Come and join us at a pivotal moment in Royal Brompton & Harefield's history. The only UK hospital to be ranked by Newsweek in the top 10 globally for cardiology has some exciting plans and we want you to be part of our journey. In January 2020 we announced our strategy to merge with Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust (proposed to complete in early 2021) as a first step towards our vision of creating a brand new centre that will be the global leader in the research into and treatment of heart and lung disease in patients from pre-birth to old age. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to help to shape that vision and we want you to be a part of it.

We are passionate about what we do and the patients we serve. We are an equal opportunities employer and our patients are rich in diversity. We recruit to ensure we build a similarly diverse mix across our workforce. We are a values led organisation and we are rightly proud of our world class reputation and our people.

This is a great opportunity to develop your clinical experience and skills in a diverse and fast-paced environment. As a band 5 staff nurse you will have the opportunity to provide specialist care to patients with a variety of cardiac conditions.

About us

Harefield Hospital's Acute Cardiac Care Unit is a 40 bedded specialist cardiac centre caring for people who require cardiac investigations and interventions such as Angioplasty (Primary and Elective), Electrophysiology studies, TAVI, Ablations and Pacemakers/Devices. We also care for patients who have heart failure and those requiring end of life care. Our primary angioplasty service is one of the busiest in the country and we pride ourselves on the aftercare provided to patients following their MI.

The ward has two Practice Educators who provide excellent support and training. Each member of staff benefits from in-house training days and has the opportunity to apply for post graduate courses. The ward also benefits from input from specialist nurses, who are an excellent source of information, as you develop your knowledge.

ACCU has been shortlisted for the Nursing Times Student Nurse Placement of the Year (2018), further confirmation of the supportive environment and vast number of learning opportunities available on the ward.

About you

We need enthusiastic, open minded nurses who are keen to work at the leading edge of cardiothoracic practice in a lively, fast-paced ward setting. If you want to be a part of an exceptional team, share your experience with a supportive team and grow in the role, we would love to hear from you.
