Colorectal Cancer Pathway Nurse - Band 7

We are seeking a motivated and dynamic nurse to join our colorectal Team. We have received Cancer alliance funding for 1 year to appoint to a Colorectal Cancer Pathway Nurse. This exciting opportunity aims to facilitate faster diagnosis for patients on a 28 day pathway, providing care and support for patients on suspected cancer pathways. We are seeking a unique individual who can work alongside our nursing and medical colleagues in surgery and oncology. The post will require cross site working and support tertiary referrals.

The Trust has an excellent reputation and serves a catchment population of around 380,000. Cancer patients are supported from the diagnostic phase of their cancer experience through to living with and beyond cancer.

The successful applicant will be required to demonstrate an understanding of the specific needs and expectations of this group of patients. You will be working very closely with the Trust’s cancer services team to provide the highest level of support for patients.

You will have a clear understanding of the surgical nursing, cancer pathways, and be committed to improving patient experience. You will also be committed to the development of specialist nursing practice and demonstrate evidence of ongoing professional and academic development. A successful appointment will depend upon interview and fulfilling service requirements.
