UK’s largest Cancer Centres set to expand team at Open Day

One of the UK’s largest cancer centres is holding an Open Day for various roles within the Oncology Department on Saturday 5th March 2016.

The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is growing its services to meet the needs of our patients and in order to fulfil our mission of providing high quality care. The open day is looking for Radiographers, Clinical scientists, Registered Nurses and future Oncologists to join the award winning team.

Mark Gilham, NNUH Head of Radiotherapy said: “At NNUH, we are very fortunate to be leaders in the diagnosis, treatment and research of cancer and see more than 4,000 new patients each year. Our radiotherapy department alone delivers more than 40,000 treatments a year through a variety of up-to-date methods including Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy, RapidArc, Stereotactic Ablative Radiotherapy and Image Guided Radiotherapy. As the demand for radiotherapy grows we need to increase the team ensuring we continue to deliver high quality patient care.”

The oncology department has recently benefited from a new radiotherapy building; the Winterton Unit which has increased the world class radiotherapy treatment capacity by a third over the next five years. Planning permission has also been accepted to increase the capacity of the Weybourne Day Unit, NNUH’s nurse-led oncology and haematology service. The expansion will increase the capacity by another 10 bays on top of the existing 14 bays in response to a recent increase in demand as well as a predicted national increase as identified in the hospital’s 10 year review. A successful fundraising appeal has allowed NNUH to plan state-of-the-art facilities for people undergoing internal radiotherapy, known as high dose rate (HDR) brachytherapy. Once installed, NNUH will be one of only a handful of hospital Trusts in the country offering HDR prostate brachytherapy.

Jeremy Over, NNUH Director of Workforce said: “In order to deliver the very best patient care as our services grow we need to recruit exceptional staff. This is a great opportunity to join one of the largest and best cancer centres in the UK. Recent polls have shown Norwich to be one of the happiest places to work and the happiest place for children to grow up which helps to create a very positive work life balance for our employees.”

The day will include tours, specialist talks with the departments as well as a chance to see what Norfolk is like as a place to settle. There will be information available on courses provided by partners such as the University of East Anglia and the University Campus Suffolk as well as information on housing and local schools to provide people with options should they wish to relocate.
