Employer:
University Hospitals of Leicester
Department:
Medical Oncology
Location:
LRI, Leicester
Salary:
Consultant

Full Time Consultant in Medical Oncology (HpB and Lung tumour sites).

The post is based at the Leicester Royal Infirmary with some clinics and MDTs at Glenfield Hospital and Leicester General Hospital, but provides advice across the whole Trust and for the community.

This post will give the candidate an excellent opportunity to be part of Thoracic Oncology which is renowned nationally as one of leading centre for the treatment of lung cancers. UHL has a comprehensive trials unit and delivers all the up to date cutting edge treatment. This post holder will work closely with HpB team which is undergoing massive reconfiguration. All the comprehensive treatments are offered and this is one of few tertiary units dealing with HpB tumours.

The Oncology Department offers a comprehensive service to these groups of patients including chemotherapy, targeted agents, complex IMRT and stereotactic treatments. The treatment of all cancers is becoming increasingly complex with an increase in the options of radiotherapy and systemic therapies available. With more and more treatments available, the activity continues to increase and this requires the addition of a new consultant colleague to maintain this service and we therefore require an additional post in Medical Oncology.

UHL has strategic objectives which include building a world class reputation in research, education and training relevant to the diverse population in Leicester, delivering an excellent patient experience and ensuring UHL is fit for purpose. UHL has recently successfully bid to host the East Midlands Radiotherapy Network.

UHL’s purpose is to deliver “Caring at its best” for all the people who visit Leicester’s hospitals, either as patients, the public or as staff. As one of the largest and busiest teaching hospitals, our vision is to move from where we are now to where we want to be and the Trust’s newly published Quality Strategy is called “Becoming the Best”.

In becoming part of our team you too can show your commitment to the delivery of high quality services to patients with our Trust values.
