Opportunities have arisen in our specialist respiratory ward at St Bartholomew’s Hospital for band 5 RNs. The unit consists of a 21 bedded respiratory ward and 6 bedded cystic fibrosis unit. There is a team of clinical nurse’s specialists that support the ward in caring for this group of patients.
The ward specialises in caring for patients with BIPAP and has a very multidisciplinary approach. The unit has specialist asthma and allergy interest and also care for patients undergoing sleep studies. It is a tertiary centre for bariatric patients.
Adjacent to the main respiratory ward is a new Cystic Fibrosis (CF) unit (4E). CF is the most commonly occurring genetic condition in Caucasians. Thanks to the commitment of strong multidisciplinary teams, such as ours at St Bartholomew’s hospital, our patients are living for longer. Come and join our team and contribute to caring for this unique group of patients. It’s not all about the lungs, CF affects many organs and systems in the human body, including; the pancreas, liver, genitourinary system and psychological difficulties. Working as part of a close team is a rewarding experience and offers you the opportunity to enhance the lives of people living with this complex life-long condition.
Working as part of a broader CF team would offer you the opportunity to develop skills in managing complex psychological issues related to adolescent medicine, participate in care planning during transition from paediatric to adult care and also with palliative care with our patients with advance lung disease. Working in this area, there is never a dull moment.
We are looking for motivated and caring staff that are keen to come to a ward that has a very multidisciplinary environment and who will be proactive to support the senior nursing team develop the ward and enhance the patient experience
