An exciting opportunity has arisen for an individual aspiring to progress in their nursing career to join Denver Ward as a Staff Nurse. Denver Ward is an acute emergency surgical ward that specializes in Colorectal and lower GI, as well as other general surgery.

Denver Ward is an exciting area to work where staff will gain a wealth of knowledge and skill due to the clientele of patients, as well as gain experience of caring for patients following major surgery who are stepped down from ITU.

Main duties of the job

As a staff nurse you will be expected to provide a high standard of patient care to all patients on the ward on a timely basis.

Denver Ward is an acute surgical ward, so you will be required to be organised and cope well under pressure. The role requires flexibility and enthusiasm, as our staff are expected to work across all shifts including nights.

This vacancy is for Registered Nurses with full NMC registration in the UK. If you are an internationally trained nurse that has not passed their OSCE (objective structured clinical examination) you will not be considered for this role and will be automatically rejected, so please do not apply.

However we do support Internationally Trained Nurses with their OSCE through the Norfolk and Waveney Recruitment Hub Please note that we adhere to the NHS Code of Practice and cannot recruit from 'red list countries'

If you are a new registrant, we look forward to welcoming you onto the RCN accredited Preceptorship Academy at the QEH. This programme offers a supportive development transition into your new role as a registered member of the team. If you would like further information, please email the team

About us

There's never been a more exciting time to join TeamQEH. We're working on a once in a generation opportunity to build a new state-of-the-art hospital to open in 2030 and we are also carrying out on one of the biggest pieces of digital transformation work we've ever undertaken.

Our new electronic patient record (EPR) will replace paper-based patient records from 2026 and will lead to better, safer, joined-up care at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital and beyond.

We are an ambitious organisation that upholds our values of kindness, wellness and fairness. We strive for continuous quality improvement, recently demonstrated in our 2024 CQC maternity inspection rating our services as 'Good', and we are proud to be a place to learn and grow through recognised learning and apprenticeships.

We recognise and reward our 4,000 staff and volunteers, priding ourselves on a community atmosphere and positive team spirit. We have approx. 530 beds across 33 wards and have newly built education and training facilities, a range of modern award-winning centres alongside a talented team of people ready to give you a warm welcome.
