UHNM County Hospital – Band 5 Vacancies (Acute Medical Unit & Medical Receiving Unit Team)
Team AMU at County Hospital are seeking to recruit Band 5 nurses who have a drive to deliver high quality care, who have a vision for their own development and want to make a difference.
The team has recently received Gold standard for the Clinical Excellence Framework and we are keen to maintain this standard and improve further.
We are a 31 bedded acute medical unit that deals with a range of medical conditions supported by a dedicated team of Consultants, therapy staff and ward based pharmacy staff. We also staff and manage the Medical Receiving Unit (MRU) which provides both a service for patients so that they can return for follow up after discharge and an area where new medical patients are assessed prior to transfer to an AMU or ward bed.
As a new starter you will receive a very warm friendly and encouraging welcome. It is important to give you a supernumerary period to ensure that you have time to orientate yourself to your new environment. All newly qualified staff will be assigned a preceptor of their choice and be enrolled onto a preceptorship course.
We will support you to achieve the following Key training and competencies;
Immediate Life Support
Venepuncture and cannulation
Core mandatory training
We will also facilitate the opportunity to spend time with Clinical nurse specialists and our advanced nurse practitioners to enhance your skills and knowledge further. If you have an interest in a certain area for example Diabetes we have opportunities for link nurses to support the teams knowledge and education.
Your development is important to us and you will receive a PDR at 6 months to ensure that your development needs are met. There is also the opportunity of a rotational spell at AMU Royal stoke and A&E County.
A preceptorship package will be available for new staff.
Please contact Ward Manager Rodney Lowe or Matron Allison Taylor, County Hospital Stafford if you would like any further information or an informal visit prior to interview.
We look forward to hearing from you.
