Summary OXFORD UNIVERSITY HOSPITALS NHS FOUNDATION TRUST RADIOTHERAPY PHYSICS GROUP Principal Radiotherapy Physicist, Band 8A We are looking to recruit an experienced radiotherapy physicist, to take a leading role at the Great Western Hospital (GWH) satellite unit in Swindon. Building of the satellite unit starts in Spring 2020 and is planned to open in Spring/Summer 2021. The new centre will have two Varian TrueBeam linacs plus a CT planning suite, with close ties to the host centre in Oxford. Varian Eclipse TPS will be accessed through Framework Servers. The successful candidate should be HCPC registered, and able to fulfil the role of MPE in radiotherapy. We are looking to recruit to this post now as a linac replacement programme will be underway in Oxford in 2020, so the postholder will also take a leading role in the linac commissioning programme at the host centre.

Also we have implemented SRS/SRT with ExacTrac imaging, SABR under CtE, breath-hold, MIRADA auto-contouring and transmission dosimetry. Planned developments include breast IMRT, adaptive radiation therapy based on in-treatment imaging, procurement and testing of a 3D printer, introduction of new treatment planning algorithms and development of MIRADA AI-based contouring.
