Job Description

Applications are invited for the post of Locum Consultant in Clinical Oncology at the Royal Cornwall Hospital in Truro. This post is to cover Maternity Leave and is available from February 2018. We would welcome interest from candidates across all tumour sites.

The Clinical Oncology (Sunrise) department at the Royal Cornwall Hospital, Truro, provides an outpatient service for patients with cancer who are either newly diagnosed, receiving active treatment, recovering from cancer or in need of palliative care. The Sunrise Centre runs outpatient clinics and a radiotherapy service. The department has two Truebeam Linear Accelerators. Oncology inpatients are cared for and treated on Lowen ward which has 18 beds shared with Haematology. Patients requiring day treatments are cared for in the Headland Unit, which provides chemotherapy and transfusions services.

The department is actively involved in the delivery of the education programme of the Peninsula College of Medicine and Dentistry [PCMD] and this post will be part of this provision. Consideration will be given to a suitable applicant being awarded a senior honorary academic title with the PCMD. Subject to academic performance, a joint academic/clinical appointment might be possible in the future.

Cornwall is a beautiful county which offers an outstanding quality of life and providing many opportunities for outdoor activities, with its sailing waters, surfing beaches and rugged coastal pathways for walking, and cycling along with a thriving arts and theatre scene. The major route both in and out of the county is the A30 which connects with the M5 motorway at Exeter. There is an excellent rail service with daily passenger and sleeper services, and an airport at Newquay with daily connections to many cities throughout the UK and abroad.

Applicants are required to be GMC registered with a licence to practice, it would also be an advantage to be on the Specialist Register. Applications are welcomed from those unable to work full time for personal reasons or those wishing to job-share.
