Some of the principal treatments carried out by Professor Saad Tahir at Spire include:
I started as a Medical House Officer, at the teaching hospital in Baghdad for General Medicine, Surgery, gynaecology and military service. In 1979, I was part of ‘The Institute of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine’ in Baghdad and in 1981 moved to the UK and started at the Middlesex hospital, London.
With a few years under my belt in some London based hospital, I moved back to Baghdad and became a Clinical Oncologist at ‘The Institute of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine’ in Baghdad. At the same time, I became a Senior Lecturer at Al-Mustansria University, College of Medicine and was an Associate Professor in Clinical Oncology, at the Saddam Colleges of Medicine in Baghdad.
In January 1994, my career took me to Al-Bashir Hospital in Amman, where I became a Consultant in Oncology before taking the step to move back to the UK to further my career. From 1994 through to 1997, I worked in Oncology at St Luke’s & Royal Surrey Hospital in Guildford before making the decision to move to Colchester in January 1997 where I stayed until 2004. I have been a Consultant Oncologist (Medical Oncology and Radiotherapy) at the Mid Essex Trust and have worked in Chelmsford from 2004 to date where I have led and supervised the chemotherapy team for 14 years.
I have participated as Principal Investigator in more than 50 clinical trials which have set the basis of modern medical and radiation oncology practice, mostly GI, Gynaecology and Urology Oncology but also lung cancer and melanoma. I am visiting Professor to Anglia Ruskin University Postgraduate Medical Centre and helped the formation of Anglia Ruskin Clinical Trial Unit.
