Are you looking for a new challenge or change of speciality in your nursing career? An exciting opportunity has arisen to join the Chemotherapy unit at Barnsley as a staff nurse. The Chemotherapy unit at Barnsley is a 6 chaired unit that treats patients with Haematological and solid tumour malignancies.

As a team, we strive to ensure that patients receive high quality care and compassion, building relationships with the patient and their families during their difficult cancer journey, which could span from months to years.

This role will include the administration of systematic anticancer therapy treatment, bloods products and other treatments related to the specialities. The successful applicant will have the opportunity to not only work on the inpatient unit, but to work alongside the wider multidisciplinary team in both specialities. They will be involved in nurse led clinics which will help them develop their role, build their confidence and knowledge base around patient assessment and treatment.

Previous experience in the administration of chemotherapy is desirable but not essential as full training and support will be provided. Newly qualified nurses will be considered dependant on shortlisting and interview.
