Profile of Dr Antonia Creak
Dr Creak qualified in 1995 from Charing Cross and Westminster medical school. After completing her general medical training she commenced her training in oncology in 1999. Initially based at Charing Cross Hospital, she later moved to the Royal Surrey County Hospital in Guildford and then the Royal Marsden Hospital to work in the Academic Urology Unit where she undertook research in prostate cancer whilst gaining further experience of innovative radiotherapy techniques.
Now specialising in the oncological management of brain and spinal cord tumours, Dr Creak uses both chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatments. She is the lead clinician for the Brighton Neuro-oncology Cancer Network multidisciplinary team and Co-chair of the Sussex Cancer network Neuro-oncology tumour group.
Dr Creak also specialises in Acute Oncology, managing all cancer patients admitted with complications of their disease or treatment as well as investigating and managing patients admitted to hospital with a new diagnosis of suspected cancer or 'Cancer of Unknown Primary'.
Dr Creak firmly believes that good communication between doctor and patient is key, and goes a long way to help relieve some of the inevitable stress that a cancer diagnosis can bring.
