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. 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.

In NHS staff survey results, 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”.

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 to five Haematology Wards to become the largest Clinical Haematology & Bone Marrow Transplant Unit in Europe. We are lucky enough to have exceptional teams of nurses and as a result the service has earned a deserved national reputation.

We have vacancies on the Haematology Wards and also places on our accredited UCLH Cancer Rotational Course. We are keen to meet you as we believe we provide a great nursing environment for career development. Why not get in touch and find out what we can do for you?

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.

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.
