*Full and Part time vacancies available*

Want to be a part of the only Emergency Department in the UK dedicated to the elderly?  Want to work in more than just a frailty unit attached to an ED?  Then we have the role for you.

The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital is recruiting staff with a passion for caring for Older People as we celebrate the 1 year anniversary of our revolutionary new service. Our continued work on Frailty identification and intervention has seen a significant redesign of our services over the last year, leading to the creation of a dedicated Older Peoples ED (OPED), for patients of 80 years and over. OPED  identifies Frailty and expedites tailored expert intervention between the hours of 8am-8pm with consultant geriatrician supervision alongside a rapid MDT way of working.

We have seen in the last year, a significant decrease in our ED conversion rates for frail elderly, and a concomitant drop in our hospitals average length of stay.

This ground breaking scheme is the first in the UK and is delivering a dynamic service that meets the needs of an ever growing part of the population.

Now that the service is established we are looking to add to our team of Registered Nurses. This role offers an exciting and challenging opportunity to work alongside a highly skilled and passionate team as we look forward to the future development and expansion of OPED.

The successful applicant will benefit from a structured development plan and further educational opportunities as we encourage each and every member of staff to achieve their full potential.

Why NNUH?

Just think where your NNUH career could take you. Norfolk and Norwich university Hospital is the 6th largest acute hospital in the UK with new clinics and services being introduced each year, the possibilities are endless.  With strong links to the University of East Anglia and Norwich Research Park we want to give our staff every opportunity and the support to achieve their potential.  This also allows us to have an imaginative approach to our nursing teams, including Nurse Registrars and Nurse Consultants running their own clinics and Advanced Nurse Practitioners taking a leading role in the care of patients.

Why Norwich?

In Norwich a staggering 77% of people say they love their job.   Although less than 2 hours from London and serviced by excellent transport links , Norwich is one of few UK cities that still retain a strong local identity and with that a strong sense of community – people walk down the street and say hello to each other, baristas remember our coffee order, you get to know about interesting local projects.

This strong sense of self along with excellent shopping, eating out, affordable house prices and excellent schooling is why Norwich has been ranked by the Guardian as the best city to work in.
