Job overview

An exciting opportunity has arisen to join the nursing team on our adult cardiac ward (E3 Blue). E3 Blue is an adult cardiac ward with a specialist focus on heart failure and therefore has strong links with the heart failure team. We also care for patient’s post cardiac surgery and cardiac interventions.

Ward ethos: ‘We pledge to care for you, the patient, as we would want our relatives to be cared for. We will treat you as an individual and aim to reach the best possible outcome. We will achieve this by working together, involving you and your loved ones in decisions that are made and by using the expertise of other members of the multidisciplinary team as required. We will continue to strive to maintain our high standards of care by furthering the knowledge of our staff and listening to your concerns. You are at the heart of what we do.’
