Summary Chemotherapy Staff Nurse Band 5 Day Treatment Unit, Cancer Centre, Churchill Hospital, Oxford The role of a chemotherapy nurse is to provide care for cancer patients receiving chemotherapy or one of the new treatments (eg: immunotherapies) and is a challenging and rewarding field in nursing. We in the Cancer & Haematology Day Treatment Unit (DTU) are looking to recruit nurses who are kind, committed, motivated and forward thinking to complement our team in achieving the best care for our patients receiving these treatments. The DTU is open Monday - Friday: 8am-7pm and Saturday: 8am-4pm. Training and support to progress through competency learning packages for cannulation & venepuncture and care of patients with central venous access devices, along with obtaining a qualification in 'Caring for a Patient Receiving Chemotherapy' is provided.
