King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is one of the UK’s largest and busiest teaching Trusts with a turnover of c£1 billion, 1.5 million patient contacts a year and more than 12,800 staff based across 5 main sites in South East London. The Trust provides a full range of local hospital services across its different sites, and specialist services from King’s College Hospital (KCH) sites at Denmark Hill in Camberwell and at the Princess Royal University Hospital (PRUH) site in the London Borough of Bromley.
An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic Band 6 Staff Nurse to join our friendly team on the Chemotherapy Day Unit at King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and build on developing further chemotherapy skills. The Chemotherapy Day unit cares for patients receiving chemotherapy treatments for both solid breast 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 or outpatient 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. 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. As a Haematology Cancer Centre, we have ongoing trials and research is integral to our everyday practice here at King’s College Hospital Foundation Trust. We work closely with the Trials team and we use the MOSAIQ system for chemotherapy prescribing, recording all chemotherapy assessment and Pre-Chemotherapy Consultations. We offer educational opportunities though our established links with King’s College London and The Cancer Academy at Guys and St. Thomas’s Cancer Centre.
