The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital is recruiting staff with a passion for caring for Older People as we launch our revolutionary new service. Our continued work on Frailty identification and intervention has seen a significant redesign of our services over the last year, leading to the creation of a dedicated Older Peoples ED (OPED), for patients of 80 years and over. OPED will continue to identify Frailty and expedite tailored expert intervention between the hours of 8am-8pm with consultant geriatrician supervision alongside a rapid MDT way of working.
This consultant led service, so far, is responsible for a significant decrease in our ED conversion rates for frail elderly, and a concomitant drop in our hospitals average length of stay, average number of patients staying longer than 14 days and HSMR.
This ground breaking scheme is the first in the UK and will deliver a dynamic service that meets the needs of an ever growing part of the population. It is already capturing the imagination of the national media and is one of a suite of exciting changes in our approach to caring for Older People that we are implementing
Would you like to be part of this exciting change? If so, you’ll need to share our passion for innovation in the way we treat Older People and our caring nature: our recent Friends and Family Test showed 97% of patients would recommend us to a family member. Above all, you’ll be able to demonstrate the skillset and mind-set that matches our ambition to set the gold standard for the care of Older People.
The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital is adjacent to the University of East Anglia, the Medical School, established in 2002, and the world renowned Norwich Research Park. This ensures that our staff have access to research, development and first class teaching facilities and offers you the opportunity to take your career forward.
With excellent transport links to Cambridge and London, Norfolk offers everything you need to establish the perfect work life balance.
