If you want to work with patients that you have the time to build a relationship with and support through milestones in their care, then you will want to join one of our dedicated Haematology or Oncology teams. We have a number of different wards and departments which you could choose to work within.
Nurses provide the majority of treatments, making them valued by multidisciplinary colleagues and patients alike. Treatments are many and varied and as well as treating with chemotherapy, you will also learn about plasma exchange procedures, stem cell harvesting, administration of clotting factors and how to provide palliative care advice and guidance– so there is a lot of opportunity for clinical development.
Leicester’s Bone Marrow Transplant Unit (BMTU) provides specialist care for patients undergoing bone marrow or stem cell transplants. Day case patients are seen and assessed in a dedicated suite adjacent to the BMTU. Training in all aspects of caring for this speciality will be provided.
Our Haemophilia service specialises in the care of patients with bleeding and clotting disorders. Family testing and on-going support are provided to a range of patients, including pre-pregnancy, rheumatology, orthopaedics and paediatrics.
The Anticoagulation service is integral to UHL offering specialist support to patients from many specialties. The excellent support offered by nurses managing patients in outpatient clinics, during home visits within the city as well as providing an in-reach service for the management of anticoagulation for inpatients is invaluable.
Our dedicated Cancer Trials Facility, The Hope Unit offers patients & nurses opportunities to be involved in a broad portfolio of studies across multiple tumour groups.
