We are currently looking to recruit enthusiastic and motivated band 5 nurses to join our Emergency Department at the Northern Devon Healthcare Trust, which has recently undergone major refurbishment.
If you’re looking for your next role and an opportunity to work within a fast paced, dynamic environment as part of an experienced, committed team then we’d be pleased to hear from you.
We recognize that nurses are seeking a career pathway and development opportunities. Staff are supported by an Education Facilitator and are part of a Band 7 Senior Sister/Charge Nurse development and appraisal team.
We have a very proactive education program, within the Emergency Department to include enhanced clinical skills such as suturing and x-ray ordering. We were the first Trust in the south west to gain Trauma Unit status for which we are very proud. Staff are supported and encouraged to develop the many skills and knowledge required to look after our diverse patient group which includes both adults and children.
Previous experience working within an Emergency Care are desirable but not essential.
The Emergency Department covers a wide catchment area last year had approximately 47,000 attendances. We are continuously striving to provide high quality patient care and believe in the fact that all patients should receive the right care by the right person with the right skills the first time. This is evidenced by our patient feedback.
If you require further information please contact Jo Hope on 01271 322480.
