Consultant oncologist appointed by MSG
THE Medical Specialist Group has appointed a new consultant oncologist.
Dr Mohammad Butt will lead the genitourinary and gynecological service in Guernsey as well as looking after breast cancer patients.
He has been working as a consultant medical oncologist in Hull University Teaching Hospital NHS Trust since 2006. His career has also seen the cancer specialist undertake the role of regional lead oncologist for the management of germ cell tumors and principal oncologist for the management of breast cancer for North Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Trust.
In addition, Dr Butt specialises in the management of other urological malignancies such as bladder and prostate with systemic anti-cancer treatment options. His career has also seen him undertake clinical research work.
Dr Gary Yarwood, chairman of the MSG, said: ‘We are very pleased to have Dr Butt joining us. A third oncologist has been needed for a while now, to support a growing and ever more complex service.’
He added: ‘We believe we’ve secured a high calibre oncologist, one who’s sub specialist interests will dovetail nicely with those of Drs Gomes and Manikyam, to the benefit of Guernsey patients.’
