The Radiotherapy department was further expanded in 2013/14, providing state-of-the art external beam radiotherapy from a complement of seven fully IMRT/IGRT enabled linear accelerators, including intracranial SRS/T and SABR, as well as a superficial unit for treatment of skin cancers. A second chemotherapy unit was opened in 2017 at the Chorley site, continuing the investment into Oncology services in the organisation.

The successful applicant will join a large multi-professional team of Consultant Clinical & Medical Oncologists, Clinical Scientists, Therapeutic Radiographers and Nursing Teams.  You will be part of an established senior team who are forward thinking and development focused. Oncology Services are based in a purpose built centre at our Royal Preston Hospital site,

Research is actively encouraged and supported in both the central and peripheral sites, broad access to NCRI badged trials exists, support by an efficient research team. Within our Centre for Health Research and Innovation we have a dedicated on site clinical research facility and radiology support.

We are looking to expand our current establishment of Consultant Oncologists and this advert is for a Clinical Oncologist in Lung and Colorectal cancers.
