9th Sep 2019

Are you a nurse looking at returning to practice? A nurse thinking of a new challenge? Are you about to qualify and can’t decide what area you want to work in? The acute Elderly Care wards may just be the place for you.

As part of our ongoing recruitment at the Trust, Sandwell and West Birmingham is holding a recruitment day on 12 September at the Postgraduate Centre on City Hospital’s grounds from 10:00 to 14:30. We are looking for Band 5 staff nurses who are hardworking, motivated and committed to the delivery of high quality care to our patients.

This is an exciting time in Elderly care as our team are at the start of putting a focus on Frailty, introducing competencies for our staff nurses with the Clinical Frailty Scale in mind and incorporating new training to challenge and enhance their skill sets. Frailty is a part of the NHS long term plan and a subject that will become ever more important within our ageing population.

Sandwell and West Birmingham NHS Trust presently has four Acute Medical Elderly care wards: at City Hospital there is both D11 – a 21 bed Male ward, and D26 – a 21 bed female ward. Whilst at Sandwell Hospital there is Lyndon 5 – a 33 bed mixed gender ward and Lyndon 4 – a 34 bed mixed gender ward.  With the development of the Midland Metropolitan Hospital a future factor in the facilities we will provide.

If you’re interested, pop in to see and speak with the team on the day, visit our wards and have an interview to potentially secure a position with the team.
