Join our amazing and supportive team at John Van Geest Unit based at Stamford and Rutland Hospital!

John Van Geest is a 22 single-bedded step-down ward providing further medical care to patients transferred from Peterborough City Hospital. With a mix of diagnoses and co-morbidities, our patients are often elderly and frail. You will be confident in demonstrating strong acute clinical skills and expertise in assessing and evaluating each patient to identify the right care plan.

With no doctor supervision on-site overnight, you will enjoy a high level of autonomy in making clinical decisions while developing leadership and clinical skills with the help of your team. You will demonstrate a kind and supportive approach when interacting with the team and your manager.

You will thrive in finding creative improvements to our services. You will have the confidence and determination to challenge and question senior leadership on decisions affecting service development and patient care.

We are committed to supporting your career in an environment where your skills and initiatives are valued. We will offer you opportunities for personal and professional development, as well as well-being support and guidance.
