Our size and resources enable us to offer a range of attractive benefits as well as unparalleled education and development opportunities for staff at all levels.

Elderly Medicine Staff Nurses: BAND 5

University College Hospital in London is looking for enthusiastic and motivated Band 5 nurses to work in our Internal Medicine Service

Do you have a passion to work in this exciting specialty? Would you like to work in an environment that is designed to meet the needs of older people? Come and join a great team of staff who pride themselves in the care they provide to this vulnerable patient group.

Speciality information: We have recently co-located our elderly medicine department on T10 ward here at UCH. Our ward and team are seen as the experts in providing top quality care to older people at UCLH. This most recent move offers us the opportunity to further develop our workforce through specialist educational and training packages supported by our Consultant Nurse for Older People and Older Adults Assessment Team.

T10 Ward is a mixed sex ward caring for acutely ill older adults. Many of these patients will have a diagnosis of dementia along with complex medical problems and long term condition management. Our patients are very dependent and rely on us to provide them with the highest standards of care to prevent such patient harms as pressure ulcers and falls. This is an exciting time to be part of this great team as we work towards meeting our same day emergency care goals and developing our service to meet the changing landscape as a result of Covid 19.

We offer full orientation and development for staff using the support of our dedicated Clinical Practice Facilitator. There are opportunities for staff to pursue academic courses at university and the potential for developing a career pathway in elderly medicine has recently increased with the addition of trainee Advanced Clinical Practitioner roles.

We are looking for committed and dynamic nurses with excellent communication skills and above all a real desire and passion to work with older people. This is an excellent opportunity to develop your skills and learn about a wide variety of medical problems including diabetes, renal, cardiac and respiratory. We offer training in IV therapy, cannulation, phlebotomy and male catheterisation with the addition of advanced delirium and dementia training and enhanced discharge planning skills.

We are looking for someone who is passionate about medical and elderly nursing, about delivering high standards and ensuring that our patients have a good experience whilst under our care. Newly qualified and nurses from non-acute backgrounds are welcome to apply.

This is an excellent opportunity to develop your skills as a professional nurse in a friendly and forward-thinking environment.

Please make sure you are available for the upcoming assessment day:

Tier 2 Certificate of Sponsorship

Applications from job seekers who require current Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the current Resident Labour Market Test which will be in place until the end of December 2020. UK Visas and Immigration requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UK Visas and Immigration website.

From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, have had to present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) are also subject to this requirement.
