Ward 10 is in the process of developing a 6 bed Respiratory Support Unit (RSU) within the Ward 10 template.

An RSU is an area of enhanced care that enable a higher level of monitoring and respiratory intervention than would be expected for a routine ward environment. Patients suitable for management in an RSU are those individuals who need more monitoring and/or intervention than can be typically provided in a ward, but do not require critical care.

Main duties of the job

We care for a variety of patients with both acute and long term conditions including patients stepping down from ITU/HDU. We are a 29 bed ward incorporating seven monitored beds which provide the facility to offer non-invasive ventilation (NIV), continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) and specialist high flow oxygen in the ward setting. We have strong links with both the hospital respiratory nurse specialists and community staff to ensure best treatment and continuity.

We require enthusiastic motivated individuals who have the ability and passion to work within our friendly ward team. Acute Respiratory Medicine is continuously expanding its service and we require staff nurses who have the ambition to help drive these changes and help expand the service we offer. Commitment to undertake ongoing training and development is essential. We offer both ward based training and customised respiratory study days developed by our ward team and specialist nurses.

You should be motivated, keen to learn and ready to embrace change. Our commitment to you is to provide the environment for this to happen and ensure that you are part of our defined preceptorship programme. We are able to offer both full and part-time posts within our team.

The ability to speak Welsh is desirable for this post Welsh and/or English speakers are equally welcome to apply.
