Sister / Charge Nurse Royal Marsden Macmillan Hotline (RMMH)Telephone Triage service
Location – Chelsea
Band 7, permanent

If you are an oncology or acute care nurse with excellent communication skills who enjoys working both independently and as part of a team assessing patients and providing them with appropriate support and advice and are keen to develop your leadership skills then this could be the role for you.

We currently have an exciting new opportunity for a dynamic, highly motivated, innovative individual to join our Royal Marsden Macmillan Hotline (RMMH) team as a Band 7 Sister / Charge Nurse based in Chelsea.  

In collaboration with Macmillan, the Royal Marsden Macmillan Hotline (RMMH) was established just over a year ago and has proven a highly a highly successful initiative enabling all of our patients to have a central access point into the hospital for specialist advice on the management of their side effects and complications of cancer and its treatment as well as providing access to other information and signposting 24 hours a day, 365 days per year. The RMMH also provides an advice helpline service to our patient’s carers / relatives and other healthcare professionals. 

Ideally, the successful candidate will have a minimum of 2 years oncology or acute care with excellent communication skills who enjoys working and leading in a team assessing patients over the telephone and providing them with appropriate support and advice. The role requires flexibility and a healthy approach to change as the work load, staff turnover and acuity levels are unpredictable and challenging at times.  It is a good opportunity for an individual seeking to develop their clinical leadership experience and acquire/develop acute oncology and service development skills. It requires someone who is resilient with excellent communication and collaboration skills.

You will work with support from the Lead Nurse/ Project Manager for the RMMH, the Matron for the RMMH and the Clinical Assessment Unit (CAU) and the CAU Sister.

The successful post-holder will be an experienced nurse with sound acute care skills and leadership qualities. In return for your commitment in the role and depending on your experience, you will have access to specific training including symptom control management, cancer and acute care modules and physical assessment. You will also have support from and access to training provided by Macmillan and will be a part of their nursing network.

An informal visit is recommended if shortlisted for interview – we look forward to hearing from you!
