Want to join a pioneering healthcare business? Take your career to new places? Transform lives? You can do it all with LloydsPharmacy Clinical Homecare. Part of McKesson, a leading global healthcare company, we work in close partnership with the NHS and pharmaceutical companies to provide a huge range of care services to more than 80,000 patients in the comfort of their own home, at their place of work or in the community.

About the opportunity

What kind of nurse do you really want to be? A relationship builder. A quality carer. A healthcare pioneer. A valued specialist with continuous opportunities for training and professional growth. Join LloydsPharmacy Clinical Homecare as a qualified Oncology Nurse and you can be all these things and more.

Part of McKesson, a leading healthcare company, we work in close partnership with the NHS and pharmaceutical companies to provide a huge range of care services to more than 80,000 patients in the comfort of their own home, at their place of work or in the community. You will be working at the forefront of these services, providing oncology patients with a range of treatments in their own homes or in one of our state-of-the-art treatment clinics. This will involve seeing patients for bloods, toxicity assessments, IV chemotherapy, oral chemotherapy, pump disconnections, line care, IM/SC injections and more.

The focus is on clinical excellence, so we’ll give you all the support and flexibility you need to spend quality time with your patients and provide them with the best kind of 1-2-1 care. We’ll also make sure you remain at the cutting edge of your profession, gaining exposure to new technologies and therapies, and helping to develop care models that break the mould. Although you will be working independently in the community, you will remain very much part of a wider nursing team, enjoying regular contact with managers and colleagues.

About you

You have to be well-organised to succeed in this role, as you will be responsible for managing your own workload and itinerary as well as for providing patients with the kind of day-to-day care that will help them achieve their goals and regain their independence. You’ll be travelling between patients throughout the day, as well as working at our state-of-the-art mobile units, so a full UK driving licence is essential. Other must-haves include a valid NMC PIN and at least 12 months’ post-registration experience, ideally within an acute setting, along with basic IT skills and a commitment to continuous professional development. Experience and training in a specialist Oncology position is a must for this role.

In return for your hard work, we offer excellent training, support and career development plus the opportunity to work at the forefront of our industry, helping to reshape healthcare for the better and make a real difference to patients’ lives. You will also enjoy a comprehensive benefits package including:

  • Company pension scheme
  • Generous annual leave
  • Heavily discounted healthcare
  • Childcare voucher scheme
  • Discounts at hundreds of retail stores
