Are you a Band 5 or a band 6 who would like to progress in your career? An exciting opportunity has arisen for 2 Band 6 staff nurses to join our friendly and energetic team on Ellis Ward. 

Ellis ward is a 14 bed adult female surgical ward, predominantly caring for patients undergoing treatment for breast and gynaecological cancers as well as other specialities including gastrointestinal and urological. We also care for patients having chemotherapy, radiotherapy and patients requiring symptom control as part of their treatment.

The successful candidate will have excellent interpersonal and clinical skills and enjoy working as part of a team. You will be required to assume responsibility for co-ordinating shifts on a regular basis and to be proactive in identifying areas to improve the patient experience and quality of nursing care. We can offer you a supernumerary period designed to explore all that the ward has to offer, time allocated with members of the MDTs. We provide a tailor made programme to introduce you to the ward. Although oncology experience is desirable, we provide training via a dedicated Practice Educator in order for you to develop your oncology knowledge in addition to developing your leadership and ward management skills. We offer opportunities for further education with the Royal Marsden School.

Our ward commitment is to meet the Trust’s goals of excellence in caring for our patients, their families and friends with professionalism, respect and dignity. We are an inclusive team and would welcome your application.
