Dr Nigel Marchbank



I trained at Guy’s Hospital, qualifying in 1987. After junior posts in Brighton, Birmingham and Worcester I started Radiology training on the St George’s Hospital rotation in London in 1991. I trained at many centres of excellence including the Royal Marsden Hospital, Great Ormond Street Hospital and the Royal Brompton Hospital.

I was appointed as a Consultant in 1997, and moved my practice to Brighton in 2008. As well as leading the Chest Imaging department, I am also heavily involved in providing Imaging support to patients in many Cancer Research trials. I am also Director of the Sussex Tumour Ablation Centre.

In April 2003, I was appointed as Medical Director of the Sussex Cancer Network, an organisation that coordinates planning and delivery of cancer services across Sussex.

I sit on many committees including the Cancer Advisory Board, responsible for planning and delivering cancer services nationally. In 2008, I was an advisor to the Swedish government when they wrote their Cancer Plan.
