Medical 2 is based at West Cornwall Hospital in Penzance. The ward cares for a variety of eldercare and general medical patients as well as taking patients directly referred by GPs, Urgent care or transferred from other hospitals – this is reflected in the wide variety of illnesses in their patients.
In addition to eldercare and medical patients the ward provides post-acute care of trauma and surgical patients. The ward is expert in complex discharge planning, forging links with community and external services including the volunteer sector.
The team at WCH have been leading the way with a number of initiatives to improve patient care for patients with dementia and memory loss, including a Memory Café. The post holder must be willing to learn and will have opportunity to attend formal study sessions.
We are looking for energetic, forward thinking flexible and self-motivated individuals to join our teams. These posts involve a variety of nights, weekdays and weekend shifts. There are opportunities for full and part-time hours.
