A full-time Consultant Haematologist is required at The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust. The position is based at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital and with out-patient duties at The Princess Royal Hospital, Telford, as well as a consultative on-call service for the Robert Jones & Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital, Oswestry.  This is a new position due to growing service need.

The Department of Haematology is based at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital in a £4.8m Cancer & Haematology Centre which opened in September 2012. The department caters for the patients of Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and Mid-Wales, a population of 520,000 and provides care to BSH level 2b.

Within the department is a closely knit team of Consultants & Clinical Nurse Specialists offering a broad spectrum of haematological care. Ambulatory Systemic Anti-Cancer Therapy and blood product support is delivered in our day unit with 10 seated treatment stations and 2 side rooms. The day unit side rooms also function as procedural areas for bone marrow biopsy (nurse lead) and administration of intrathecal chemotherapy. The service is co-located with the Lingen Davies Building which houses the Oncology Department, Chemotherapy Day Centre (for Oncological treatment), Radiotherapy suite, Acute Oncology Nurses, Palliative Care Team, Macmillan Information Centre and Benefits Advice Service. A Central Venous Catheter Insertion service is also located with Lingen Davies for both Haematology & Oncology.

In Telford there is a satellite service delivering out-patient care and some treatments in a small day unit. There are plans for significant redevelopment and expansion of the Telford service through the Hospital Transformation Programme.
