Glenfield Hospital, Staff Nurse Respiratory Wards.

Full or Part Time, Days and Nights

A number of opportunities have arisen for Registered Nurses to join our team at Glenfield Hospital working as a Staff Nurse in the Respiratory Medicine Specialty. Positions are available on our respiratory wards, including Wards 17, 20 and 29.

All training including a full induction will be provided therefore prior experience is desirable but not essential, a desire to learn and share our values is all we ask. We have an excellent track record of supporting registered nurses from outside the acute sector such as nursing homes or community care to gain acute inpatient NHS medical experience as they have many transferable skills that are appropriate to the care of our patients.

Ward 29 is a respiratory ward that specialises in Pleural diseases and Lung Cancers. You would be nursing a variety of patients with a range of acute and chronic conditions such as Pleural Effusion, Pneumothorax, Pulmonary Embolism, Lung Cancer, Cor Pulmonale, Mesothelioma, Asthma, COPD and Bronchiectasis.

Patients have a range of interventions, both on the ward within our procedure room & through close collaboration with the Thoracic surgery department. We have ample opportunities to learn Chest Drain management and you would be working through a ward-based competency pack devised by our Pleural Diseases Specialist Nurse. Our patients have a number of specialist services involved to provide individualised care with as much support available as possible; These can include the Asthma Nurses, COPD Specialists, Respiratory Physiology, Lung Cancer Nurse Specialists and Palliative Care.

All wards care for medical respiratory patients with both acute and chronic conditions and have a variety of wards and units. Patient - centred, individualised care is at the heart of everything that we do.

All wards support a number of advanced practice initiatives such as educating Trainee Associate Practitioners and Trainee Nursing Associates and are consistently evaluated very highly by learners.

A comprehensive induction package is offered by the ward staff supported by the education and practice development team based at the UHL academy on site, this includes experiences of Adult intensive care, Thoracic Specialist Nurse Service, Asthma Nurse Service and Respiratory Physiology.

Respiratory Medicine is part of the wider Renal, Respiratory, Cardiac and Vascular management group (RRCV). Glenfield Hospital (GH), is RRCV’s main administrative site and is located approximately three miles from Leicester City Centre on a spacious campus. This site will eventually be the hub of all specialty acute services in Leicester.

The campus has its own emergency ambulance bay and helipad, modern specialty theatres and intensive care units are also based on this site. GH campus is a regional centre for clinical research with both Respiratory and Cardiac Biomedical research units based here and has close links with both the University of Leicester and De Montfort University.
