Are you wanting to have a positive impact on patient care and take a lead in their inpatient journey?

The successful candidate will facilitate and co-ordinate multi-disciplinary meetings, framing service-user activities in care plans, updating safety assessments and actioning tasks set from the meetings.

Ward 35 is an all-female adult acute ward and is where you will find a positive, supportive and friendly team.

The ward has an established leadership team built with a senior nurse, lead nurses and a senior occupational therapist.

You will need to be dynamic, organised, enthusiastic and motivated with evidence of continued professional development.
