Are you interested or experienced in Cancer Care nursing?

Then we may have just what you are looking for.

We are seeking a forward thinking and highly skilled ward leader to manage and lead two units. C6 is the Leukaemia and bone marrow transplant unit and C6 TYA is the teenage and young adult unit specialising in all oncological and haematological malignancies.

C6 is a 21 bedded unit caring for patients undergoing intensive chemotherapy for acute leukaemia and autologous and allogeneic transplantation. C6 TYA is a 6 bedded unit caring for 16-24 year olds receiving intensive chemotherapy up to and including autologous transplantation. Both units serve a large catchment area including Hampshire, West Sussex, South Wiltshire, Dorset, Isle of Wight and The Channel Islands.

The successful individual will be a core member of the multidisciplinary team and will be required to develop close working relationships with all members of the team.

We are looking for an individual who has extensive experience in cancer care, particularly in haematology and bone marrow transplantation. They will have leadership experience at a band 6 or 7, will be an expert in administering all types of chemotherapy and will lead a team of dedicated nurses. They will develop their leadership, clinical and management skills, whilst effectively undertaking the day to day coordination of the units.

The nursing teams are at varied stages of their careers, the successful candidate will shape their development through the delivery of an appropriate education programme, role modelling and continued support in clinical practice.

The successful candidate will have a responsibility within the care group to support the whole of cancer care on a rotational basis as a staffing bleep holder, making clinical judgements on staffing levels and the appropriate placement of patients within cancer care. They will be expected to deputise for the care group matrons as needed. In the wider Trust you will be expected to contribute towards the delivery of the Trusts vision of Patients First, Always Improving and Working Together and positively reinforce the cancer nursing vision.

Southampton is a major teaching hospital with strong academic links and a large research facility.

There is a robust and well supported education team which delivers an excellent service to all grades of staff, from preceptorship through to masters level and PhD studies. Leadership programmes are strongly supported.

If you believe you are a skilled, compassionate and dedicated leader we would welcome your application and encourage informal visits to the area.
