Divisional Manager (Cancer)
This has to be one of the most exciting senior managerial jobs in the NHS. The role is responsible for ensuring that our cancer division delivers outstanding care for our patients whilst continuing to grow and provide new treatments and models of care.
We are looking for someone who can demonstrate a strong track record in strategic and operational management, placing equal emphasis on service delivery and staff engagement. The cancer division is one of the largest in the UK with an annual turnover of £189 million and approximately 1000 staff. The post requires someone who is highly motivated, an excellent communicator and an inspiring leader. They must be able to demonstrate a personal track record of delivering complex projects and solving problems across organisational boundaries. An understanding of cancer performance and priorities both locally and nationally would be desirable.
We are proud of the services that we are able to provide to our patients in our modern purpose built facilities. The current inpatient facilities opened in 2005 with outpatient and day care taking place in the UCH Macmillan Cancer Centre which opened in 2012. The post-holder will be responsible for helping to deliver the successful opening and running of Phase 4 in 2020. This is our new state of the art building which will house one of the UK’s two NHS proton beam therapy units as well as a new 80 bedded inpatient haemato-oncology inpatient unit making us one of the largest haemato-oncology units in Europe. Key to the success of the cancer division is the strong relationship with UCL allowing innovative basic and translational research. It also has a large cancer clinical trials unit which is the largest recruiters into cancer trials in the region.
