Are you looking for something different? A new challenge?

As part of Cardiff and Vale Health Boards preparedness for Winter, Medicine Clinical Board are looking to recruit motivated, driven and passionate registered nurses to support us in opening our additional Winter Pressure Wards in the new Lakeside Wing Hospital at the University Hospital of Wales.

The planned models of care for these wards has a clear focus on rehabilitation, caring for patients who have finished their acute medical journey and require further medical treatment and rehabilitation prior to being discharged. This will be a truly Multi-disciplinary team, working in partnership with AHP, Pharmacist, Medical teams as well as our Local Authority colleagues. There is further opportunity to be involved, if required, in a Transitional Care Unit model, which looks to deliver care in a different way, focussing on a less medicalised model of care with a great focus on a person’s needs and wishes.

If you are a motivated, enthusiastic individual with a passion for person centred care, then we would really welcome your application.

As well as a dynamic, friendly working environment we offer a full induction programme and an individual personal development plan to guide your development within your chosen role. We have an educational pathway to support ongoing learning development to enable all staff to maximise their potential in providing safe and effective care. We support staff in academic learning, supported by proactive educational teams throughout the UHB.

All areas offer electronic self-rostering to help support your work life balance requirements. Positions are full and part time with some areas offering short and long days and flexible shift patterns.
