Staff Nurse - Clinical Decision Unit
Lewisham and Greenwich Trust provides hospital and community services for more than 526,000 people across south east London. We put patients at the heart of everything we do, which is reflected in the positive feedback we receive. We are a friendly and dynamic place to work, with high levels of job satisfaction and excellent transport links serving our two hospitals – University Hospital Lewisham and Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Greenwich.
We are seeking dedicated, motivated people to help us provide high quality care to our local communities. In return for your hard work, we offer well-established, structured mentoring and staff development packages to support you in your role.
At Queen Elizabeth Hospital we see Emergency Care as a specialty for nurses in which they can play a major contribution to patient care. We are currently expanding our specialist workforce to meet the modernisation programme that will see the Emergency Department grow.
The Clinical Decision unit is a 12 bedded 6 chair area for inpatients on the emergency pathway. The Clinical Decision Unit provides high quality patient care to assess a patient’s medical condition, organise appropriate tests and further management to determine their need for inpatient admission.
In order to provide the highest quality of care for our patients we welcome nurses who are honest, reliable, a good team player as well as really caring about the contribution they make to not only patient care but also to their own personal and professional development, working environment and colleagues.
As we have strong links with local Universities an amazing benefit to joing the team is that we are committed to delivering work-based educational initiatives. We offer a band 5 development programme which includes in house accredited Foundations of Emergency Nursing Course.
If you would love to be part of a fun, supportive team then please apply today.
