A very exciting opportunity has arisen in our Gastroenterology Unit. We are looking for a Staff Nurse to join our team who is passionate about safety and the delivery of exceptional quality care.

About us –

Gastroenterology Services have had the opportunity to move to a new unit based on Doyle and Wilson within the Trust and have new and exciting opportunities for learning and development.

We are a 28 inpatient, mixed sex ward which consists of 4 bays and 8 side rooms, with 4 elective admissions throughout the week.

Within the team, we operate as part of an extended MDT team. We have Specialist nurses in all areas of gastroenterology including IBD, HPB, Nutrition and Hepatology, who are based on the unit and in reach. We also have an alcohol care team who deliver a 7 day service and have regular input from Social Workers, Physiotherapists, Dietitians, Speech and Language Therapists, and Occupational Therapists.

Locally known as A9, Gastroenterology is now based on Doyle and Wilson wards and consists of 14 Consultants, all specialising in different conditions and work on a rota covering the ward. Due to our vast amount of Consultants and their specialist knowledge in different fields, we are fortunate to deliver a consultant led inpatient service 7 days a week.

This optimizes patient’s care allowing them to be treated in a timely manner and promote patient flow. We feel that this enables staff to feel confident that the patients receive the best possible care.

We offer great opportunities and would encourage staff to develop their skills with all the extra training we offer in order to progress their career including:
• Venepuncture and Cannulation
• Development in specialist interests
• Specialist GI Link nurses

• Male Catheterisation

We are a supportive team and have a door-is-always-open approach. We operate a 24-hour service with shift times of 7am-7.30pm and 7pm-7.30am. We are looking for a full time member to join our team, with day and night rotation.
