Dr Olly Donnelly
PhD FRCR MRCP BSc (Hons)
I am a consultant oncologist specialising in; head and neck cancers, melanoma and skin cancers.
I trained in medicine in Bristol and Devon before moving to Leeds in 2007 to undertake specialist oncology and academic training at St James’ University Hospital. During that period, as well as achieving FRCR, I completed a PhD in tumour immunology, researching novel immunotherapies and I spent a year at the Mayo Clinic, Mn USA.
I'm now a full-time clinician but maintain an interest in cancer research and clinical trials and medical education.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Olly Donnelly at Spire include:
