If our vision, values and ethos appeal to you now is the time to join #Team SFH. 

What our staff say about us from our recent anonymous Staff Survey: 

'The organisation is a good place to work with strong values and a clear commitment to quality of care and patient experience.'


Working in partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support, Sherwood Forest Hospitals Foundation Trust is delivering  an exciting, innovative and evidence based programme to deliver robust and sustainable services for people affected by cancer. The programme focuses on the Living well beyond cancer diagnosis agenda. 

This post will be a key clinical support to developing the culture of change required to successfully lead the implementation of the ‘Recovery Package’ within Sherwood Forest Hospitals and across the Nottinghamshire Health Community as part of the Cancer Pathways Programme.

If you are a self motivated, experienced registered cancer Nurse who has the ability to work within a wide team and influence others , this could be the role for you.

The successful candidate will be able to work autonomously and have the ability to challenge conventional thinking in a thoughtful and constructive way. You will have excellent communication skills, an ability to work with complex challenges and be able to create strong partnerships and excellent working relationships throughout the hospitals and wider health community.

Training and support will be provided to enable you to reach your individual potential. You in turn will help develop the talent of all staff engaged in the change process, working alongside them in designing, delivering, writing up and presenting their successes.
