Due to team expansion we are in the very fortunate position to be recruiting an additional Lymphoma Clinical Nurse Specialist to our service. This is an exciting opportunity for a dynamic and self-motivated nurse with strong clinical and leadership skills and an interest in developing clinical nurse specialist (CNS) services to join our haematology CNS team as a Lymphoma CNS. This post will provide an excellent opportunity to develop in a CNS role and to develop CNS led services.
The Lymphoma service at UCLH is a large and very busy service which receives many specialist referrals into the practice, making this post extremely varied and interesting. This role is a rare opportunity to work in a service at the cutting edge of new and emerging therapies in Lymphoma care. The service is placed within new and specialist facilities, which continue to develop.
The UCLH Lymphoma service has a large clinical team who work very collaboratively within a supportive environment. Within the team you would be working alongside 10 specialist Medical Consultants, 4 existing Lymphoma CNSs and a Macmillan Cancer Support Worker. You will key work patients within the various clinical areas, including haematology inpatient and outlying wards; and the Macmillan cancer centre. You will be a first point of contact for patients. This will include managing complex interventions for patients; including for those who become unwell or require palliative input. An important feature of this role is liaison with referral units in other hospitals to coordinate care of shared patients. Many of our patients are enrolled on clinical trials or go on to allogeneic stem cell transplantation, as such you will work closely alongside the trials and transplant teams. Some of the patients are young adults and you will also work closely with the TYA service to provide age appropriate support. The post is based in 250 Euston Road within the wider haematology CNS team, medical team and administrative support staff.
The Lymphoma CNS’s run and are further developing CNS clinics, they play a pivotal role in the lymphoma supported self-management pathway. The role is a specialist educational resource, which will be expected to aid the professional development of junior nurses within the department. The Lymphoma team has PA, MDT and data management support.
The haematology CNS team is part of the cancer nursing service at UCLH. We have a regular cancer community of practice forum for clinical nurse specialist staff. We value further education, and actively encourage staff to develop themselves.
The role is a Monday to Friday post but requires some flexibility with working hours.Proposed Interview Date: 12th November 2018For further details / informal visits contact:Informal visits are encouraged and we look forward to hearing from you.
