Ward Nurse, RGN - ManchesterSpire Healthcare – ManchesterFull-timeUp to £26,000 dependent on experienceAt Spire Healthcare, we provide the highest standards of healthcare, from the moment our patient gets in touch with us until after treatment has been completed. With over 30 years’ experience, we’re proud of our dedicated and highly trained team, which consistently achieves excellent results. What sets us apart is our people, from the very best medical professionals to attentive and highly experienced support staff. Talented people like you.Working across a caseload of patients with vastly different needs, you will be tasked with assessing their wellbeing, determining the best course of action. Always involving them in the decision-making process, you will explain exactly what you are proposing, and be there as a point of contact for them when discussing their wishes with the Consultants. Assessing their health through technical assessment methods, you will use your analytical skills to judge what the next steps should be, escalating the case to more senior staff whenever you need the extra support. While developing care plans, you will also deploy your considerable tact when receiving and conveying sensitive information, and showcase your extensive nursing skills through every stage of the care process. Working in an environment such as this is highly desirable. That’s because we are committed to helping our staff fulfil their full potential through a broad scope of learning opportunities – as such, you will set your own personal development objectives, and actively follow up on any areas that you feel could do with improving. Likewise, you will willingly share your knowledge with colleagues, helping them to broaden their skills. We take safety very seriously at Spire Healthcare, so you will utilise your extensive knowledge of legislation and procedures to achieve the highest standards, and your innovative suggestion for improving the service will keep us ahead of our competitors. As a Registered Nurse with the ability to balance your own workload, you will have fantastic organisational skills, an excellent bedside manner and the confidence to see a patient through from initial assessment to any follow-up care. Confident working with minimum supervision, you will be proficient in working with equipment and medical devices. With a high standard of spoken English, you will have evidence of continuing professional development – and if you happened to working towards a post registration qualification, that would be even better (though isn’t absolutely essential). You will also be registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council. This is a truly fantastic role for a team-player who shares our passion for providing the best care to a broad cross-section of patients, so if you combine a gentle touch with the drive to be the best in your field, we’ve got the perfect role for you.
