A Trust in the South West of England is looking to appoint a Senior Clinical Fellow in Oncology. This is an excellent opportunity for an Oncology doctor to join a supportive and dedicated team and gain valuable NHS experience and training before joining a Consultant/Specialty Doctor post or applying for Oncology Specialty Training. After joining the team, you will be allocated a Mentor from one of the Consultant staff team, and this mentor will closely monitor your progress in post and offer support with Clinical and Educational professional development.

There will be dedicated time weekly for supporting professional activities, which can be used to work on the CESR portfolio. The CESR Lead in the Trust is keen to onboard overseas trained doctors and offer appropriate training and support with CESR. After the initial fixed-term contract ends, the department would like to encourage the post-holder to remain as an employee and be supported towards a Consultant-level. It will be a standard 40 hours p/w (10PA) job plan, and you can expect to be doing the following:

  • Providing care to patients across a range of subsite areas (flexible depending on interests/experience)
  • Working as part of a multidisciplinary team and discussing cases with the relevant tumour site team
  • Supervising and prescribing systemic treatment
  • Reviewing new and follow up patients in outpatient clinics
