At UCLH (University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust) our success starts with you.

We want you to come to UCLH, and stay at UCLH; all of our staff have been involved in developing our values.

We believe that UCLH is a better place for patients and staff alike. This is an exciting opportunity to join one of the largest and most successful Foundation Trusts in the UK with an international reputation and a tradition of innovation.

UCLH has two major strategic projects underway. On Grafton Way, we are building a facility which will be home to one of only two high energy NHS proton beam therapy centres, Europe’s largest centre for the treatment of blood disorders and a hyper modern surgery service.  Close by on Huntley Street we are developing the new Royal National ENT and Eastman Dental Hospitals. Replacing the current hospitals on Grays’ Inn Road, this development will mean we can provide multidisciplinary care to our dental and ENT patients in a modern environment. Our Grafton Way facility is due to open in 2020, with Huntley Street opening in 2019.

NHS staff survey results from 2016, UCLH has been named one of the ten best performing non-specialist trusts against the following statement: “If a friend of relative needed treatment I would be happy with the standard of care provided by this organisation”.

Band 7 Research Nurse Upper GI

We are looking to recruit a senior research clinical nurse into our newly created post, to work in the Upper Gastrointestinal and Endoscopy Research team at UCLH.  

The post will involve working on a number of novel and exciting trials such as the REVITA trial on duodenal mucosal resurfacing in the treatment of Type 2 Diabetes in collaboration with the multi-disciplinary team.  This ground-breaking multi-centre trial extends the therapeutic use of endoscopy to manage diseases including Type 2 Diabetes and Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease and is being spearheaded by UCL in the UK.  Other trials that the post holder will be involved in are recruiting patients for Endoscopic Cryoablation for early oesophageal cancer – a new treatment modality being trialled at only UCH at present and novel diagnostic modalities for early cancer.

The post will involve working with the current research fellow in expanding the trial into its randomised phase, and the ongoing follow up of patients already recruited into the trial.

Responsibilities will include helping to screen and recruit patients, co-ordinating the care of patients on trials, collection and preparation of samples and collection of trial data, working closely with the radiology department and the clinical research facility team.
