The cancer centres at GSTT and Queen Mary's Hospital, Sidcup (QMH) have been created so that we can realise this vision.

The successful applicant will work in collaboration with four other highly specialist oncology pharmacists to lead pharmacy services in the Cancer Centre at Guy's Hospital and the Satellite Unit.
