Job description

On 1st October 2019, Liverpool University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust was created, through the merger of Aintree University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust. The newly formed Trust is responsible for managing services at Aintree University Hospital, Broadgreen Hospital, Liverpool Dental Hospital and the Royal Liverpool University Hospital. Bringing together a combined workforce of over 12,000 staff, the Trust has become the largest NHS employer in Merseyside and Cheshire. As well as providing general hospital services to the local population, the Trust provides a range of highly specialist services to more than two million people in the North West and beyond. This merger has been driven by clinicians, who for a long time have recognised that a union of the Trusts will enable significant changes that will transform the way healthcare is delivered. The aim is to address the current levels of variation and fragmentation that exists between acute hospital services in Liverpool, and to ensure that all services are of the highest quality. The new Trust will also seek to influence the wider determinants of health by closer involvement in employment, housing and education, and to be part of a first class research and scientific development partnership with Higher Education and business enterprise across the city and beyond. These changes, which will take place over the next few years, through a phased approach, building on the skills and talents of a fantastic workforce, to spread best practice, deliver innovation and provide sustainable services for patients. This will be achieved by reconfiguring services, centralised where necessary, local where possible and focusing on staff; with an ambition to be the best place for staff to train and work.

The Clinical Haematology Team at the Royal Liverpool University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, based at the Roald Dahl Centre, is looking for a forward thinking, motivated nurse to join the team to support our extensive research portfolio. This role would provide an opportunity to work with a spirited, dynamic clinical team keen to provide the best research for the best health for patients. The successful applicant will work with an experienced clinical research team, including the NIHR National and NWC CRN Clinical Leads for Haematology. The Haematology Research Portfolio has gone from strength to strength with a significant increase in the number of trials opened over the last 5 years including commercial, non-commercial and multiple international world class studies. The Roald Dahl Centre boasts a variety of opportunities for its diverse group of patients. This includes patients with lifelong conditions such as Haemophilia, Thrombophilia, Thrombotic Microangiopathy and Sickle Cell Disease. Although a small team, the Roald Dahl Centre have landed a number of firsts; e.g. first sickle cell patient into Pfizer international trial in collaboration with the Clinical Research Unit, and first vanguard Haemophilia Centre to translate genomics into routine care for bleeding disorders. Through active collaboration with the Life Sciences Commercial Portfolio, the Centre has opened exclusive international Trials for Liverpool patients and has been repeatedly commended for recruitment. The clinical reputation of the Roald Dahl Centre as a tertiary supra-regional referral centre continues to attract commercial studies and improve the translational track record of its basic science research in patients with blood-related complications to critical illness. As such, the impact of RDC Research extends well beyond patients that attend their clinics intensive care, emergency medicine and acute pancreatitis. The team is committed to involving their patient groups. This has led to the delivery of excellent patient care 'hand in hand' with successful clinical research recruitment and provision of world class research opportunities for patients. The RDC has established itself as a Clinical Research site that has had a major impact on the delivery of clinical research studies both locally and across the North West for health and economic impact.
