Why join us in Oncology & Haematology?
A Major Hub for Cancer Treatment
NNUH is home to one of the largest Oncology and Haematology departments in the UK. We now have a dedicated ward for both Oncology (Mulbarton Ward) and Haematology (Mattishall Ward). We are supported by the Acute Oncology Service which triages our patients. Our Weybourne Day Unit has recently undergone a huge expansion project and is launching the Chemo Bus which travels around the county.
Endless Opportunities for Nurses
As part of our specialist nursing team, you’ll gain experience in performing chemotherapy administration, radioactive iodine treatment, IV drug therapies, excellence in end of life care and much, much more! We have dedicated Clinical Skills nurses to enhance your practice and the Sisters are keen to support career development.
A Leading Authority on Care
Our Acute Oncology Service has been recognised as a Centre of Excellence.
Highly Rated by Patients
Mulbarton and Mattishall consistently achieve 100% in the Patient Recommendation Survey. We pride ourselves on empowering our patients to make decisions about their care at the most stressful time of their life. We do this by caring holistically for the patient and their families’ physical and emotional needs.
The Oncology and Haematology wards co-ordinate the provision and development of cancer services across the Trust.
Our aim is to provide the best possible standards of treatment, care and support for patients and carers affected by cancer and haematological conditions. We offer a professional and friendly service in the most efficient manner possible, using the latest technology and research available to us.
Mattishall Ward is primarily Haematology; focussing on chemotherapy delivery and immune-supressing therapies. It also accommodates the AOS (Acute Oncology Service) which triages patients to Mattishall and Mulbarton. AOS also provide interventions to help keep patients at home if possible.
Mulbarton Ward is the Oncology Ward, caring for patients undergoing chemotherapy, developing neutropenic sepsis or needing specialist nursing care for radiation treatment, tracheostomy care or palliative care.
Weybourne is our day unit for outpatient Chemotherapy.
We pride ourselves on working closely together to benefit our patients in having a professional and friendly patient experience. We describe ourselves as a family, we support each other as we journey with our patients with the highs and the lows.
The unit has a great future planned. We intend to move the wards closer together to make sharing learning and team working even easier. We are happy to support secondments to other areas so you gain a full appreciation of the entire service and extend your skills.
Our Consultant team includes our Service Director of Oncology, Clinical Oncologists, Medical Oncologists and Palliative Care Consultants.
Other Doctors on the team comprise Specialist Registrars, Junior Doctors and Medical Students. Our Nursing team is led by our Oncology and Haematology Matron who is supported by a team of Sisters, Oncology Nurse Specialists and Palliative Nurse Specialists. We are also supported by an extensive Radiotherapy team.
