Innovative nursing is encouraged and there is a well-established and supportive team working on the ward including dedicated ward based OT/Physio/Dietitian/Pharmacist.

We are looking for nurses who have the desire and enthusiasm to expand/enhance their nursing experience/skills (e.g. management of central lines; phlebotomy/cannulation; delivery of chemotherapy) and work in this rewarding environment.

You will be supported in your post by the ward sisters/team and the Clinical Educator and offered learning and developmental opportunities appropriate to your personal development.

Benefits include:

Ongoing training and development

Enhance pay for unsociable hours

Effective team working
