Job Overview

An excellent opportunity has arisen to become part of the Oncology team with a specialist interest in Colorectal/ Gynaecology and CUP at The Shrewsbury & Telford Hospital NHS Trust.  However, other tumor sites will be considered.

The Department

The £4.8m state of the art Cancer & Haematology Centre providing dedicated facilities to patients at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital. Clinical Oncology occupies the ground floor with Out-Patient clinics, Chemotherapy Day Centre (24 stations) and Radiotherapy facilities being co-located. The Radiotherapy Department offers an established Varian Truebeam linear accelerator, a newly commissioned Truebeam with 6DoF couch, in addition to a 2100iX linear accelerator that provides KV imaging and CBCT to enable improved image guided radiotherapy. The latter will be replaced with a third Truebeam in 2018.  IMRT (mainly Rapidarc) and IGRT is offered as standard to appropriate sites and the department has consistently achieved the required national targets with further planned increases.  4DCT lung and DIBH breast treatments are in clinical use.

The in-patient facilities have recently been refurbished and a 30 bedded Haematology / Oncology Ward providing Specialised Care to Patients in a single setting.  The department is highly research active with 396 patients recruited into 42 cancer trials in 2016/17, supported by a team of dedicated Oncology Research Nurses, Research Radiographers and Administrative support.
