University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust

Applications are invited for a Clinical Oncologist with an interest in colorectal/anal malignancies and another tumour site.

This is an exciting time for Radiotherapy services at UHL as we have very recently been confirmed as one of only eleven Trusts in the country to be selected to host the regional (East Midlands) Operational Delivery Network following the publication of the Radiotherapy Service Specification in January.

We are also one of the few nationally accredited centres for SABR for the treatment of oligometastases and support and training can be provided for the successful candidate.

The University Hospitals of Leicester’s Oncology service forms part of “SEMOC” (the South East Midlands Oncology Centre) which with Northampton General Hospital and Kettering General Hospital NHS Trust forms one of the UK’s largest oncology centres. We provide high quality patient care as well as being a leader in clinical trials and serve the 1.6 million joint population of Leicestershire, Rutland and Northamptonshire, ensuring a viable and dynamic service able to meet future specialist commissioning requirements.

Situated in the centre of the East Midlands this vacancy will be based at the University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust at the Leicester Royal Infirmary in the purpose-built Osborne Building.

The opportunity also exists for development of other specialist interests and these can be negotiated for the right candidate. In addition the successful candidate will be expected to become involved in other exciting initiatives such as research and trials.

The UHL department is integrated with the academic unit of the University of Leicester which has achieved Cancer Research UK cancer centre status and is one of the national Experimental Cancer Medicine Centres. The successful candidate therefore also has the potential to be involved with the University in an academic capacity.

We also offer a relocation package of up to £8000 for the successful candidate
