King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, part of King's Health Partners Academic Health Sciences Centre (AHSC), is one of the UK’s largest and busiest teaching hospitals with a turnover of nearly £1 billion, 1.5 million patient contacts a year and more than 12,600 staff based across 5 main sites in South East London and Kent.

The Trust provides a full range of local hospital services across its different sites, and specialist services from King’s College Hospital (KCH) site in Camberwell and the Princess Royal University Hospital (PRUH) site in Bromley, Orpington Hospital, and some services at Beckenham Beacon and Queen Mary’s Sidcup.

The Trust is recognised internationally for its work in Liver disease and Transplantation, Neurosciences, Cardiac, Haemato-oncology, Fetal Medicine, Stroke, Major Trauma, and Emergency Department.

Ontario Ward is a neurological rehabilitation ward, part of Kings College Neurosciences division located in Orpington hospital.

We have a vacancy for a Band 5 staff nurse.

Experience in neuro rehabilitation nursing is highly desirable, but if you have post registration experience in an acute setting and would like the opportunity to learn new skills there is lots to learn.

We strongly support staff education and there is a Neuroscience Nursing Foundation course that includes a rotation through the different ward areas. This is an excellent development opportunity and allows you to see the whole picture from admission to rehabilitation.

If you have high standards, compassion, excellent communication skills and is interested in making a difference to patient care this may be the role for you.
