Now couldn’t be a better time to join our team – we are opening a brand new clinical assessment facility in November 2018!
This is a brand new purpose built unit at Queen Elizabeth Hospital. The unit will feature multi professional working at its highest level.

As a staff member you will be supported by one of our Practice Development Nurses (PDN) within the division. We offer excellent developmental programmes at bands 5, 6 and 7. As a band 5 staff nurse you will receive a tailored induction programme that is supported by a competency document for you to complete on the ward with an allocated mentor. We can also offer rotational posts within all areas of acute and elderly medicine and the Emergency Department.
You will receive an annual Individual Performance Review by your line manager to help facilitate your development. We support staff with post registration courses relevant to their field of practice at Greenwich and Kings College Universities.
In addition, to further support you in your role, the Trust can also offer accredited leadership and management training: Level 5 - Extended Diploma in Management and Leadership. This apprenticeship is fully funded and specifically designed to meet the needs of middle managers wishing to acquire a range of management knowledge and skills and thus develop their career.
