Consultants' Specialities

There are six consultant clinical oncologists and two consultant haematologists who work within Cancer Services, supported by nursing and administrative staff. There are also two palliative care consultants who are based in the department and also work at the local St Elizabeth Hospice.

The consultant clinical oncologists each have their own areas of speciality, which are listed below.

The consultant oncologists are supported by a clinical assistant, two registrars (who are on rotation with Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge) and three senior house officers who also work with the Haematology Department.

The consultant haematologists share the care of all patients with haematological diseases. A specialist registrar who is on rotation with Addenbrooke’s supports the consultant haematologists, as does a senior house officer who also works with the Oncology Department.
