We are looking for a motivated clinician with interests in thoracic cancers and acute oncology.

Cancer services in South East London are undergoing a major transformation programme to improve the quality of care and patient experience. The programme includes a new Cancer Centre at Guy’s Hospital housing ambulatory cancer services, opened in 2016. Clinical pathways have been revised to optimise patient care. Combined these changes have resulted in an increased workload.  This new post supports the Thoracic team across the hospitals, the Acute Oncology Services at University Hospital Lewisham, and Oncology Inpatient Services at Guy’s Hospital.

Successful applicants will be motivated individuals with a wide experience in oncology who have or are within 6 months of obtaining CCT in oncology.

Applicants must be fully registered with the GMC.

Closing date: 17/10/2018 Midnight

Interview date: TBC

As organisations, we are committed to developing our services in ways that best suit the needs of our patients.  This includes asking certain groups of staff to work more flexibly so that we can offer services to patients in the evenings and at weekends.  We regard this flexibility as essential if we are to continue to provide first class patient care in the future.  As a result, any offer of employment to a consultant post will be subject to you agreeing to work a new more flexible pattern of working in the future if required and in accordance with the provisions of the new Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust and Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust consultant contract.
