A Special Thank you

Before we start to find out if we’re a good fit, we just wanted to say thank you. Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, those working in Healthcare across the UK stood up to the plate and helped to protect the country and for that, we will always be grateful.

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!

About You

To succeed in this role, you will be an experienced nurse with a valid NMC PIN and a formal oncology qualification, SACT passport or inhouse oncology training to administer systemic anti-cancer therapy (including cannulation and venepuncture competency and experience of administering all routes of anti-cancer therapy). You will display a high level of care and empathy to help our patients achieve their goals and regain their independence. You will be well-organised and comfortable managing your own workload and itinerary, basic IT skills are required. In addition, when you’re not in the clinic, you’ll be required to travel between patients, so a full UK driving license is essential.
