Cancer services in Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust are undergoing a major transformation programme to improve the quality of care and patient experience. The programme includes a new cancer centre housing ambulatory cancer services which opened in 2016 and a new cancer treatment centre at Queen Mary’s Hospital Sidcup (QMS) which opened in May 2017. Following a review of cancer services, clinical pathways are being revised to optimize patient care. As part of this, an expansion of the Clinical Oncology workforce is being undertaken.

We are looking for clinicians with interests in the above cancers and service development. Successful applicants will be motivated individuals with FRCR or equivalent and a wide experience in Clinical Oncology and in particular the tumors groups listed above (both chemotherapy & radiotherapy is required). The successful applicants will be working with a team of consultants in a joint-clinic/MDT setting across Guy’s and St Thomas Hospital NHS Trust and partner hospitals in the South East London Accountable Cancer Network.

Please see specific job descriptions for further details.

As part of the commitment of the Trust to providing the highest quality of cancer care, the new purpose-built cancer centre on Guy’s campus opened in September 2016 and a new cancer centre at Queen Mary’s Hospital in Sidcup opened in May 2017.
