Dr Nick Plowman

Dr P.N. Plowman is Head of Clinical Oncology (Cancer Medicine and Radiation Therapy) at St Bartholomew’s Hospital, London. He also has a smaller and niche practice in Children’s cancer therapy at the Hospital for Sick Children, (Great Ormond Street, London) where he is the senior oncologist.

Dr Plowman is one of the country’s most experienced cancer physicians and, with his clinical team, has introduced new medical therapies, which are now standard practice, and radiation techniques that have been initially pioneering and later best standard practice – with laboratory colleagues; he is currently exploring DNA repair mechanisms – both with regard to cancer’s sensitivity to new agents (and enhancement thereof) and, equally importantly, the likely toxicity of therapy to the normal body (and protection thereof).

Dr Plowman is an authority on the optimal management of cancer and leads one of the country’s foremost teams tackling all cancers.
