You must be an experienced band 5 or band 6 nurse (paediatric or adult) with haematology/oncology experience.

You will be required to demonstrate experience and skills in this area and have leadership, development and organisation skills in order to coordinate safe efficient delivery of care to this patient group.
Our unit is committed to the care of young people going through a difficult time in their lives; we work very closely with the Teenage Cancer Trust ensuring we treat the young person and not just the cancer.
