General Rehabilitation – Registered Nurses

We are looking for Band 5 Registered Nurses to join our team on the General Rehabilitation Unit (full and part-time considered).

You will be expected to work a full range of shift patterns over a seven day week and work flexibly in line with service needs.

We provide care and therapeutic support for thirty patients who have a combination of rehabilitation, neurological, and medical needs. The ward has a multi-disciplinary team of nurses, therapists and medical staff to deliver patient focused high quality care and rehabilitation. Our patients have a variety of clinical conditions and many are frail or vulnerable adults. We take an individualised, multi-disciplinary approach to improve their functional ability and optimise their independence, so they can return to their normal residence. Our aim is to support patients by providing high quality care to achieve their personally specified goals and refer on to community support services and rehabilitation where necessary.

We are looking for hard working, highly motivated and enthusiastic individuals with excellent communication and interpersonal skills, who can personally deliver a high standard of nursing care even under pressure. Integral to this role is the ability to effectively communicate with the patient, families/carers, and the multi-disciplinary team including therapists and social services; as some patients will require complex discharge planning.

You will be expected to act as a positive role model to junior and unregistered staff, demonstrating an interest in the development of the unit and working towards maintaining and improving the standards of care.

This is a friendly, supportive working environment and we are looking for both experienced and newly qualified nurses who can contribute to continuing our high standards of patient care.

For further information please contact either Julie Gomm (Deputy Sister), Debbie Johnson (Deputy Sister) on (01983) 552120 or Carey McShane (Sister)  ( Phone number removed )  ex 4840, for more information or an informal visit.

The Isle of Wight is a beautiful place to live with excellent opportunities for outdoor pursuits. Most of the Island is semi-rural with miles of unspoilt bridleways coursing through National Trust woods and over chalk downs. Spectacular cliff and coastal walks can be enjoyed all around the Island.

House prices compare favourably to the mainland and southern England with a wide choice of desirable property to suit all tastes. In addition, there are excellent public and private schools, and shopping and leisure facilities on the Island have improved enormously in recent years.

There are multiple frequent ferry links to the mainland and London can be reached in 90 minutes by rail from Southampton or Portsmouth. There is a regional airport at Southampton, just 30 minutes away, with flights to many European destinations as well as UK mainland cities.
