We are one of the country's top performing NHS Foundation Trusts, looking after the wellbeing of around half a million people across Northumberland and North Tyneside - one of the largest geographical areas of any NHS Trust in England.

We deliver care from 11 acute sites including an emergency care hospital, general and community hospitals, an outpatient and diagnostic centre, an elderly care unit and an integrated health and social care facility.

We are rated 'outstanding' overall by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). We are one of the North East's largest employers with 9,500 dedicated members of staff. We have a Council of Governors with 70 members, representing the public, staff and some of our external partners.

We invest heavily in staff to ensure that the best talent is attracted, developed, looked after, and retained in every area of the organisation. Staff satisfaction is high and our staff consistently rate us as one of the best places to work in the NHS.

We were one of the first NHS Trusts to receive foundation status, and have been a foundation trust for over a decade.

Candidates must read the entire 'Applicants Guidance Notes' before submitting any applications.

Please note that it is a requirement of this employer that all successful applicants pay for their own DBS certification if a DBS check is required for the post. The method of payment is a salary deduction from your first monthly pay.

Trauma and orthopaedics are looking for an enthusiastic, well-motivated member of staff to join our team. We are a busy trauma unit which strives to deliver high quality, holistic care to all our patients.

We pride ourselves on the adaptability of our team to meet the challenges that trauma brings. With this ever advancing area there are huge opportunities to learn and develop skills at all levels. We actively encourage our staff to develop their skills through a variety of learning environments believing this will not only be beneficial to the patients care but give an individual a sense of ownership and team development.

The trauma unit is involved with HIP QIP, (Hip Fracture Quality Improvement Programme) which has the aim to provide continuity of care to all fractured neck of femur patients through a number of different measures using best practice. With the success of the programme we have collaborated with other Trusts and have now worked on The Scaling up Projects with the aim to share and spread the success of what HIP QIP has achieved and its initiatives in other areas around the country so to implement best practice up and down the country.

ESSENTIAL:
  • 1st Level live NMC Registered Nurse
  • Thorough understanding of contemporary nursing issues
  • Ensuring the delivery of 'Compassion in Practice' - Nursing, Midwifery and Care Staff Vision and Strategy, incorporating the 6C's.
  • Able to manage a ward/department area for a period of a shift
  • Registered Mentor. Mentorship Qualification or relevant equivalent qualification (essential requirement for post, expectation this will be completed within an 18 month period)
  • Must be flexible to meet the needs of the service
