Dr Nick Plowman - Consultant in Clinical Oncology

Dr Nick Plowman is a highly experienced and pioneering cancer specialist with a special interest in developing more effective treatments for cancer with fewer resulting side effects.

Dr Plowman is Head of Clinical Oncology at St Bartholomew's Hospital and Senior Clinical Oncologist to The Hospital for Sick Children Great Ormond Street, London.  He also undertakes visiting duties at two of London's leading specialist hospitals, St Mark's Hospital for colorectal diseases, Harrow and Moorfield's Eye Hospital.

An expert in chemotherapy and radiation therapy for cancer

As a leading authority on the optimal management of cancer, Dr Plowman is an expert on both radiation and drug therapies for all forms of the disease. He is skilled in the latest stereotactic radiotherapy techniques, CyberKnife and GammaKnife, which destroy tumours with a beam of targeted radiation, minimising any damage to surrounding tissues, and is highly experienced in the use of modern external beam conformal radiotherapy machines, which are also associated with fewer side effects than traditional radiotherapy machines. Dr Plowman has a special interest in seed implantation brachytherapy for prostate cancer.

Dr Plowman’s pioneering team at St Bartholomew's Hospital has been responsible for many developments in medical and radiotherapy techniques that are now considered standard practice, such as drug treatments that interrupt adrenal sex steroid production in breast and prostate cancer.  Committed to developing treatments that work more effectively with fewer side effects, Dr Plowman and his team are currently exploring how understanding DNA repair mechanisms can further this aim with regard to chemotherapy.
