If you have cancer nursing or skin cancer nursing experience and are looking for a new challenge in your career then read on. We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and motivated nurse to join our skin cancer CNS team in the substantive role of a 0.6 WTE (22.5 hours per week) Clinical Nurse Specialist.

North Bristol NHS Trust has a large plastic surgery and skin cancer service and you will be working in a busy team of four cancer clinical nurse specialists as an important and highly valued member of the skin cancer Multidisciplinary Cancer Team.

The post holder will work collaboratively with a range of health care providers in the local community and across the regional Network. The role involves managing and maintaining a caseload of skin cancer patients, undertaking nurse-led clinics: face to face, telephone and follow-up of patients. A responsibility of the role will be to provide specialist information, support, advice and education to the patient and their family (in-patients and out-patients) from diagnosis and throughout the whole cancer pathway on treatment/management of their cancer.

This job offers a great opportunity to be in a leading role delivering high quality care and support to cancer patients and their families and helping to develop and expand our skin cancer service.
