Vacancies that threaten to leave NHS Tayside with no breast cancer oncology specialists from June have not yet been filled, the health board has said.

The health board then revealed the oncologist who delivers the advanced breast oncology service, who was recruited in August last year, has handed in their notice and plans to leave in June.

The health board said “all recruitment opportunities” were being pursued, supported by the Scottish Government, but no posts had yet been filled, amid a nationwide shortage of doctors qualified in this area.
