We are excited and proud to offer opportunities to become a part of our 13D nursing team.
The Royal London Hospital is a busy tertiary referral centre caring for acutely unwell patients with complex hepatobiliary problems from across the South East of England. 13D is a 25 bedded general surgical ward where patients are cared for following colorectal, hepatobiliary and upper gastro-intestinal surgery. We also care for patients who require our specialist expertise such as those with severe pancreatitis and cancer.
The environment offers excellent opportunities to expand your experience in caring for patients across a wide range of surgical conditions including managing patients with stomas and complex nutritional requirements and cancer. Working in this highly motivated, well-led team, will give you a solid foundation in acute care skills, decision making skills, discharge planning, as well as care co-ordination skills through multi-disciplinary working. You will have the opportunity to work alongside our experienced clinical nurse specialists to develop your knowledge of specialist pathways. Our surgeons are world-renowned champions of Enhanced Recovery /ERAS which 13D will soon implement putting patients at the centre of their care pathway, empowering them to take an active part in their own progress, both before and after surgery.
The Royal London hospital cares for the diverse population living within East London and beyond. Nurses are expected to provide the highest standard of individualised and holistic care to patients and their families, working alongside the multidisciplinary team, in accordance with agreed policies. Nurses are expected to provide support and professional development to junior members of staff and students, and will be supported to maintain your own personal development portfolio.
Become a confident nurse by joining our outstanding team and grow your competence in acute pain management, identifying and managing deteriorating patients and responding to emergencies as well as complex discharge planning, palliative care and physical rehabilitation.
Whatever your future career goals, this department provides a fantastic opportunity to gain invaluable clinical experience in a large teaching Hospital.
