We are committed to providing the best working environment for our staff, and we’re investing in our frontline nursing staff by offering an attractive Recruitment and Retention Premium. Our Stroke and Neurology nursing staff will now receive an additional 7% payment in every pay packet, worth up to £164 each month.
We have three specialist Stroke and Neurology wards in Gloucester, with a robust nursing team which works closely with the multi-disciplinary team to provide effective, individual nursing care.
About our wards:
We are committed to continuing professional development of our staff and as part of our General and Old Age Medicine workforce you will have excellent opportunities to specialise in many different areas such as palliative care, dementia care, and complex discharge planning. Additionally, we have developed an academic pathway with the University of Gloucestershire to enhance your existing knowledge and understanding of care for the older person which will be available to you on appointment to this post.
Our common goal is to achieve the best possible outcomes and experiences for our patients and our staff, in line with our Trust vision of best care for everyone. The Care Quality Commission commended our staff by stating that the patients on our medical wards were treated with compassion and respect, and we are looking for nurses with those same qualities to continue to deliver the great care that we strive to provide every day. We aim to recruit the best staff and that is why we have taken the bold decision to award a Recruitment and Retention Premium for our nursing staff within Stroke and Neurology, paying 7% on top of your basic salary (up to £1,972 per annum).
