Professional profile

Dr Savage completed my medical training in Bristol and then undertook a PhD with the ICRF in London looking at experimental immunotherapy. Following this he trained in general medicine in London and then completed specialist training in Medical Oncology at the Royal Marsden, Hammersmith and Charing Cross Hospitals. Initially appointed as a Consultant Oncologist in Cardiff in 1998, he returned to Charing Cross Hospital in London in 2004 to help run the UK National Trophoblast Tumour service. Whilst working there Dr Savage was also the lead clinician for testicular cancer, urology oncology, chemotherapy and acute oncology for the Imperial Hospitals and West London Cancer Network.

Following a recent sabbatical in Canada working for the BCCA in British Columbia, Dr Savage returned to the UK now combining clinical practice in Brighton and Haywards Heath with ongoing laboratory research in cancer immunotherapy, cancer gene therapy and basic cancer biology.

Dr Savage has published over 120 papers on cancer research and clinical practice, holds a number of cancer related patients and works closely with the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries in cancer therapeutics.

Over the years Dr Savage has gained extensive practical experience in urology oncology and gynaecology oncology and would be delighted to help in the care of patients with these diagnoses. He am also happy to see patients with rare tumours or other cancer types.
