Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust London a month ago

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced Band 5 or 6 Nurse to join the Deputy team on Blundell Ward. If you are highly motivated and looking to develop your Band 6 clinical leadership skills within a supportive and innovative environment we would like to hear from you.

The successful candidate would be expected to work in partnership with the team of Deputies to support the Ward Sister and the Matrons. This is an exciting opportunity to work within a highly renowned and innovative multi-disciplinary team at one of the UK's leading teaching Hospitals in the heart of London.

Blundell ward is a 22 bedded Head and Neck and ENT specialist unit. We provide holistic care for Head and Neck cancer patients undergoing major resection and reconstructive surgery, supportive rehabilitation as well as end of life care. We also care for elective ENT admissions for short stay surgery and accept emergency admissions. We work within a large, dynamic multidisciplinary team to provide Head and Neck cancer services to the whole of the South East.

We have six beds with cardiac monitoring for high dependancy Head and Neck patients to step down from critical care. Critical care or tracheostomy experience would be highly desirable. However we do offer a comprehensive induction and training programme to support you in becoming an expert in complex airway management, enteral feeding, wound care and psychological support.

We are looking for a caring and compassionate nurse who is highly motivated and enthusiastic to join the team in providing the highest standards of individualised patient care. You will be supported by a strong deputy team, Ward Sister, Clinical nurse specialists, the in-patient Matron team as well as a community Head and Neck team.
