Are you interested in leading a team of committed, loyal and dedicated nurses in medicine?

Would your patients say you make them feel safe and they know your name? Would they say you advocate for them and ensure they are involved in decisions about their care?

Would those you work with describe you as a nurse who treats their colleagues with kindness and respect and role models the high standards of care?

Would you like to work where the matrons and Head of Nursing have a strong visible presence and are committed to listening to their nurses and supporting their development?

We have created more opportunities in our wards and we are looking to recruit nurses who are excited by the idea of developing their leadership skills. You will need to be a nurse who is:
• Skilled and knowledgeable and can demonstrate a commitment to personal development
• A strong role model who has the courage to challenge and escalate if care is compromised
• Energised by motivating others and skilled in bringing out the best in those around you
• Committed to developing your leadership skills

To support your development within this role you will have access to regular training and development opportunities. The unit works closely the general medicine and respiratory team to ensure staff are knowledgeable and equipped to care for some of the most vulnerable patients in the Trust.  We offer shadowing opportunities within our specialist areas to.
