At West Hertfordshire Hospital we deal with cancer every day, so we understand how valuable life is. When people entrust their lives to us, they have the right to demand the very best. That's why the pursuit of excellence lies at the heart of everything we do.

We are seeking an enthusiastic, motivated team player to join our Upper GI cancer Nursing Team. West Hertfordshire Hospital is a specialist center for major Upper GI resections and therefore it is essential to have experience in supporting patients and their families through this pathway, with extensive knowledge of surgery and oncology.

You will have significant oncology and surgical experience in the care of patients with Upper GI/HPB cancers and have an understanding of all treatment modalities associated with these cancers and the complexities involved in caring for this group of patients. You will be working very closely with consultant surgeons, gastroenterologists and oncologists to provide the highest level of support for patients

You will have a clear understanding of the role of the clinical nurse specialist and will also be committed to the development of specialist nursing practice and demonstrate evidence of ongoing professional and academic development.
