Full Job Description

NHS Scotland is committed to encouraging equality and diversity among our workforce and eliminating unlawful discrimination. The aim is for our workforce to be truly representative and for each employee to feel respected and able to give their best. To this end, NHS Scotland welcomes applications from all sections of society.

The Beatson West of Scotland Cancer Centre (WoSCC), is seeking to appoint a Consultant Medical Oncologist with special interest in Ovarian cancers.

The Beatson West of Scotland Cancer Centre (BWoSCC) opened in May 2007, completing a state of the art comprehensive cancer centre that has cost £110 million.  It is Scotlands largest cancer centre, and the second largest in the UK. The centre has undergone unprecedented investment and our clinical teams deliver oncology services to a catchment population of 2.9 million people across 4 Health Board areas. The centre is part of the CRUK  virtual comprehensive cancer treatment and research centre which also includes the Beatson Institute for Cancer Research and soon to be built Translational Research Centre. It incorporates the Regional Haemato-oncology Autologous Transplant Unit and the National Allogeneic Transplant Service for haematological malignancies.

The equipment in the new centre is state-of-the-art, and includes 11 linear accelerators with on board imaging, and incorporates Image Guided Radiotherapy (IGRT), IMRT, and Stereotactic Radiotherapy into our portfolio of available technologies. The centre uses VMAT technology to more effectively deliver IMRT. A completely new brachytherapy unit and programme has been established in the  centre. A state of the art satellite centre opened on the Monklands hospital site in Lanarkshire in November 2015.This was conceived and delivered to specifically address radiotherapy capacity issues with the added benefit of local radiotherapy delivery.This facility provides a further 2 LINACS fully integrated with the parent site.

The Beatson is an internationally renowned academic centre, with Professors of Medical Oncology, Clinical Oncology, Translational Research and Palliative Care currently in post. 

The Beatson West of Scotland Cancer Centre Clinical research unit is the largest of its kind to be funded by Cancer Research UK.  The unit offers support to all clinicians within the BWoSCC to initiate and conduct first-in man clinical trials.  The unit has a large portfolio of Phase I-III studies across the range of cancer sub-specialties and has a particular interest in the development of new anti-cancer drugs, supported by designated staff and facilities for Phase I/early Phase II clinical trials.  The unit also houses Scotlands first ever co-ordinating centre for the National Cancer Research Institute.

Glasgow has excellent schools, public transport and recreational facilities.
