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

We want you to come to UCLH and stay at UCLH because our success starts with you. All of our staff have been involved in developing our values. We believe that they make UCLH 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.

Many of our services operate from new or newly refurbished facilities including the University College Hospital Macmillan Cancer Centre which opened in 2012. So, why join UCLH…?

  • We have a reputation as a centre of clinical excellence
  • Our hospitals are in great central London locations
  • We have new facilities and state-of-the-art medical technology
  • We have a wide range of career opportunities

Based in the busy West End of London, we have a lively and vibrant working atmosphere, with quick and easy transport links to all our sites. Our size and resources enable us to offer a range of attractive benefits as well as unparalleled education and development opportunities for staff at all levels. This includes an extensive portfolio of academic and clinical courses and programmes ranging from ongoing personal development through to clinical excellence and leadership skills. UCLH prides itself on its investment in staff both in terms of developing career skills but also its commitment to staff health and wellbeing.

We have recently expanded our unit to five Haematology Wards and have Band 6 roles with individual development packages for: Band 5 cancer nurses seeking promotion, experienced nurses wanting a speciality change or Band 6 cancer nurses wanting to further develop.

UCLH is really easy to get to with close transport links. We are expanding to become the largest Clinical Haematology & Bone Marrow Transplant Unit in Europe. We are lucky enough to employ exceptional nurses and as a result the service has a deserved national reputation.

If you are a Band 5 Cancer Nurse seeking promotion…
We are interested to meet you as we believe this is a great next step for you to develop your cancer nursing career. Why not find out what we can do for you?

If you currently work in a different speciality at Band 6 but wish to move into Cancer Nursing.

We can provide an individual development package to fast track you through cancer nursing competencies and provide educational courses.

If you are already a Band 6 Cancer Nurse but wish to further develop your career and progress…
The largest haematology unit in Europe is a great place to develop further and to be close to the many opportunities for on-going development and promotion that occur within the nursing services.

A nurse led service at the cutting edge of nursing developments
Our wards are nurse led and are supported by a nursing infrastructure including a dedicated nursing central venous access team, nursing chemotherapy team and a nursing educational team. Not only does this provide our ward nurses with opportunities to develop quickly, it gives them the time to care properly for patients. Our nursing ward ratios are on average 1 nurse to 3 or 4 patients.

A Great Working Environment
Cancer Services at UCLH are based in state of the art facilities. Inpatients are currently located in the modern UCH Tower. Haematology Day-care services are located in a purpose built Cancer Centre that opened in 2014. In 2018 Haematology inpatients transfer to a purpose built Haematology & BMT Inpatient Hospital next door to the Cancer Centre and UCL Cancer Institute – creating a leading cancer campus.
