This is an exciting opportunity to join a friendly and dynamic team on the newly established specialist vascular surgery ward, Denton. Following recent reorganisation there are a number of vacancies for talented and motivated nurses to support the ongoing expansion of the entire vascular service. We will be providing a range of new and exciting care packages for our patients, including a development of the Interventional Radiology department which will increase the number of endovascular procedures being undertaken.
Denton ward works as a close and integrated team, bringing together consultants, doctors, nurses and other care staff to provide patient centric care. Our team includes Vascular Specialist Nurses who support the ward, as well as working in clinic; and a nurse who specialises in Amputee care, who has helped set up a specialist amputee gym on the ward to support patients in begining their rehabilitation as early as possible.
Denton provides excellent opportunities for nurses to further develop their skills and competencies, whilst providing care to patients, many of whom have complex surgery or extensive wounds which require careful management. The ward management team provide a strong focus on supporting the nursing team, including:
- Supporting the development of wound care skills
- Ensuring all registered nurses receive training in larvae therapy and vacuum assisted closure therapy
- Organising experience in theatres to provide a fuller understanding of patient care needs
- Providing shadowing opportunities in interventional radiology and with specialist nurses
On joining the team, you can expect a period of supernumerary shifts and a robust induction, including the agreement of a personal development plan based on your current skills and future aspirations within the specialist vascular service.
Denton ward has an excellent reputation for patient care. In 2018 Vascular Surgery combined with Urology won the patient choice ward of the year award at the NNUH Staff awards. Our focus on the patient has continued since the establishment of Denton Ward, with the ward receiving positive feedback from patients and their relatives. “I would like to pass on my absolute gratitude to the wonderful nursing staff; I found them to be extremely professional, kind and considerate.”
Denton Ward operates a full shift pattern of days, nights and weekends. The day shifts commence at 07:00 until 19:30 and nights 19:00 until 07:30.
Why the NNUH?
The Norfolk and Norwich university Hospital provides excellent career development opportunities. It is the 6th largest acute hospital in the UK with new clinics and services being introduced each year. With strong links to the University of East Anglia and Norwich Research Park we give our staff every opportunity and the support to achieve their potential. We have an imaginative and creative approach to how we use our nursing teams, including deploying Nurse Registrars and Nurse Consultants, who run their own clinics and Advanced Nurse Practitioners who take a leading role in the care of patients.
In Norwich a staggering 77% of people say they love their job. Although less than 2 hours from London and serviced by excellent transport links , Norwich is one of few UK cities that still retain a strong local identity and with that a strong sense of community – people walk down the street and say hello to each other, baristas remember our coffee order, you get to know about interesting local projects. This strong sense of self along with excellent shopping, eating out, affordable house prices and excellent schooling is why Norwich has been ranked by the Guardian as the best city to work in.
A £2000 welcome package and relocation package are available (terms and conditions will apply). Please contact Charlotte Brown, Ward Sister, on 01603 286877 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
