Trauma & Orthopaedics Staff Nurse (Band 5)

NHS AfC: Band 5

We are always looking for enterprising and innovative approaches to the way we provide our services. We are a national centre for telemedicine and introduced telehealth to the UK offender healthcare sector and also provide the service to patients in their care homes. Community matters to us and we are supported by 400 dedicated volunteers and have strong links with Bradford University, Craven College and Leeds City College to ensure we inspire the workforce of the future.

We want to attract staff who embrace our ‘Right Care’ behaviours of compassion, a commitment to quality of care and working together for patients – we want to make these part of our DNA.

We are looking to recruit enthusiastic, motivated staff with excellent communication skills to join our forward thinking dynamic orthopedic nursing team on Ward 9 . You must have a passion for delivering kind and compassionate care. Recruiting motivated, capable and committed staff is the key to maintaining our high standards of quality, safety and patient experience.

Ward 9 is a 28 bedded Trauma Orthopaedic ward with an additional dedicated bed for admission of patients with a fractured neck of femur.

Our award winning integrated Trust is in a beautiful location providing genuine opportunities for a great work-life balance and we are happy to consider flexible working including annualised hours.
