Senior pre- and post-CCT colorectal trainees looking for experience in the management of rectal cancer, anal cancer, and surgery for advanced or recurrent malignancies prior to applying for a consultant post are encouraged to apply. Cytoreductive surgery and HIPEC is now very relevant to the management of patients with colorectal peritoneal metastases and the successful candidates will have asignificant advantage of having obtained this experience prior to applying for a consultant post. Please see the link below for further information on how to apply.
