The Breast Surgery Department in Hull is the largest breast unit in the cancer network and is looking to recruit a Trust Grade Doctor in Breast Surgery to join our team of 5 Oncoplastic Breast Surgeons, 2 Associate Specialists, 2 ST3-8, 2 FY2’s and 2 FY1’s

This trust doctor post is a temporary post fixed term twelve month. The appointee will be expected to work within the team carrying out clinics both symptomatic, screening and family history under supervision and assist in theatre as required.

The department is based in a modern purpose built unit at the Castle Hill Hospital site and is one of the busiest in the country, diagnosing and treating over 500 new breast cancers per year. Within this unit all symptomatic and screening patients are assessed on a multidisciplinary basis. Incorporated within the unit, in addition to the outpatient facilities there are radiology facilities, a meeting room for multidisciplinary team working and office space. All in-patient facilities are based on the Castle Hill site.

Surgery carried out in the department ranges from routine resectional surgery, to major oncoplastic procedures. A wide range of reconstructive and oncoplastic procedures are performed by the breast surgeons, including myocutaneous flaps, therapeutic mammoplasty and mammatome excision; the breast surgeons were among the first in the UK to offer lipomodelling.

Further work such as free flap reconstruction is performed in conjunction with Plastic Surgery colleagues who are based in the same theatres and ward.

The unit has facilities for digital mammography, tomography, ultrasound and mammatome. MR scanning is frequently used in both the diagnostic setting and to assess response to therapy.
