Publisher: RCR, London : 2023.Description: 43p.Summary: This is the 15th annual RCR clinical oncology census report - presenting a comprehensive picture of the clinical oncology workforce as it stood in October 2022. Once again, we have secured a 100 per cent response rate, enabling us to speak decisively about the state of the oncology workforce across the UK. Patient care has been notably impacted by shortages in the clinical oncology workforce. In almost all UK cancer centres (97 per cent), patients’ treatment was delayed because of staff shortages. In one in two cancer centres, delays were happening in most months or every month. The UK has a 15 per cent shortfall of clinical oncologists – 175 additional doctors are needed to deliver safe and effective patient care. By 2027, it is projected that the shortfall will rise to 25 per cent. Across the UK, there is a 7 per cent vacancy rate of clinical oncologists. 54 per cent of these vacancies have been open for over a year..Subject(s): oncologists | cancer services | workforce | staff shortage | financing | staff levels | future trends | NHS | medical consultants | recruitment | audit | censuses | statistical data
