Voted by the Sunday Times as the best place to live in Britain, Salisbury is an attractive place to live and work and really gives you the best of everything. With easy access to London and local airports, Salisbury also has one of the 31 UNESCO world heritage sites in the UK in the form of Stonehenge and in addition boasts a number of museums and famous landmarks which are well worth a visit. Alternatively, the city of Southampton is only a short train or car journey away or if you prefer the sea, Bournemouth is also accessible.

Could you deliver an outstanding experience for every patient? We are one of the best emergency departments in the country (CQC ED patient survey) and we are recruiting motivated and dynamic band 5 staff nurses. We have a committed nursing and medical team providing care in a bright, modern and spacious environment.

We work closely with the ambulance service and specialist teams both within the hospital and in the community to ensure that we provide the right care, at the right time, so if you have a passion for nursing and have at least 1 years post registration experience in an acute setting we want to hear form you!

We are an integrated paediatric department. If you are a Registered Sick Childrens nurse with 1 years post registration experience we would also welcome you to apply. Any successful applicant must be prepared to work with adults as well as children and complete adult competencies.

We offer a two week supernumerary training programme covering all areas of the department and a developmental programme during the first 12 months tailored to your experience which includes triage, conflict resolution, level 3 safeguarding, venepuncture and cannulation, mentor team days, CBRN / major incident training, application of PoP casts and resuscitation competencies. We also support training courses such as ALS and EPALS.

Whilst we serve a mostly rural population we are also a designated Trauma unit and have a track record in handling major incidents successfully which offers a varied and challenging patient workload and the number of attendances is growing. We currently see approximately 50,000 patients per year.

We can offer a variety of working opportunities including full or part time covering 24hr shift patterns which are family friendly (evenings, early/late etc) usually over 3-5 days / nights per week (hours dependant).

This is an excellent time to join our expanding team and become involved in developing new processes to meeting the changing demands of emergency care.
