Critical Care (Intensive Care)
Band 6 Senior Registered Nurse / Charge Nurse
Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust is one of the largest acute trusts in the country. We are located in West London and work in partnership with Imperial College London.
The Critical Care department spans across four units located at Charing Cross, Hammersmith and St Mary's Hospitals. The three sites are tertiary referral centres for multiple specialities including major trauma, cardiac surgery, neurosurgery, oncology, hepato-biliary, renal and vascular surgery.
As part of a multi-speciality Critical Care department, we are able to offer staff the exciting opportunity of optional rotation to other sites to develop their skills and expertise in other Critical Care specialities. However, as the service is provided in four distinct units, this enables us to maintain excellent team dynamics whilst benefiting from the shared learning of working in a Critical Care department with 70 beds.
Our patient group is complex and challenging but exciting and rewarding. We are looking for enthusiastic band 6 nurses who are dedicated to delivering and maintaining high standards of care, safety and quality to these patients and their families.
This is an excellent opportunity for someone who wants to build on their experience and knowledge in Critical Care by taking on a senior role within the department with the vision to develop into a shift leader following our structured Band 6 development programme. This role will enable you to broaden your horizons with many clinical, education and research opportunities.
The Critical Care Department utilises a multi-disciplinary team approach to support you in your development. We have a team of Clinical Educators committed to staff development and providing learning opportunities. As specialist centres, we encourage staff to attend relevant speciality training including Neuro and Trauma modules. Specialist management courses are also available at the Trusts leadership Development centre. For those interested in Outreach, we can also facilitate rotations into this dynamic team.
You should have extensive intensive care experience at Band 5, successful completion of a UK recognised Critical Care Course and ideally a mentorship qualification and a history of providing supervision to junior staff. You are required to be an effective time manager looking for an opportunity to develop your people management and shift leading skills, be motivated and enthusiastic about your own professional development and open to undertaking further academic qualifications.
