Here’s your chance to specialise in specialist medicine

“All nurses who work in the division of medicine will have one-to-one support on the wards, as well as weekly teaching sessions open to all nursing staff, and we also support any developmental needs that you may have.” Cheryl Ann Carr, Practice Development Nurse

Are you interested in specialising in Gastroenterology or Endocrinology? Almroth Wright and Rodney Porter wards are established busy 15 and 8 single room Gastroenterology and Endocrine wards. We are steadily building our nursing team and require committed Band 5 nurses to complete the establishment.

These wards care for patients with a range of needs often with multiple conditions, meaning the work is often challenging but always rewarding. We have an establishment of a ward matron and six charge nurses to lead the team. We work closely with the Upper GI, Lower GI and specialist nurses, members of the multi-disciplinary support team and consultants. We pride ourselves on working closely with relatives and carers, the discharge team and the community to ensure that our patients’ needs are met on discharge.

There are opportunities for you to develop and gain skills in the speciality as well as gaining management experience under the guidance of our senior nurse team. You will be offered opportunities to attend study days to learn more about patient conditions such as diabetes and for newly qualified nurses we have a preceptorship programme. We are also keen to develop nursing students of the future and work closely with Kings University and Bucks University to mentor students on placement.

We recognise the great work our nurses do and have already rewarded our nurses through the Trust’s Make a Difference campaign. We are keen to employ nurses who want to develop their skills and deliver high quality care to our patients and support the patient experience.
