Join us and become part of the most engaged workforce of any NHS trust in England, according to the latest national NHS Staff Survey results – for the second year running.

You will be joining a dynamic and forward-looking organisation in the heart of the capital where you can develop your career and broaden your horizons.

We think you will enjoy working for us but you don’t have to take our word for it – 79% of staff who took part in the latest national NHS Staff Survey would recommend Guy’s and St Thomas’ as a place to work.

Are you looking for the next step in your career in Cancer nursing? We are seeking an ambitious and experienced individual to help us further develop our Oncology services at Guys Cancer Centre at London Bridge and Queen Mary's Hospital in Sidcup.

Our dedicated Cancer Centre at Guy’s Hospital opened just over a year ago bringing most of our cancer services together helping us to offer comprehensive care for our patients under one roof. The Cancer Centre has a welcoming environment, designed with patients at its heart and focussing on expert clinical care and research. The centre treats in the region of 6,500 patients with cancer per year and delivers radiotherapy treatments across all of South East London.

In addition a purpose built 'sister' Unit was opened at Queen Mary’s Hospital (QMH) in Sidcup staffed by GSTT employees in order to offer patients care closer to home.

The person we are looking for will have considerable expertise and experience of delivering chemotherapy and will have the competence and confidence to assess patients and manage treatment side effects. You will have a successful track record of advanced practice at senior nursing level and experience of leading change and achieving service improvements against challenging targets. Your leadership style will be collaborative and influential and you will possess the confidence and credibility to take people with you in delivering change. We will develop you and tailor your professional development to meet your career goals as you rotate between Guys Cancer Centre and QMH.

You will be a senior member of the multi-Disciplinary Team supporting the radiotherapy and chemotherapy teams operationally and responding to unwell patients, developing on treat clinics and supporting patients on chemotherapy and radiotherapy pathways.

This position would suit a senior nurse who enjoys a patient facing role coupled with service development, who is passionate about improving treatment pathways and who thrives on team work. The role is 5 days a week.

Non-medical prescribing and advanced assessment skills are essential requirements of this role. If you have one of these, we will support you to attain the other at the earliest opportunity.

Closing Date            22nd July 2018

Interview Date         1st August 2018
