Dr Madhumita Bhattacharyya
BSc, MBBS, FRCP, PhD
I graduated from Barts and the London School of Medicine in 1998 and completed my junior medical training in London, which included Oncology posts at Barts and the Royal Marsden Hospitals.
Having started my Medical Oncology training at Barts, before undertaking a PhD in Molecular Oncology, I completed my training in Wessex. I was appointed as a Consultant in Reading at the Royal Berkshire Hospital in January 2012.
I specialise in the treatment of melanoma, breast and ovarian cancers with systemic treatments. I am also the Acute Oncology lead for the Thames Valley and the Royal Berkshire Hospitals.
I have an interest in the education of those in the medical profession and am educational supervisor for medical trainees at the Royal Berkshire Hospital.
I am keen for my patients to have access to clinical trials and am principal investigator on trials in ovarian and breast cancers.
