Locum Consultant in Medical Oncology
12 months fixed term
Beatson West of Scotland Cancer Centre
The Beatson West of Scotland Cancer Centre (BWoSCC) is Scotland’s largest cancer centre, and the largest in the UK based on activity. The centre has undergone unprecedented capital and resource investment and our clinical teams are redesigning the way oncology services are delivered to a population of 2.9m people across four Health Board areas. It offers our team of professionals a truly state-of–the-art environment in which to practise and develop their skills.
An internationally-renowned teaching centre, the Cancer Centre incorporates the academic units of Medical Oncology, Radiation Oncology, Translational Research and Palliative Care. Glasgow is a large, lively and friendly city and a great place to make a home. The schools are excellent and many are local to the cancer centre. In addition it has excellent transport links to other parts of Scotland, the UK and beyond. The city was host to the Commonwealth Games in summer 2014.
