Ward Sister/Charge Nurse - Clinical Haematology Ward - Band 7

This is a great opportunity to work in the largest and most progressive haematology service in Europe with 79, and soon to be 130, acute haematology/BMT inpatient beds. There are two stages to this role as Ward Sister / Charge Nurse.

Stage 1

Currently, the role manages the patient care and haematology nurse staffing of 8 dedicated acute haematology/BMT beds based on a satellite unit on an infectious diseases ward. These are haematology patients admitted for various infective reasons requiring isolation. This satellite unit is integrated into the workings of our 4 other haematology wards and you will work closely with the senior nursing team of Sisters and Matrons.

Stage 2

In Oct 2020 we move the haematology service into a new state of the art dedicated Haematology Hospital. These isolation beds will be then based within a 17 bedded haematology ward of which you will manage.

Who are we looking for?

You will be a dynamic and high calibre nurse with a background and keen interest in clinical haematology. You are likely to be, or aspire to be, an effective leader with a leadership style that enables you to lead a motivated team in a way that generates respect and loyalty. You are likely to be the sort of leader that will put your team first because you understand that patents are highly dependant upon well trained and happy nursing staff. What do you get?

You get job satisfaction from working in a first class nursing team, with good nurse to patient ratios. You will be very well supported in your role and have excellent opportunity for fully funded high level education and training. Your peer group in cancer services is highly functional, friendly and dynamic.
