Lung Cancer Nurse

Posted: 1 week ago

Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

£28,050 - £36,644 pro rat


‘Providing the excellent care that we would expect for our own families’

Join us and help us deliver this vision to more than 500,000 people across Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch. The Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (RBCH) includes Royal Bournemouth Hospital, Christchurch Hospital and a Sterile Services Department at Alderney Hospital.

Here on the south coast we enjoy a great place to live and a friendly and caring place to work. Every day, we value great team work, improving and adapting, communicating well and taking pride in what we do for patients.

This is an exciting time for our staff, following a recent review of healthcare services in Dorset which will see major changes to the way healthcare is provided in our region. As one of the two acute NHS providers in the east of the county, our services will be closely linked to those provided at Poole Hospital. We’re working in close collaboration to deliver excellent emergency and planned care over the two sites, for the people of east Dorset.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a new post to be advertised to join the Lung Cancer Nurse Specialist team in developing and improving the Service we provide for our patients. This post is part of a wider project within the Dorset Cancer Partnership implementing the National Optimal Lung Cancer Pathway and supporting the Early Detection and Diagnosis programme

The post holder will be an ambassador for the Dorset Cancer Partnership (DCP), which was set up in 2016 to bring together all partners involved in the commissioning and delivery of cancer services in Dorset. Members of the DCP include cancer patients and carers, Dorset County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Dorset HealthCare, NHS Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group and voluntary and community sector organisations.

This Role will primarily be based at Royal Bournemouth Hospital but may include some cross cover working within the Dorset area.

The main aim of this role is to support patients and their families throughout the lung cancer pathway, as well as developing new ways of working to ensure Cancer Waiting Time Targets are achieved. Therefore we are looking for an enthusiastic, caring individual who has a passion for Cancer Care. A diverse team-player with excellent communication skills is essential as close working with the dedicated Lung Cancer Multidisciplinary Team is paramount.
