The Elective care division includes emergency and elective surgery including specialities general surgery, breast, ENT, urology, orthopaedics, ophthalmology and rheumatology. This is inclusive of theatres including day-case. Endoscopy and the Critical care department. The division also provides clinical services departments such as radiology, laboratory medicine, pharmacy and out-patient departments. This makes for a vast and varied division of services with a common focus of providing safe and effective patient care.

Both units undertake long days/nights and internal rotation to night duty. We also offer rotation between ICU and HDU enabling you to experience both areas of Critical care Nursing.
We are fully supportive of the preceptorship programme and you will have a supernumerary period to support you in your induction. To support your ongoing development learning and development will be aligned with national competency for critical care nurses.

We offer a comprehensive preceptorship package and have a band 5 development package. Staff are supported during each of their shifts by an excellent team of nurses and each shift is led by a band 6 team leader to further support staff and decision making within the unit. With the help of our supportive teams and the practice developer we can facilitate a safe and comfortable transition for new and exciting learning and development. We have a designated practice educator nurse for Critical care who supports new staff and ensure all staff are up to date with competencies and skills training.
