MBChB, FRCP, DRCOG, Dip Onc
I am a Consultant Medical Oncologist with expertise in Breast cancer, and Colorectal cancer. I have a special interest in the treatment of advanced (metastatic) cancer and the treatment of secondary liver tumours with targeted liver therapies such as Selective Internal Radiation Therapy (SIRT), DC Beads and ChemoSat (all available via LOC/Harley Street Clinic.)
I see private patients at The Christie Clinic in Manchester, The Alexandra Hospital in Cheadle and the LOC and Harley Street Clinic in London. My NHS base is The Christie in Manchester, the biggest Cancer Centre in the UK.
I graduated in Medicine from the University of Glasgow in 1988 and after working as a junior doctor in the UK, spent four years in Australia, firstly in General Medicine and then at advanced trainee level in Medical and Radiation Oncology in Sydney. After returning to the United Kingdom, I completed Specialist Training in Medical Oncology at St James’s University Hospital in Leeds. I was appointed to the post of Consultant Medical Oncologist at The Christie Hospital, Manchester in 2002.
I set up and am Lead Clinician for the SIRT service for liver tumours at The Christie. Since its inception in 2005, the service has grown into the biggest NHS/private SIRT service in the UK. I am a leading researcher in SIRT.
As a senior member of the Breast and Colorectal Cancer Groups, I am principal investigator in national and international trials at The Christie. I am also an educational supervisor within the junior doctor programme and a lecturer in the undergraduate and postgraduate teaching programmes through the University of Manchester and The Christie NHS Trust.
I am a member of ASCO, ESMO and am active in social media on twitter (@uk_oncologist) and am on the European Society of Medical Oncology Social Media committee and believes in personalized care for individual patients and their needs. More information can be found on my website drgregwilson.co.uk.
