Job Description

We are currently seeking Surgical Nurse’s (RN; RGN) who can work in Surgical Hospitals and Acute Care Units. The flexible hours of work are ideal for those looking for a better work life balance, with the option of working early, late or night shifts. Ambition24hours offer attractive pay rates up to £34.70 per hour depending on skills and grades required.

You will need the ability to think critically. You will be alert to subtle changes in patients' behaviors or symptoms that help them detect surgical complications, such as bleeding or infection. Excellent communication skills are essential, as nurses are often the primary caregivers for surgical patients and must communicate with fellow health team members as well as the patients and their families. A successful surgical nurse possesses empathy for patients, especially when it comes to pain management. Nearly all patients experience some pain or discomfort after surgery, and a nurse must monitor patients carefully to create and manage an effective pain control regimen.

  • Educating patients on surgical procedures.
  • Providing preoperative, inter-operative and post operative care to patients.
  • Managing pain.
  • Discharge planning.
  • Working closely with other healthcare professionals.
  • Maintaining a patient’s physical and psychosocial health.
  • Acting in accordance with the NMC Code of Professional Conduct at all times
  • Observing and recording the condition of patients
  • Complying with all infection prevention and control policies and ensure an environment conducive to the continuing prevention and control of infection for all staff, patients and visitors

To apply for any of our vacancies you must:

  • Have a minimum of 6 months resent experience within a hospital/surgical environment
  • Have an up to date NMC pin
  • Be able to complete satisfactory CRB/POVA checks
  • Be authorised to work in the EEC
