If you have significant experience in oncology/haematology/chemotherapy nursing, it’s your chance to join a world-class team and help provide exceptional healthcare for patients from across the UK and beyond.

The role of the Staff Nurse will see you arranging and implementing individualised care plans for our patients. That will mean undertaking a variety of oncology interventions, closely monitoring patients and maintaining accurate records. You’ll need excellent time management skills, as well as the ability to plan and prioritise care effectively.

As well as meeting individual care plans, you will ensure we maintain a welcoming environment for the families of patients.
