Job Description

If you have applied for a post please ensure you check your e-mails and NHS Jobs account regularly. Any correspondence may be by e-mail only. Please note; If you have a hotmail account it is advisable to ensure you check your NHS Job account regularly, as we have experienced some technical difficulties with this in the past.

An opportunity has arisen within the Elective Orthopaedic unit at Bradford Royal Infirmary for Band 5 Staff Nurses, and we are now looking for highly motivated individuals to join our team.

Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is committed to ensuring that patients are at the center of all we undertake; delivering safe healthcare, of the highest quality, at all times. In order to continue providing care at this level, we are looking to recruit the right people, who are able to play their part in meeting these demanding targets.

Ward 28, essentially is an elective orthopaedic unit. We are a busy 28 bedded ward offering care to patients requiring elective orthopaedic surgery. However, we also support trauma patients when they reach their rehabilitation stage in their care pathway. This requires our staff to have excellent assessment skills and the ability to prioritize a busy workload. The ward is modern and up to date, offering an excellent environment for our staff to practice and develop their skills, in order to further benefit our patients. In addition to the ward we have a separate admission unit where the patients begin their journey.

As part of our Nursing team, the successful candidates will work alongside our multi-disciplinary staff, delivering pre and post operative care, including joint school and rehabilitation in order to facilitate safe and early discharge. The ability to effectively work as part of a team is essential. Applicants should also have an interest in orthopaedics, trauma, rehabilitation and discharge planning.

Ward 28 is part of a wider directorate including the trauma admissions unit, plastic surgery, breast care and the York Suite (which incorporates private health care activity). You will be given the opportunity to understand each of these specialties within your role if you choose this pathway of development.

Applicants should have, or be waiting to receive UK Nursing registration (NMC). Previous experience of orthopaedics and trauma nursing is desirable but not essential as in house training will be given. Good time management and the ability to work under pressure are essential. A structured preceptorship period of training and development will be provided with the support of the training department. Please see job descriptions and person specifications for further details.

If you would like to be considered for a position within our team, please apply online. Interviews can be arranged at mutually convenient times following the shortlisting process, and those applicants meeting the interview criteria will be contacted in due course.

Should your application be successful we will require a reference/references covering a minimum period of 3 years from your current/most recent employer. Wherever possible provide an e-mail address for your referees.

If you are shortlisted we are required to check your documents to establish both your identity and your right to work in this country at interview. We require at least one item of photographic documentation.
