Frailty Assessment Unit is a 19 bedded unit caring for frail patients both male and female over 75 from their own home or 65 from a care home for less than 72 hours. The unit takes direct admissions from A and E and transfers from MEAU. The service is ever growing for frailty and there are exciting opportunities arising. A fantastic opportunity has currently arisen for Staff Nurses to join our team. This is an incredible chance for a conscientious, caring and friendly person to be part of a wonderful nursing team.

Frail older people are complex with a myriad of care needs and they face many challenges during this phase of life. Caring for them and ensuring a safe, efficient, hospital admission and a timely discharge is a valuable skill which is useful in any care environment. If you are up for the challenge, these skills are transferable and essential to meet the nation’s needs.
