Are you looking for an exciting, dynamic job with like minded individuals?

Ward B6, (formerly located on A5 and C7), could be the right choice for you. We are a 38 bed Amber Surgery ward that nurses a range of emergency elective surgical patients but specialising in both Head and Neck and Urology. We are a team of supportive nurses who are keen to help you in recognising the wide range of opportunities available for your ongoing development and there are many skills to learn in this busy, dynamic area.  

On one side of the ward we care for patients following elective and emergency surgery, within Head & Neck.  The specialties are Ear Nose & Throat, Oral Maxillofacial and Ophthalmology and include highly specialised complex airway management.  On the other end of the ward we nurse Urology patients, one of the most varied branches of surgery which encompasses diseases of kidneys, bladder and prostate, including cancer and bladder reconstructive surgery. Due to the ongoing Covid 19 response, ward B6 also currently  has the capacity to care for patients following Covid illness.

We are seeking ambitious, highly motivated individuals to join our team. Our specialist staff work in a wide range of advanced roles and are keen to share their knowledge and skills with those who want to follow in their footsteps. In return we can offer you a preceptor who will aid in supporting you and helping you gain in-depth knowledge and confidence in this field of nursing, a comprehensive induction programme including a four week supernumerary period, an individualised personal development plan and the support of the practice development team.

The ability to speak Welsh is desirable for this post; Welsh and/or English speakers are equally welcome to apply.
