The NIHR/ UCLH Clinical Research Facility (CRF) is an exciting development which opened in February 2009 at University College Hospital. It is a new and developing 18-bedded unit for clinical research with appropriate support facilities, including a laboratory and pharmacy. It houses two linked research facilities and it is envisaged that 100 clinical projects will be completed each year. We are now expanding our nursing team and are looking for a research oncology trained nurse.

Studies will include in-house, national and international phase I, II and III clinical trials and academic studies. Responsibilities will include coordination of care of patients/ participants on trials, collection and preparation of biological samples, collection of trial data, the administration of experimental agents and monitoring of the expected and unexpected side effects of drugs and other treatment modalities. The post holders will work with the clinical teams to ensure the continued care and support for patients involved in clinical trials and attend multi-disciplinary team meetings and appropriate clinics.
Underpinning this clinical research support of patients, the post holders will be responsible for ensuring the regulatory aspects of clinical trials are maintained to GCP standards so a good understanding of the research process is expected.
