Dr Aisha Miah has spent more than a decade as Consultant Clinical Oncologist at the Sarcoma Unit, The Royal Marsden Hospital and is Honorary Faculty of the Division of Radiotherapy and Imaging at The Institute of Cancer Research, delivering on radiotherapy research studies for sarcoma patients.
Aisha has also led on the delivery of education and training for Specialist Registrars in London and the South-East as Training Programme Director for Clinical Oncology.
From a clinical perspective, she first joined the sarcoma community 10 years ago and quickly learnt the challenges in treating sarcoma and improving knowledge among health care professionals and the public. She represented Sarcoma UK as a member of the Morcellation Task and Finish Group to develop RCOG patient information leaflets and consent advice to raise awareness of uterine sarcomas.
‘It has been a privilege to be part of the community observing how Sarcoma UK has evolved and transformed patients’ lives and professional perception as well as enhancing care through its policies and research programmes.’
‘I would hope to be able to provide some impact in further improving patient experiences and outcomes. While we are working together to help everyone, sometimes we may need to make a little more effort to provide additional support to certain groups.’
