At the heart of the ward, you'll form a vital part of the team at the forefront of delivering direct care to our patients by communicating effectively and with compassion and assisting them with their personal needs and mobility, supporting with eating and drinking and recording observations.

If successful at interview you will need to complete a Key Skills Level 1 Assessment in Maths and English.
