Twineham ward at the Princess Royal Hospital in Haywards Heath currently has an opportunity to appoint a staff nurse to join their friendly, professional and successful team. The 37 bedded ward provides care mainly for patients with fractured neck of femurs.

The unit treats these clients using a dedicated team of staff, including physiotherapists, occupational therapists and dementia nurses. Our practice educator offers support and education in the ward area, and we are in the process of developing an accredited in-house orthopaedic module.

In addition there is a preceptorship programme in place within the trust for newly qualified nurses. We also offer the opportunity to undertake additional roles within the ward, such as link nurse roles, which will be supported with additional training.

The successful applicant will be able to demonstrate an ability to provide high quality, safe nursing care which is driven by patient experience and evidence-based best practice.
