Staff Nurse - Ward 16 (Gastroenterology)

NHS AfC: Band 5

Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust provides integrated acute and community Healthcare in the West Midlands serving a population of 260,000 residents. Walsall Manor Hospital houses the full range of district general hospital services. The £170 million development was completed in 2010 and we are continually upgrading. Construction of the new integrated critical care unit was completed late 2018, and building work to extend the neonatal unit are underway.

We provide high quality, friendly and effective community health services from multiple sites covering Walsall. Our multidisciplinary services include rapid response and homebased care, so that those with long term conditions and the frail elderly can remain in their own homes.

We are recommended by colleagues as a place to work which is supported by the trusts vision and values to work as part of a team, with compassion, professionalism and respect. We will always be supportive to maintain high standards and appreciate every individual. We are committed to investing in our workforce by recruiting to Nursing, Midwifery, Allied Health Professional and HealthCare Science vacancies.

 We have already made substantial progress following our CQC visit and this has been recognised by NHS Improvement. We are committed to delivering high quality care in our wards and services and as part of our improvement plans.


Are you looking for a promotion within the field of Gastroenterology?


An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Band 5 Staff Nurse to join our existing nursing team. We are looking for a confident, highly motivated, experienced nurse to work within the speciality and assist in the delivery of compassionate care to our patients.


Ward 16 has 25 beds and specialises in acute GI conditions – inflammatory bowel disease, liver disease, alcohol dependency, cancer and nutritional problems. We receive admissions from our Acute Medical Unit, GP’s, clinics and the endoscopy suite.


We are supported by 5 consultants who operate a hot week system and review our patients 6 days a week. You will be expected to work closely within this team to ensure high quality care is delivered and to facilitate safe transfer internally and externally to the hospital.


Within Ward 16 we are supported by our specialist nurses and multi-agency workers who are essential to our patient’s journey throughout their stay with us – GI Nurse, Nutrition, Palliative and Drug and Alcohol workers, and provide valuable information to carers and families.


We are currently developing an alcohol pathway, in conjunction with our governance team, which has been recognised nationally as best practice.

You will be required to demonstrate sound leadership skills, collaborative working, the ability to manage an established team and be enthusiastic in addressing service needs to meet strategic demands.


If you enjoy a challenge, are motivated, organised and excellent communication skills and would like to join a dynamic and skilled team then this job is for you.
