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

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.

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.

The NIHR/ UCLH Clinical Research Facility (CRF) is an exciting development which opened in February 2009 at University College Hospital. It is a new and developing 18-bedded unit for clinical research with appropriate support facilities, including a laboratory and pharmacy. It houses two linked research facilities and it is envisaged that 100 clinical projects will be completed each year. We are now expanding our nursing team and are looking for a research oncology trained nurse.

The Research Nurses will work across a number of studies within the Clinical Research Facility (CRF) and will be supported by senior nurses within the unit.

Studies will include in-house, national and international phase I, II and III clinical trials and academic studies. Responsibilities will include coordination of care of patients/ participants on trials, collection and preparation of biological samples, collection of trial data, the administration of experimental agents and monitoring of the expected and unexpected side effects of drugs and other treatment modalities. The post holders will work with the clinical teams to ensure the continued care and support for patients involved in clinical trials and attend multi-disciplinary team meetings and appropriate clinics.

Underpinning this clinical research support of patients, the post holders will be responsible for ensuring the regulatory aspects of clinical trials are maintained to GCP standards so a good understanding of the research process is expected.

A strong nursing background as well as experience and skills in oncology are desirable for this post for maternity cover for a year.

Please note this role’s fixed term contract is for the purpose of covering maternity leave and therefore the end date is subject to change in line with this.
