Band 7 Senior Clinical Nurse Specialist

Western General Hospital - Permanent

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic, appropriately experienced, and qualified nurse to join the Breast CNS team at the Western General Hospital. The successful applicant will work as part of the team but will primarily be responsible for establishing and running the oral SACT CDK4/6 inhibitor patient service along with pharmacy and medical support. Applicants must have experience of working within breast cancer setting and have a Non Medical Prescribing (NMP) qualification. 

Further information and informal enquires regarding this post can be obtained from Kim Chand, Interim Lead CNS for Breast Services (Kimberley.Chand2@nhs.scot) or  Emma Childs, Interim Nurse Consultant (Emma.childs@nhs.scot)

NHS Scotland is reducing their full-time working week from 37.5 to 37 hours per week from 1 April 2024 but with no change in pay.  This reduction will also be applied pro rata for part time staff.  This advert and any subsequent offer/contract of employment therefore reflects the new working hours.  However, as not all service areas will be able to adopt the 37 hour working week immediately from 1 April 2024, you may be required to work up to an additional 30 minutes per week for a temporary period for which you would be paid until the service you are working in changes rosters or working patterns to accommodate the new reduced working week.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Recruiting Board. 

This post requires the post holder to have a PVG Scheme membership/ record. If the post holder is not a current PVG member for the required regulatory group (i.e. child and/or adult) then an application will need to be made to Disclosure Scotland and deemed satisfactory before they can begin in post. 

NHS Scotland is committed to encouraging equality and diversity among our workforce and eliminating unlawful discrimination.
