Band 5 Staff Nurse

£25,655 - £31,534 (Full time, Part time)

Exciting opportunities for Band 5 RMN’s to join LPT’s Female PICU – Griffin Ward

All registered Staff Nurses working on Griffin Ward will receive a recruitment and retention payment of £1,542 per annum (pro rata for part time) in addition to your salary paid monthly subject to tax and national insurance.

The Ward admits females who are posing risks that cannot be safely managed on an open ward from both LPT and surrounding Trusts. Typically our admissions will be short term and patients will be transferred back to an acute ward to continue with their recovery.

Griffin Ward nurses patients in the least restrictive way and focuses on positive engagement and meaningful activity.

We hope to give patients a positive experience of being in hospital whilst focusing on risk management and providing a safe environment.

People wishing to join the team on Griffin Ward should be motivated to work in a service that offers involvement and empowerment for patients who may have a personality disorder and/or severe mental illness. The Ward will encourage all patients to have a voice in how the Ward works and in their own individual care pathway.

We are looking for passionate individuals who are committed to delivering the highest levels of patient care in a challenging but rewarding environment.

We are looking for the following attributes in our staff:

  • a person centred ethos, showing empathy and the desire to make a difference.
  • ability to work effectively in a team ensuring consistency and continuity of care for patients.
  • able to demonstrate initiative and creativity.
  • flexible, adaptable, well organised and able to manage workload and time effectively in line with the needs of the Ward.
  • a desire to expand on your existing skills and knowledge and support organisational change.
  • able to build effective therapeutic relationships quickly with patients.
  • build excellent relationships with other services and ensure effective admission and discharge plans.
