Ward 10 is a 28 bedded ward that provides acute medical care to frail and complex patients. The team on Ward 10 are very proud of the care they deliver and in 2019 they were nominated for team of the year within the Trusts prestigious values in practice award.

The team are looking for dynamic, enthusiastic and motivated individuals to join them on their journey to gain exemplar status. We will give you the opportunity to gain essential skills required on an acute medical ward as well as the specialist knowledge you will need to succeed. 

You will be supported to deliver the kindest and safest care to predominantly frail elderly medically unwell patients with a range of acute medical problems/illnesses, manage patients who have complex discharge needs & palliative patients for symptom control or ‘end of life’ care.

Our aim is to provide a caring compassionate environment for all our patients and families by involving them in all aspects of their care. As a team we are continuously working towards delivering high quality care and safe timely discharges.

A supernumerary period will be given to all new starters whether newly qualified or returning to practice.  We will offer you opportunities to develop in a supportive learning environment and a preceptorship programme to enhance your development.  You will have excellent consultant support along with our exceptional ward leaders who will be there to guide and support you every step of the way.

If you're passionate about making a difference and want to belong to something great then we would love to hear from you. Flexible hours can be discussed. Please contact the Ward Manager Sister Sharon Hollister for an informal chat and/or tour of our ward.
