Consultant Oncologist Dr Alfredo Addeo is hoping to provide specialist care to patients with the above forms of cancer.
He said: “The team at Lincoln County Hospital is extremely dedicated and works closely as a unit to be able to offer the best patient care.
“I find it encouraging to see the very positive level of service and care provided by the oncology department staff.
“I am glad to be able to contribute to this in my new role,” he added.
