Weareawarethat familylife canbechallenging, hectic anddifficulttoworkaround - which is why we are extremely flexible in providing you with a work life balance and shift pattern to suit this. We want staff to be happy and fulfilled within our team and believe this starts with a work/life balance.

Are you not only driven but focused, enthusiastic and embrace change - Then this is the role for you. An exciting opportunity has arisen for a senior registered nurse on our fracture hip unit.

Ideally you'll be self-driven and always strive to provide a high standard of nursing care. Your philosophy should be that the patient's needs come first. If you are looking for a new challenge, friendly environment, excellent team work and the opportunity to work in the unique area of combined medicine and surgery this is the path for you, there is no other ward in the trust that provided joint care by the surgeons and medical consultants.

The nurses in our centre are an integral part of the team, working alongside dedicated orthogeriatric specialised team, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, liaison staff, doctors and surgeons. The role within our unit is extremely varied and incorporates all aspects of patient care. We care for the whole patient by providing an individualised holistic approach to delivering goal-centred and outcome focused care. The Unit has a dedicated 7 day orthogeriatric specialist service and also recently embarked on a 7 day therapy service which ensures our patients are reaching their optimum as quickly as possible.

The orthogeriatric unit is in the top 3 trusts in England that ensure patient aged over 60 with a hip fracture go to theatre within 36 hours. We currently provide specialised care for 41-45 patient's, we take admissions directly from the emergency department and also the ACE unit. Our work is varied, but primarily involves nursing an acutely injured patient sustaining a hip fracture and caring for them in their pre-operative phase and post-operative period until day 5 when they follow our robust fracture neck of femur pathway. Our unit is one of only a handful of units in which hip fracture patients are under the joint care of the orthopaedic surgeons and the orthogeriatricians to provide the best possible care for our patients. Excitingly from 2020 we will also be providing care for shafts of femur and also for peri-prosthetic fractures.

Exciting times ahead come and join our amazing team.
