This new post has been developed due to the planned expansion of services in 2017.
Our Radiotherapy Unit opened in May 2011 with two Linear accelerators and we opened a third in early 2017 and expanded our RT catchment area to offer more local patients radiotherapy.
The new post holder would be expected to treat urology, upper gastrointestinal (UGI), hepatobiliary (HPB) cancers and lymphoma (radiotherapy only) in collaboration with existing Clinical and Medical Oncology and haematology colleagues and to be the Trust Oncology lead for Lymphoma.
The allocation of time would be approximately urology 0.3, upper gastrointestinal 0.2, hepatobiliary 0.2 and lymphoma 0.3 although there may be some flexibility required dependent on departmental workload. These tumour sites will continue to be covered by existing Clinical Oncologists and two Medical oncologists (UGI and HPB), existing Clinical oncologists (urology) and haematologists (lymphoma) supported by relevant Clinical Nurse Specialists allowing mutual support and equitable allocation of duties.
Team working is strongly encouraged with each Clinical Oncologist for a tumour site attending the relevant multidisciplinary team (MDT) meetings and running a weekly clinic on a separate day to enable patient choice and the workload to be shared.
The out-patient clinics are co-located with the Day Unit, Radiotherapy Unit and in-patient ward allowing convenient planning and review of chemotherapy and radiotherapy patients. There will be one day a week allocated to attending the Kings Lynn Urology MDT either in person or by tele-link and a local clinic in Wisbech.
The appointment will be whole time and employed by North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust (NWAFT). Any consultant who is unable for personal reasons, to work full-time, will be eligible to be considered for the post. If such a person is appointed, modification of the job content will be discussed on a personal basis in consultation with consultant and managerial colleagues.
The post holder is managerially accountable to the General Manager, Cancer and Diagnostics and clinically accountable to the Associate Clinical Director, Cancer & Diagnostics.
Applicants will be expected to be fellows of the Royal College of Radiologists and members of the Royal College of Physicians or have equivalent experience and training and must be fully registered and licensed to practise with the General Medical Council. The appointee must be on the GMC’s Specialist Register prior to taking up the appointment. Specialist Registrars who have successfully completed all parts of their training must be listed in the specialist register within six months of the appointment committee.
