Overview

A brand new frailty building is opening in January 2021 comprising three frailty wards: a general frailty ward on the ground floor, a short stay frailty assessment unit on the first floor incorporating an assessment area to provide same day emergency care for frail patients, and a Frailty/ Orthopaedic ward on the top floor.

We are proud of our current and developing service which supports the way we care for our frail and elderly patients. This includes in addition to the 72 inpatient frailty beds a front door frailty team consisting of Advanced Care Frailty Practitioners, therapy, medical and nursing colleagues to rapidly assess and facilitate appropriate pathways of care to prevent/minimize the need for an acute inpatient admission.

The vacant posts are for Registered Nurse for Dinmore which is for a ward which will have 24 beds and have an orthopaedic –geriatric specialty so therefore our preferred candidate/s will have a demonstrable passion for the specialty. Experience in the care of orthopaedic surgical patients would be beneficial. You will be working with the geriatricians, orthopaedic surgeons, anaesthetists and theatre staff and working closely with multi professional colleagues.
