Medical Oncology Consultant in Breast, Lung and Acute Oncology

88,364 - 119,133

Job Description

A large South-Western Trust are looking for a full-time, permanent Medical Oncology Consultant specialising in Breast, Lung and Acute Oncology. The trust is considering either UK or Overseas trained doctors in other specialties. The trust will support with CESR.  

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 Trust was formed in April 2003. It consists of several hospitals across the South-West. 

The Trust has around 6000 highly trained doctors, nurses, midwives, health visitors, therapists, healthcare scientists and other support staff all working to deliver the best healthcare to its patients.  

The Trust aims to become one of the safest healthcare systems in the country. The Trust states its mission to be to deliver safe and compassionate care, every time.  


The Acute Oncology team is a successful proactive team within the Trust in which all patients entering the trust with a cancer related issue or a cancer treatment related issue are seen and reviewed within 24hrs. The specialty of acute oncology lies at the heart of cancer care. It links admitting acute, general specialty teams with palliative care, radiology, histopathology, nursing, and social care. By doing so, it drives forward care that is finely tuned to patient need, ensuring that appropriate management takes place in the right setting. The Trust was the first DGH to implement a successful 7 day service nationally.  

Day to day inpatient care remains with the admitting teams, but the acute oncology team aims to provide input to all oncology patients where this is required. Daily consultant ward rounds take place Monday to Friday, to review newly admitted patients with cancer-related problems. An average ward round consists of 10-12 patients. There is a nurse-delivered acute oncology service at weekends. Out of hours oncology cover is provided.

Clinic work is shared between 11 visiting consultants and a part-time associate specialist. Registrars attend some clinics.  

We have an active research department supported by a team of Research Nurses and Clinical Trials Practitioners who work across Trust Hospitals. The recruitment of patients into clinical trials is considered to be an essential part of this post. The department supports NIHR adopted studies both academic and commercial. You will collaborate with Research & Innovation department to enhance the oncology research portfolio.  


The Trust provides fantastic career development opportunities. The Trust also has a well-established oncology research department, providing the opportunity for the post holder to run and develop clinical trials. 

As a member of the Oncology department there will be a commitment to participate fully in Trust wide approaches 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  Oncologists 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.
