A vacancy has arisen on the Gastroenterology and Liver Unit.  We provide acute care and specialised interventions for patients with diseases of the liver, pancreas and gastrointestinal tract. We also provide care for patients with mental health illness or dementia related to their medical conditions and our team includes mental health and adult nurses. Our aim is to provide high quality care and the successful applicant will need to be focused on educating and training staff to provide this care, act as a role model and represent the Ward Sister in her absence leading the nursing and medical teams. Specialty Care is constantly evolving and the successful applicant will take lead roles in projects to advance the services we provide.
