Ward C6 University Hospital of Wales is a 38 bedded general medical and FRAME Ward offering valuable clinical experience for newly registered and experienced nurses in the care of  medical patients.

C6 cares for both acute medical patients and patients who require structured MDT rehabilitation in order to return them home. C6 accepts patients directly from the emergency department and assessment unit  as well as  adopting  a patient centred approach to care and rehabilitation which is the golden thread seen throughout the team.

This is why C6  offers a great opportunity for nurses who wish to consolidate or develop their skills. Staff have the opportunity to be involved in the assessment, planning, delivery and evaluation of a wide  group of patients. We work with the wider multidisciplinary team to support people to live well and as independently as possible on discharge. The ward takes place in a number of initiatives and has a keen interest in supporting older people, driving initiatives for improving care such as #GetUpGetDressedGetMoving, The Model Ward for Nutrition and Hydration, Sepsis 6 care, SKIN bundles and Intentional rounding.

We also offer a number of link nurse and champion nurse roles to support your development such as Influenza vaccinator champions and sepsis champions. We will support you with an individualised development plan to help you reach your potential.  A friendly and welcoming team awaits individuals who are kind, caring, keen to learn and motivated.
