Closing date

Surgery across the Royal London Hospital has been redesigned to ensure we provide excellent care for all our patients. Ward 10E has been instrumental in tackling the challenges ahead and reducing our waiting times for urgent surgical care. Wards 10E manage the following specialties:

Surgical Admission ward:The ward works closely with our emergency department. Our main aim is to create a smooth admission pathway from the front door to go through either our emergency surgical ambulatory care unit or onto our admissions ward.

Vascular Care Unit: Dedicated beds to the management and care of our vascular patients. This will involve close MDT working for patients requiring urgent and emergent vascular procedures.

Main duties of the job

Nurses working on these wards will develop expert knowledge in assessment, complex wound management, care of cancer patients, management of vascular conditions and effective patient flow.

We are looking for enthusiastic nurses with a variety of experience who will use there initiative to improve service delivery. We need nurses who are willing to adapt and work with the vascular team to ensure we embed these changes for the benefit of our patients. Our practice development nurses and vascular nurse specialists provide day to day support and have established an education programme for all your training needs.

As we develop our service we will look to start a rotation programme though our four wards including experience in theatres and critical care. We strive to ensure our nurses thrive in our service, we have an open door policy for anyone working in our division.

The Government has announced that the legal requirement for all NHS workers in England, to be double vaccinated, is currently under legislative review.

We do however encourage those in roles that have face to face contact with patients to be double vaccinated against COVID-19 (unless they are medically exempt), and are continuing to support the vaccination uptake for all staff as this remains the best line of defence.
