personal commitment to deliver high standards of patient centred care. You should be a team. player who has recent experience in the provision of postoperative or critical.
care; ideally you will have completed the Post Anaesthesia Care Competencies, or be keen to. work towards achievement of these competencies whilst in post.

days are the same. Applications are welcome from experienced nurses or from Registered Operating. Department Practitioners.
