This is an exciting opportunity to join a first class team within an Oncoplastic Centre. The Trust delivers care of the highest quality to the women of Devon and beyond and is one of only 9 UK sites that host a National Oncoplastic Fellow. This sought after opportunity arises due to an imminent consultant retirement and an increase in referrals and demands for oncoplastic and reconstructive surgery.
Foundation status was awarded in 2004 and this has allowed greater freedom to work more closely with patients, carers and members of the local community to design and develop services that meet the needs of the people who use our hospital. The Trust has a strong track record of providing excellent patient care, financial delivery and staff satisfaction in the region.
The Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust is a first-wave Foundation Trust that serves a population of 360,000 people from NHS Devon, with some specialist services serving in excess of 450,000.

The University of Exeter Medical School affords exciting opportunities to participate in both undergraduate teaching and research. The historic cathedral city of Exeter is situated in the middle of the South West Region with easy access to the countryside and coast of Devon and Cornwall. It is well served by rail, road and air links.
