home Counties for many families, and the South-East is no exception. The area boasts some of the best schools in the country, both private and state, including Tonbridge School, Benenden School, and Invicta Grammar School.
