Ward 28 & 29 – Leicester General Hospital

University Hospitals Leicester is one of the largest acute teaching Trusts in England offering a wide range of general and specialist services, providing an environment that is both challenging and rewarding.

Ward 28 & 29 currently receives patients for Colorectal, HPB and Urology emergency admissions from GP services, Emergency Department and Community Services. It is a busy and exciting environment to work in and will allow a nurse to develop their nursing assessment skills and extending roles at a fast pace.

In the next 9 months we will be consolidating our General Surgery and HPB emergency take at the Leicester Royal Infirmary and Glenfield Hospital sites. This will leave Urology emergency admissions at the Leicester General Site. This is an exciting time for us to redesign the patient pathway along with influencing the development of our existing accommodation and for you to be a part of it.

You will be required to provide support, knowledge and expertise in the day to day care and management of all patients coming through the ward. Working within this busy environment will provide you with an opportunity to develop and demonstrate you’re clinical, managerial and leadership skills

We are seeking exceptional individuals to apply for this exciting opportunity who are enthusiastic, energetic and thrive in this fast paced acute nursing environment. You will work flexibly as a member of the ward team, and in support of the Ward Sister ensure standards are maintained, evaluated, and where necessary improved.

We encourage you to also be involved in acting on patient feedback in order to improve the clinical and patients environment to continuously improve our care delivery.
