Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is one of the largest teaching Trusts in the country. It comprises Addenbrooke’s Hospital and the Rosie Hospital. We provide accessible high-quality healthcare for the local people of Cambridge and regional and national specialist services. It’s a great place to nurse, work and live.

You will work on a vibrant hospital campus with a friendly community feel; we have excellent facilities to practise your skills and abilities to support your career pathway and development. Our values of Together – Safe, Kind, Excellent support the delivery of outstanding care. We have a fully electronic patient record system that is improving health-care quality; this is transforming services, improving patient safety and clinical outcomes.

The Cancer and Haematology Directorate at Addenbrooke’s Hospital provide specialist care and treatment to patients from all over the East Anglia region and beyond. Working in cancer and haematology offers excellent opportunities to develop specialist knowledge and skills, including caring for patients and their families undergoing chemotherapy, radiotherapy, stem cell transplantation and newer targeted treatments, for example immunotherapy. We also care for patients who are receiving symptom control and palliative care, and we pride ourselves in caring for patients and families undergoing the most challenging of times.

Ward C10 is the Regional Bone Marrow Transplant Unit. Patients undergo autologous and allogeneic stem cell transplantation and receive complex treatments for their disease and the side effects of treatment. We have an exciting opportunity for a new Senior Sister/Charge Nurse.

In return we can offer you the support you need to thrive in this role, which is pivotal in maintaining patient safety and positive patient experience, alongside the experience of leading a team working with fast paced critically ill patients.
