We are looking to appoint an HCPC registered Clinical Scientist to join the dosimetry section of the Radiotherapy Physics group at The Christie.
The Christie NHS Foundation Trust, situated in South Manchester, is the largest cancer treatment centre of its kind in Europe, and an international leader in cancer research and development. The Christie provides a radiotherapy service to a population in excess of 3 million in the Greater Manchester and Cheshire area. The radiotherapy physics group provides a comprehensive support service to clinical oncology including advanced radiotherapy and brachytherapy techniques such as IMRT, IGRT, VMAT, FFF, intra-cranial SRS, lung SABR, SABR CTE for oligomets, PDR and HDR brachytherapy treatments. In addition to the Withington site there are two operational radiotherapy satellite centres located in Oldham and Salford. These facilities provide local access to IMRT, IGRT and VMAT treatments for cancer patients. The centre at Salford also provides a stereotactic radiosurgery service. Completion of the Christie satellite centres has equipped The Christie radiotherapy network with a total of 15 linear accelerators across the three sites. The Christie team is currently working towards delivering the National Proton Beam Therapy programme in conjunction with UCLH which will be clinical in 2018. Other exciting developments include participating in the international MR linac consortium with The Christie set to be one of the first hospitals in the UK to offer MRI-guided radiotherapy.
