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”.

We are seeking highly motivated band 5 nurses with experience to join our Oncology inpatient ward team at UCLH.

At UCLH we provide highly specialised cancer care for oncology patients with a wide range of solid tumours, we are one of two cancer centres in London offering specialised care to sarcoma patients.

• Palliative care including complex symptom management end of life care

What we look for in our nurses:

You will need to have a minimum of 6 months post registration experience within an acute healthcare setting. Oncology or Haematology experience is desirable, but not essential as successful candidates will receive local orientation and ongoing speciality training and support.

What we can offer you:

We aim to provide a service which is tailored to the individuals needs’ as well as ensuring our staff are supported through regular clinical supervision time, educational programmes and on-going professional development.

The area actively supports nurse led activities and research and offers genuine opportunities for professional and personal development.
