The wards are interesting, challenging and motivating nursing environments. We have superb Ward Sisters and Charge Nurses leading equally superb teams of haematology nurses. Staffing levels are good and morale is high. We provide unprecedented levels of post graduate educational courses, degree and Masters pathways which we fully support. As a result of this positive nursing culture, patient feedback is consistently exceptional.

Equally, many of our ward staff make a career on our wards, progressing to different levels of ward nursing leadership. Two of our Ward Sisters have recently been awarded medals from the Chief Nursing Office for England.
