Training rotations

Training occurs at Cambridge University Hospital, Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, Southend University Hospital, Colchester Hospital and Ipswich Hospital. Mount Vernon Hospital has also joined the rotation from 2019. Trainees typically rotate to up to three centres within the region during their training, with the deanery split into the following axes for convenience:

  • Northern axis: Cambridge University Hospital, Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, Ipswich Hospital
  • Southern axis: Cambridge University Hospital, Southend University Hospital, Colchester Hospital
  • Western axis: Cambridge University Hospital, Mount Vernon Hospital

There is usually scope for flexibility within this if trainees' needs dictate. Together, the centres offer the latest in radiotherapy techniques, with three dimensional treatment planning, intensity moduled image guided radiotherapy, stereotactic radiotherapy and brachytherapy, as well as a broad experience of systemic therapy for common and rare solid tumours.
