Basingstoke Training Opportunity

The Peritoneal Malignancy Institute at Basingstoke has offered a fantastic training opportunity for gynaecological oncology subspecialty trainees from all RCOG accredited training centres in the UK to undertake a fixed term, 3-6-month fellowship (paid post).

The successful candidates will join the team of surgeons at this world-renowned centre of excellence in the management of pseudomyxoma peritonei and bowel cancer and will attend theatre sessions, outpatient clinics, MDT meetings and will participate in the daytime management of postoperative patients on the ward and intensive care unit.

This BGCS supported fellowship provides a unique opportunity for the successful candidate to improve skills in peritoneal surgery, colorectal and upper abdominal surgery, perioperative management of complex surgical patients, and setting up and running a peritoneal surgical centre. By the end of the fellowship, the successful candidate is expected to acquire the holistic approach to patients with peritoneal carcinomatosis and to be able to translate this into the management of patients with advanced ovarian cancer. This fellowship carries an opportunity to contribute towards several modules of the gynaecological oncology subspecialty curriculum.

The interviews are held once a year with the aim to fill the next year’s posts in advance. For further information, please contact Mr Tom Cecil at Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospitals NHS Trust ( or Mr Janos Balega on behalf of the BGCS (


Five candidates from training centres in the UK applied and interviewed for the Basingstoke fellowship to improve their training in cytoreductive surgeries. All five candidates submitted outstanding applications and interviewed well. Congratulations to all the five trainees who were granted with 3-month fellowships at the Peritoneal Malignancy Centre in Basingstoke. The next round of interviews will be held in April 2024, notification will be sent to all trainees when the post is advertised.
