A great opportunity has arisen in Medicine board at UCLH for band 5 staff nurses following a reorganisation and restructure of wards and departments. We are looking for committed and dynamic nurses with excellent communication skills and above all a real desire and passion for caring for sick patients in the acute hospital setting.

We are also looking for experienced nurses to join our friendly team.

T09 South is a new ward that has been formed as part of the reorganisation and restructure at UCLH.  This Internal Medicine ward will be an 18 bedded mixed sex ward caring for patients with a range of acute health and care needs. The patients will be admitted requiring specialist care from cardiology, clinical pharmacology, diabetes and endocrinology specialities. This is an exciting time to be part of the development of a new ward and new team with a focus on providing the best possible patient care and reflecting the trusts core values.

We have recently co-located our Elderly medicine department on T10 ward here at UCLH. Our ward and team are seen as the experts in providing top quality care to older people at UCLH. T10 Ward is a 62 bedded mixed sex ward caring for acutely ill older adults. Many of these patients will have a diagnosis of dementia along with complex medical problems and long term condition management. This is an exciting time to be part of this great team as we work towards meeting our same day emergency care goals and developing our service.
