  • Complete handover documents in order to handover to the early ward team in the morning
  • Listening to and supporting the ward co-ordinator in delivery of patient care.
  • Recovering patients from sedation/anaesthesia.
  • Using our in-house computer system to book discharge appointments, visits and clinician phone calls.

  • Unlimited career development opportunities, due to our dynamic team structure which is focused on areas of expertise
  • CPD days, allowance and RCVS & BVNA fees paid
