MHDU is the Medical Haematology day unit of the Hillingdon Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, and cares for all Haematology and Medical patients who require treatment that can be performed as a day case.
About our services
The unit provides nursing care for patients with a wide range of haematological and medical conditions, both malignant and non-malignant.
These include Leukaemia’s, Lymphomas, Multiple Myeloma, immune deficiencies, renal, neurological, gastroenterology and non-malignant blood conditions.
The unit operates from Monday – Friday between 0830hrs – 1700 hrs.
What we can offer
There are great opportunities for nurses of all grades to develop and extend their scope of professional practice. Comprehensive training is given on the unit for all aspects in cannulation, phlebotomy, and chemotherapy administration. Career development is facilitated by offering permanent staff post registration courses at Buckinghamshire and Thames Valley Universities.
The unit offers a great learning environment with lots of challenges for nurses to develop practitioner and specialist roles.
We also offer internal rotation through the Haematology service enabling the post holder to gain experience within Anti-coagulation and Blood transfusion.
We are looking for two enthusiastic nurses to join our team. The post holders will be expected to ensure safe and effective plans of care are delivered to all patients to a high standard and to be involved in the organising of care to patients on clinical trials with the trial co-ordinator.
Cannulation and phlebotomy skills would be desirable.
For further information and enquiries please contact Gail Poonawala, Lead Nurse for Haematology on ( Phone number removed ) an informal visit would be highly recommended.
