Staff Nurse - Haematology / Bone Marrow Transplantation – Band 5 Haematology Wards

Haematology is a great specialty to nurse in, providing everything from acute care, chronic care, palliative care and nurse-care! We really understand that to retain our excellent staff we must provide a positive working culture, safe staffing levels that enable you to do your job well, supported professional & academic development and supported social events! These aren’t empty words. This is our unit for real, our team and we are proud of it.

It also happens to be the largest most progressive haematology service in the country with 100 dedicated haematology inpatient beds. A dedicated Cancer Centre for daycare and ambulatory care patients and a haematology clinical trials team, so lots of future directions in which your career can build from the ward speciality. Next year our bed base expands to 130 when we move the service into its own state of the art dedicated Haematology Hospital Building.

Our haematology wards are nurse-led and are supported by a nursing infrastructure including dedicated education, central venous access and chemotherapy teams. Not only does this provide our ward nurses with opportunities to develop their skills and qualifications, it gives them the time to care properly for patients and feel job satisfaction. Our nursing ward ratios are on average 1 nurse to 3 or 4 patients.

Whether you are a newly qualified nurse seeking a safe and challenging place to begin your career or have experience in a different speciality, or are haematology nurse already – we would love to meet you. Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or would like an informal tour of the service.
