An excellent opportunity has arisen for a band 6 staff nurse to join our Private patients Outpatient unit at the Royal Marsden Hospital in Fulham Road, Chelsea. The patients that attend clinics come from a wide variety of cultural and ethnic backgrounds. These patients may be receiving chemotherapy, surgery or attending for palliative care input.

We strive to deliver the highest quality of care to this patient population in a relaxed environment and are a dedicated, professional, and friendly team who would welcome an experienced, enthusiastic, compassionate and motivated nurse to join us.

We are committed to teaching and supporting staff and are looking for these qualities in a new team member. Willingness to undertake training in venepuncture and cannulation, and in managing patients with altered airways is an essential part of the role. The post requires an ability to work flexibly during the week, as well as Saturdays where required, to be able to deliver care to the highest standards.

The post holder will need to be able to care for a group of patients with a variety of needs, assist in the daily running of clinics on the unit and communicate with the wider multidisciplinary and administrative teams. The role will also involve include liaising with the unit manager to assist in the daily management of the unit, rostering of shifts, helping to set up new clinics, ensuring practice is evidence based, mentoring and providing a role model for junior staff and the coordination of clinics and the unit.

The successful applicant will be supported to develop the competencies required and will have opportunities for further development at the Royal Marsden School based on the Chelsea site.
