"We build great relationships with our patients"

Cancer care is holistic and allows you to build strong therapeutic relationships with patients often over months and even years. 

It’s fair to say that you’ll never be bored working in cancer at CUH. Join us, and you’ll find yourself working in an exciting and evolving service, where every day brings new challenges. As the leading cancer centre for East Anglia,  we treat adult outpatients, day cases and inpatients and have a new, flagship specialist ward and drop in centre for teenagers and young adults from across our region.

Our individual patients are the most important people to us and we are constantly exploring new ways of working to give them the very best treatment.

Many of our cancer treatments are nurse-led, giving you the opportunity to shine, both inside the hospital and in the community. Our chemotherapy in the community service is incredibly popular with those looking for treatment closer to home, who still want the expertise of trained Addenbrooke's nurses.

Our links with the University of Cambridge mean that we have a large research and clinic trials portfolio. CUH contributes around 70% of the patients featured in the West Anglia Cancer Research Network.

We know we can’t deliver cutting edge, patient focused services without a real commitment to our staff. You’ll have access to relevant graduate and postgraduate courses via Anglia Ruskin University as well as in house courses such as chemotherapy administration, management of oncology emergencies and management of stem cell transplantation.

We can offer a range of rotational posts across our specialities including placements on inpatient wards: C10 (Regional BMT unit), D6H (Haematology), D9 (Acute Oncology), C9 (Teenage Cancer Trust Unit), N2 (surgical urology) and day case areas: Oncology Day Unit, Haematology Day Unit and our Cancer Assessment Unit. These posts are aimed at both experienced nurses who are transferring from a different speciality, and those who are newly qualified. You will commit to an 18 month programme rotating through 3 areas each for 6 months.

Whatever your background, we are sure we can offer you something to stimulate and challenge you, working in a division where we can honestly say that no two days are ever the same.
