An exciting opportunity has arisen for experienced and enthusiastic Band 6 Senior Staff Nurse to join our friendly team on the Chemotherapy Day Unit at Kings College Hospital. The Chemotherapy Day unit cares for patients receiving chemotherapy treatments for both solid tumours and Haematological cancers, thus affording the opportunity to experience caring for these two unique groups of patients.

You will need to display excellent communication skills, and offer care in a kind and compassionate manner. You will need to have experience in caring for cancer patients in an inpatient setting and have accreditation in the administration of cytotoxic medications.

The post will offer you the support of a patient focused dynamic team in which you will be encouraged to develop your knowledge and skills in cancer nursing. We run a nurse led PICC line service and are developing several nurse led clinics, with the opportunity to develop our current service.

The unit works in close collaboration with the Acute Oncology Team which requires liaising with Clinical Nurse Specialist‘s working in partnership in caring for the acutely unwell patient. Ongoing research is integral to our everyday practice here at Kings College Hospital and we are about to embark on an exciting trial using modern technology to track patients side effects of treatments.

We offer educational opportunities though our established links with Kings College London and The Royal Marsden.
