Following the successful opening of our Northumbria Hospital in 2015 and the separation of emergency care from the thousands of patients attending hospital for planned care, we have made improvements to our planned surgical services to create an orthopaedic centre of excellence for the majority of complex orthopaedic procedures at Wansbeck General Hospital.

We are seeking to recruit enthusiastic, highly-motivated and caring staff to work in this new area. We have expanded our 21-bedded orthopaedic unit to include a further four SERU (surgical enhanced recovery unit) beds and six bone infection unit’ beds.

The SERU provides a dedicated area where high-risk surgical patients receive enhanced post-operative support. Whilst in the bone infection unit, nurses will be caring for complex patients with orthopaedic infections.

The orthopaedic unit is nurse-led and nurses will be in an ideal position to further their skills in post-operative care, recognition of deteriorating patients, multi-disciplinary team communication and clinical reasoning.

The successful candidates will be expected to work as part of a dynamic nursing team delivering all aspects of care to patients, taking charge of the ward regularly and mentoring students as skills develop.

They will also take part in all aspects of essence of care benchmarking and risk management, and assist the ward manager in ensuring the delivery of a quality service under the clinical governance agenda.

Full time and part-time hours would be considered.

Do you want to part of this exciting development and be at the forefront of planned orthopaedic care?
