Having completed Medical School at The University of Nottingham, Dr Sham has proceeded with Medical Training between the Midlands and later the South. Whilst at Brighton, her interest in Oncology was further encouraged, and later she was successful in gaining a training post in Clinical Oncology. Dr Sham was tremendously fortunate in her Oncology Training and despite spending the majority of which at the Royal Marsden Hospital, she returned “home” to Brighton as a Consultant in 2016.
Since commencing her post as a Consultant, Dr Sham had worked with Breast Cancer patients primarily at Worthing Hospital, offering systemic treatment as well as radiotherapy treatment. Her interest remains improving quality and standards of radiotherapy. Over her tenure, she has rewritten the breast radiotherapy treatment protocol to reflect latest evidence and practice, which led to her post being the co-chair of the Network breast radiotherapy group. Dr Sham has also introduced advanced technique treatment in Breast cancer, utilising the tomotherapy machine at Preston Park to offer breast and nodal radiotherapy to appropriate patients along with her superb radiotherapy colleagues.
Dr Sham is also the Oncology Clinical Audit lead at Sussex Cancer Centre, as well as leading the non-surgical oncology group in Breast Cancer for SCC.
Outside of work, Dr Sham enjoys spending time with her family, supporting her husband’s business and her daughter’s variety of extra-curricular interests.
