About us

The Royal College of Surgeons (RCSeng) is one of the best known professional membership organisations in the world, with a name and reputation that speak for excellence in the UK and across the globe. We provide education, assessment and development to nearly 30,000 surgeons, dental surgeons and members of the wider surgical and dental teams at all stages of their career; we set professional standards, facilitate research and champion world-class surgical outcomes for patients.

About the role

We are seeking a clinician to join the National Oesophago-Gastric Cancer Audit (NOGCA). The audit evaluates the process of care and outcomes for people diagnosed with oesophago-gastric (OG) cancer and treated in NHS hospitals within England and Wales. The audit strives to raise standards across all NHS hospitals for patients with OG cancer by highlighting where cancer care is good, and identifying areas for improvement.

The candidate will support further development of the Audit, undertake data analysis, and produce reports as well as other outputs including conference presentations and peer-reviewed publications. There is also the opportunity to undertake an MD/PhD thesis, supervised by senior members of the NOGCA team. This work will also benefit from the expertise available in the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), an internationally renowned centre for health services research.

The fellowship will be based in The Clinical Effectiveness Unit (CEU), a joint unit of the Royal College of Surgeons and LSHTM. The CEU delivers a number of national clinical audits, undertakes research to improve evaluation methods and produces evidence on clinical and cost-effectiveness of surgical procedures. Although the post is based in London, there are possibilities for remote working with regular visits to the CEU.

The candidate should have clinical experience (ST1-ST5) in a relevant discipline (Upper GI Surgery, Oncology, Gastroenterology) and have passed a Membership / Fellowship exam of a relevant Royal College. Excellent verbal and written communication skills and good organisational abilities are essential. Research experience is an advantage but training in research methods and statistical analysis will be provided.

There will be no clinical duties or on-call commitments.

Candidates who are invited for interview will be asked to give a short presentation demonstrating their relevant expertise and skills.
