Applications are sought from suitably qualified Haematologists for the position of Consultant Haematologist at Ballarat Health Services (BHS). This position is located within the Ballarat Regional Integrated Cancer Centre (BRICC) and is available to commence in July 2022. This particular post is available as a response to the growth in the haematology service.
The successful applicant will be an outstanding clinician, demonstrate an exceptional track record as a haematologist and communicator and provide a high-level knowledge of the haematology service where evidence based clinical approaches are fundamental to the delivery of services. The role includes outpatient clinics including support for the day treatment unit, as well as sharing the Monday to Friday ward service role.
The BRICC is located in the Ballarat Base Hospital, the largest regional hospital in the Grampians region. It is the principal referral hospital for the entire region, which extends from Bacchus Marsh on the outskirts of Melbourne to the South Australian border, an area of ~48,000 square kilometres. The BRICC delivers a multi-modality oncology service – from state-of-the-art radiotherapy and chemotherapy (including outreach), comprehensive allied health and supportive care, research and clinical trials to a vibrant Wellness Centre offering a full suite of complementary therapies.
The haematology service is slowly expanding, currently supported by three staff haematologists. The inpatient team is supported by a BPT registrar, with the addition of an HMO to the team in 2021. The service is well supported by the medical oncology team which currently comprises 5 full time and 5 visiting medical oncologists. An expanded medical training program includes an advanced trainee oncology registrar, a clinical oncology Fellow, as well as basic trainee medical registrars and medical residents.
We work closely with the Radiation Oncology Unit (BAROC), Palliative Care (outstanding inpatient palliative care facility “Gandarra”), haematology inpatient services (ward 4 south) and the onsite satellite pharmacy. The oncology unit supports 4 outreach consultation and treatment services at Stawell, Horsham, Maryborough and Hamilton with referrals from these services for haematological conditions.
