Pre-Assessment Nurse

Band 6

Homerton University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is a high performing and flourishing organisation serving the population of Hackney, East London, The City and beyond. 


We are very proud that the CQC has recently rated Homerton Hospital’s A&E department as 'Outstanding' medical care at the hospital as 'Outstanding', and our acute services and community services for adults, children and young people as ‘Good’.


Our integrated Trust provides comprehensive hospital and community health services for its local population and a range of specialist services for a wider group of patients. These specialist services include obstetrics, neonatology, foetal medicine, fertility, neuro-rehabilitation, bariatric surgery, and asthma and allergy services.


The local City and Hackney community served by the Trust is highly diverse with a complex mix of clinical and cultural needs.   Good working relationships, strong multi-agency working arrangements and integrated pathways already exist between hospital and community health services, primary care, local authority and mental health services.  


The trust is an active partner in bringing different services together across City and Hackney to provide integrated care closer to home, and in the development of an ‘Integrated Care System’, of which the Trust is a major partner, which aims to bring together health and care services, the wider community and voluntary sector to work closer together to provide great services for local people in City and Hackney.


Homerton has a proud tradition of supporting and developing its staff, including its well regarded and valued nursing community, and all staff are able to take advantage of a great range of benefits.


Homerton University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is proud to have been included on the HSJ and Nursing Times Best Places to Work list, and has recently achieved 'Excellence' status in the Healthy Workplace Charter, as awarded by the Greater London Authority.



The Role



We are looking for an experienced Pre-Assessment nurse to join us in one of the UKs leading Hospitals in North East London for a 12 month fixed term contract.



Homerton University Hospital has six state of the art Theatres and a modern Surgical and Day Care unit covering all major surgery (Orthopaedics, Gynaecology, Bariactrics, Urology and general patients among others).



You will contribute to the provision of world-class care within our hospital by delivering an exemplary pre-assessment service to patients.



This key role will also see you supporting the Pre-Assessment Lead Nurse to deliver the service and taking the lead in her absence. Working with pride, enthusiasm and a real passion for caring, you will explain to patients being assessed their own and others responsibilities and identify patients health needs through observation, discussion and the use of technical assessment methods. You will also support and advise colleagues on assessment approaches.



Ready to put patients at the heart of everything you do, you will be a registered nurse with experience of working in and across multidisciplinary and pre-assessment teams.



Teaching and assessment skills will also be essential. Known for your sound clinical judgement, you will bring up-to-date training in infection control and health and safety and a sound understanding of evidence-based practice. Above all, you will be committed to working in partnership with consultants to create innovative solutions for services that make a difference to patients lives.



To be considered for this role you must be Registered Nurse or Operating Department Practitioner and have experienced in hospital settings.
