Full Time
Ward B48 is a 28 bedded female Health Care of Older People (HCOP) based in the Queens Medical Centre.

We are committed to providing the best care for older people with a stable, well supported and motivated workforce. Our pathways and treatment of our vulnerable patient group are at the leading edge within the field. We are innovative and constantly looking for ways to improve the service we provide and exploring new roles in practice.

As a speciality unit we have our own admission area which works closely with the acute frailty unit and front door assessment area- located in the urgent and emergency care department.

Main duties of the job

We are looking for registered nurses who are dedicated and committed and have the ability to be part of a team as well as working autonomously to provide high quality dignified care to our patients in a safe environment.

If you possess excellent organisational and interpersonal skills, have the ability to work within a multi-disciplinary team and have a specialist interest in developing the service we provide then please apply, we would be happy to have you as part of our team.

There are also opportunities to progress up the nursing ladder into advanced clinical practitioner roles.

With over 19,000 staff, we are one of the biggest employers in the city with a central role in supporting the health and wellbeing of our local population. We play a leading role in research, education and innovation.
