This is an exciting opportunity to join our existing Oncology Clinical Nurse (CNS) specialist team.  These are 2 newly funded posts, supported for 2 years initially with Cancer Alliance funding to support the capacity required for new and on-treatment Oncology patients. You will be working alongside our Oncology consultant team to support patients receiving treatment for oncological conditions.  This role is a  new role and will require a high level of independent working including clinical review of newly diagnosed  patients within a defined patient pathway.  This role will also support the existing Band 6 and Band7 CNS teams in these Oncology specialities.  There are two Band 8A roles available, one supporting lung and upper GI patients within the Oncology department, and the other supporting uro-Oncology patients within the Oncology department




The main job role will involve review of Oncology patients in these specialities in the outpatient department.  This may involve review of newly diagnosed patients according to a patient pathway, or review of those on treatment for their cancer.  There will be a requirement for the individual to undertake physical examination of patients and prescribing as part of their daily work and we will support training for this if the successful applicant does not already have these qualifications.  The role is currently based at The Royal Shrewsbury Hospital but there may be a requirement for cross site working in the future.
