The Trust is made up of two of London's oldest and most well known teaching hospitals.

Both hospitals have built on these traditions and continue to have a reputation for excellence and innovation. 

We are part of King’s Health Partners Academic Health Sciences Centre (AHSC), a pioneering collaboration between one of the world’s leading research-led universities and three of London’s most successful NHS Foundation Trusts.  Equality of opportunity is our Policy. The Trust provides health services to a diverse community.  

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a SpR with experience in Geriatric Medicine to join our large department of Ageing and Health as a 1 year Geriatric Oncology Clinical Fellow.

 

The post holder will work within the Department of Ageing and Health ‘Geriatric Oncology Liaison Development’ (GOLD) service. This new and innovative service is delivering comprehensive care to older people undergoing oncological cancer treatment in order to improve treatment tolerance and patient experience. The work will be based at both Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals.

The clinical work will involve the delivery of comprehensive geriatric assessment for older patient with cancer, development of care pathways and provision of support, training and development of oncology staff in 'geriatric issues'.
