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”.

University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is a major Teaching Hospital and Research Centre with state of the art facilities.

UCLH will be one of two sites delivering Proton Beam Therapy (PBT) across the UK from 2019. The UK service will bring together some of the world’s leading specialists in complex cancers.  Together, the Christie and UCLH will see more children and teenagers with cancer than almost any other centre in the world.

T11 North consists of a 10 bedded inpatient ward and 4 bedded day care area providing care and treatment to children aged 1-12 years with a cancer diagnosis. UCLH is also the regional radiotherapy centre in North London for children. We operate as a unified cancer centre together with Great Ormond Street Hospital and collectively form the largest paediatric/adolescent oncology centre in the country. We are one of only two national centres to have facilities to offer MIBG therapy and radioisotope treatment for paediatric patients.  

As a successful candidate, you will be supported to develop your paediatric oncology skills with both in house and external training opportunities. You will get the opportunity to expand your clinical skills and knowledge through collaborative working within our paediatric division and within our successful MDT.
