UCLH Cancer

Cancer care is one of the top three strategic priorities for UCLH.  Our vision is to become Europe’s premier Cancer centre.  An ambitious programme of transformation and investment underpins this vision.  Highlights include the centralisation of complex care across north and east London to UCLH encompassing haemato-oncology, urology, head & neck, neuro-oncology and upper GI, and building a new hospital containing 135 haematology beds, 10 theatres, leading edge imaging and the nationally commissioned Proton Beam Therapy Service, due to open in 2019

Department overview

UCLH is situated in the Heart of London’s west end with easy access by all forms of public transport.

The Radiotherapy department opened in 2005 and has 4 linear accelerators of which there is a replacement programme in progress. A GE CT-Sim is on the planning section and radiotherapy imaging also takes place in the MRI and PET suites. The department boasts a comprehensive brachytherapy suite and a Gulmay skin unit.

The department delivers radiotherapy services for a broad spectrum of cancers which include a wide range of common cancers as well as specialist treatments including a paediatric and adolescent workload, brachytherapy and isotope work, total body irradiation and limb sarcoma radiotherapy. The department is delivering SABR through the commissioning through evaluation programme; also the trust was recently appointed in the SRS contract.

In October 2012, the Department of Health (DH) published the Strategic Outline Case (SOC) for the Development of a national Proton Beam Therapy (PBT) service. This SOC looked at the evidence and options for the development of a PBT service in England and concluded that it should be implemented on two sites, UCLH and The Christie (Manchester). The DH agreed to fund one accelerator and three gantry treatment rooms on each site. The preferred and agreed option for UCLH was to construct a PBT facility on the UCLH campus; construction commenced in 2015 and the planned completion date is summer 2020. The National PBT service will focus mainly on head and neck, brain and sarcoma treatment sites. Paediatrics, and teenage and young adults, will make up approximately one third of the patient cohort.

As UCLH has been designated as one of two national Proton Beam Therapy (PBT) centres for the UK and the Trust will be one of two sites delivering PBT across the NHS from 2020, staff will therefore undertake rotations between the photon and proton departments

The Role

This role offers an opportunity to be part of the radiotherapy team at UCLH and is a rotational post covering a wide range of areas within the Radiotherapy service covering pre-treatment, treatment-prep, treatment units and brachytherapy.

UCLH is seeking a committed individual with the energy and focus to continue building on the existing service of excellence.
