What is frailty? It is a state of health that is related to the ageing process. On Ward 20A/20B, at Solihull Hospital, we have a 25, bedded Trauma and orthopaedic short stay ward, and a 26 bedded frailty medical ward with a passion for the healthcare of older people.

In addition, Ward 16 is a further medical ward of 27 beds within Solihull Hospital that accommodates patients with all medical needs. Not all older people need to be admitted to or spend long periods in hospital and on Ward 20A/20B and ward 16, our aim is assessing a patient's medical and social needs and get them back home as soon as it is safe to do so.

If so, come and join our friendly multidisciplinary team where you will be given an induction to the ward, named preceptor, receive a comprehensive nurse induction, including Intravenous therapy and any other further training you may need in order to develop in this field of nursing.
