Job Description

Explore an exciting career prospect with A&E Agency in the North West of England, situated just south of the magnificent Lake District National Park. We are actively searching for a dedicated Oncology Consultant to join our team on a full-time permanent basis.

The ideal candidate will primarily focus on two main tumor sites, with some flexibility based on individual preferences, ideally encompassing systemic therapy for Lung, Upper GI, or Renal cancers. Additionally, the successful applicant will play a crucial role in the acute oncology inpatient service.

This position presents a remarkable career opportunity for a clinician with vision, determination, and a commitment to collaborating with the four other Medical Oncology Consultants and three visiting experts. Our Trust is an integral part of the Greater Manchester, Lancashire, and South Cumbria Strategic Clinical Network.

Key responsibilities for the successful appointee include:

  • Offering specialised in-patient and out-patient consultations and case management
  • Collaborating with colleagues to provide care for inpatients with oncological conditions, including cross-covering patients treated by other oncologists
  • Serving as a core member of relevant Cancer Multidisciplinary Teams (MDTs) and contributing to network site-specific cancer groups
  • Assisting the Acute Oncology Team in delivering an acute oncology service, in partnership with community teams
  • Supporting the achievement of national and local standards for cancer care
  • Strengthening and expanding oncology services for the local population

This role currently does not involve on-call duties or regular weekend work, although the possibility of occasional extra sessions may be considered with time off in lieu provided. Newly appointed consultants will benefit from mentoring opportunities.

If you are a registered GMC professional with relevant experience and a strong dedication to delivering high-quality patient care, we invite you to join our team. A&E Agency connects exceptional medical professionals with exceptional healthcare opportunities.
