Job Reference: 358-1705255-RRC

Employer:
University Hospitals of Leicester
Department:
Cardiac Surgery, Glenfield Hospital
Location:
Leicester
Salary:
£24,214 - £30,112 per annum pro rata

A number of opportunities have arisen for Registered Nurses to join our team at Glenfield Hospital working as a Staff Nurse on our Cardiac Surgery Ward which includes our 4 bedded High Dependency Unit.

 

All training including a full induction will be provided therefore prior interest is desirable but not essential.

 

Newly Qualified Nurses and Students evaluate the support received in our area very highly and we have an excellent track record of developing nursing practice. One strategy we use is to rotate our nurses into the HDU area in Cardiac Surgery therefore they gain acute experience and confidence whilst always being supported by an experienced nurse or Deputy Sister.

 

You will also be supported in our area by the senior nursing team and nurse to patient ratio (Ward 31 = 1 RN:7, HDU = 1 RN:2), staff retention is high.

 

A comprehensive induction package is offered by the ward also supported by the education and practice development team based at the UHL academy which is on the Glenfield site, this includes experiences of Angiocatheter Suite, Adult intensive care, Cardiac Rehabilitation and Cardiac Theatres.

 

Cardiac Surgery 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 DeMontfort University.
