A Special Thank you

About the Role
As an oncology nurse, you will be working at the forefront of our services. This includes providing oncology patients with a range of treatments in the comfort of their own home or in one of our new oncology clinics. You will be seeing patients for bloods, toxicity assessments, IV chemotherapy, oral chemotherapy, pump disconnections, line car, IM/SC injections and more. Our focus is on clinical excellence, so we’ll give you all the support and flexibility you need to spend quality time with your patients and provide them with the best kind of 1-2-1 care. Although you will be working independently in the community, you will remain part of a wider nursing team, enjoying regular contact with managers and colleagues. If you are a registered nurse with oncology training, then this role is for you!
