Professional statement

Dr Jay Naik is an award-winning, locally trained consultant medical oncologist based in Leeds. He specialises in the medical treatment of breast cancer and currently works at Harrogate District Hospital. He has more than 20 years of experience in oncology (cancer medicine), 11 of those as a consultant.

He has a PhD, and is active in research, acting as the local lead on clinical trials.
 
Dr Naik is the clinical director of the West Yorkshire & Harrogate Cancer Alliance Breast Optimal Pathways Group and is very interested in finding ways to meet the serious challenges faced in today’s environment of high volume and complex treatments.

He aims to get to know patients and what matters most to them in order to make the best decisions, about their care with their full involvement. His maxim is ‘compassionate honesty’, meaning that patients always know where they stand and can trust what he says. His core aim is to make the treatment process and aims as understandable as possible and to answer every question that the patient may have. He will formulate a plan with patients to make them feel as secure as possible, knowing that they are being cared for by him and his support team, who want to make the process right for the patient each step of the way.
 
He highly values the positive impact of good communication on the experience of care and has co-facilitated the TARGET & TRUSTING courses devised by Professors Val Jenkins and Lesley Fallowfield, of the SHORE-C group. These courses for breast cancer healthcare professionals aiming to improve understanding and discussion around inherited breast cancers, modern tumour tests, and risk.
 
Dr Naik and his team were nominated for Mid Yorkshire's 'Kate Granger Compassionate Care Award', demonstrating the world class standard of care that they deliver.  They were also shortlisted from 70 nominations from across the Trust, and subsequently won.
