A new addition to Bermuda Hospitals Board’s cancer care staff will bring decades of experience to Bermuda.

Christopher Price was named as the new consultant medical oncologist by BHB this afternoon.

The addition of Dr Price brings the number of full-time oncologists on staff to three.

Michael Richmond, chief of staff at BHB, said that the organisation was “delighted” to welcome Dr Price.

Dr Richmond added: “The addition of Dr Price to the team is evidence of our commitment to provide treatment locally for our cancer patients.

“We recognise the ability to be at home and close to family and friends is an important aspect of cancer care and it is one that Dr Price has much experience in.”

Dr Price said he had been impressed by both Bermuda’s beauty as well as the “obvious pride of staff in the excellent local health services” during a visit last November.

He added: “The ambition of BHB and the KEMH Oncology Department to offer high-quality cancer care to local residents on the island wherever possible, in partnership with local charities and where appropriate with external institutions in North America, was very clear.

“I was delighted to be given the opportunity to contribute.”

Dr Price served as director of research and development at Worcestershire Acute Hospitals from 2014 to 2018 and clinical service lead for oncology from 2017 to 2018.

He worked the Worcestershire Royal Hospital to help develop a new oncology department in 2014.

He served as director of medical oncology training to the UK’s South West region from 2003 to 2013.

Dr Price was appointed consultant medical oncologist at University Hospitals Bristol in 1995.
