“A Rare Opportunity for You to Join a Centre of Excellence”

We are pleased to invite applications from skilled GP’s for a GPWSI to augment the existing breast team. The successful applicant will work with a team of 5 Breast Surgeons, a Breast Physician, a Trust Grade Doctor and a team of junior doctors including the National Oncoplastic Fellow, Specialty Training Registrar, ‘SHO’ and F1. The team is nationally recognised as a dedicated specialist Oncoplastic Breast Unit. The post attracts 2 Programmed Activities (9 hours a week). We would especially value any joint applications so we could have more than one new postholder.

About the Team

The Breast Team in Exeter deliver diagnostic and therapeutic strategies to elective and emergency patients with malignant and benign breast conditions referred from primary care, from the dedicated Exeter based screening unit and for those tertiary referrals both within and outside the South west Region. The workload is significant with approximately 650 new breast cancers treated each year along with the ongoing aftercare of the existing patients.

The dedicated breast care team has established a National reputation for clinical and research excellence and is seeking to further enhance this regionally and nationally.

The Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust is a first-wave Foundation Trust that delivers high quality care to a population of 360,000 people from Devon, with some specialist services serving in excess of 450,000. The Trust received this year a rating of Good from the CQC inspectorate. The University of Exeter Medical School affords exciting opportunities to participate in both undergraduate teaching and research. The historic cathedral city of Exeter is situated in the middle of the South West Region with easy access to the countryside and coast of Devon and Cornwall. It is well served by rail, road and air links.
