There are few careers as rewarding as nursing frail complex patients, providing an opportunity to treat multiple conditions and putting support in place to meet their complex discharge needs.

We are a friendly team who go out of our way to support each other, seeing our colleagues as an extended family.

If you join us on Ward 10 you will be joining a passionate, friendly and motivated team, committed to providing the best possible care and treatment to our patients.
