Specialist BMS – Haematology, Band 6

The Royal Marsden NHS Trust is the largest comprehensive cancer centre in Europe with a national and international reputation for high quality patient care, research & development and education. It is situated on 2 sites; one in Central London and one at Sutton in Surrey.

Within the Blood Sciences department the cross-discipline training of all Band 6 BMSs is being commenced. We are also embarking on a significant procurement campaign to replace all the major analytical platforms in both Biochemistry and Haematology over the next 2 years. The Blood Sciences laboratories have achieved accreditation by UKAS under ISO15189.

There is now a vacancy for a suitably qualified, experienced Haematology and Transfusion BMS to be based at our Chelsea site. Previous experience and competence also in Biochemistry would be an advantage. The successful candidate will be expected to participate in the On-Call rota after suitable training, single discipline initially with a view to covering Biochemistry also eventually. This is currently paid under a sessional rate agreement with recovery time, complying with the European Work Time Directive. The department encourages and supports further education and personal development.
