We are responsible for running a family of ten hospitals across seven separate sites, providing a wide range of services from comprehensive local general hospital care through to highly specialised regional and national services.

We work closely with the Emergency Gynaecology Unit who are located on the same floor plan. This ward is an inpatient and day case ward for emergency Gynaecology surgical patients to be cared for pre and postoperatively until able to return home.

The post offers an exciting opportunity to develop skills with emergency Gynaecology patients, working alongside different members of the multidisciplinary team. This is an ideal opportunity for leadership and management development to successfully lead a nursing team to deliver excellent care and professional standards as part of a supportive directorate within Saint Mary's Managed Clinical Service.

To apply for this post you must have substantial experience at band 6 level and be a positive role model, looking for a new challenge or an opportunity to develop further in your nursing career.
