An exciting and challenging opportunity has arisen within the Minor Injury Unit (MIU) at the Royal Gwent Hospital for band 5 triage nurses. The MIU is a standalone, nurse led unit and deals with adults and children (over the age of 1 year old) with minor injuries. The MIU is a busy city centre unit open 24/7, seven days a week. The role of the triage nurse includes triage and treatment of patients attending the MIU, supporting the Emergency Nurse Practitioners (ENPs) in their role, redirection of patients to other services, and care of the unwell self presenting patient. The MIU works closely with the team in ED GUH as well as the Urgent primary Care team to ensure patients are seen by the most appropriate service. The MIU at RGH is a modern purpose built department providing a fit for purpose environment. As part of your role you may be required to rotate to the other MIU's within the Health Board.
The Clinical Futures model is extending Aneurin Bevan University Health Board’s successful implementation of its Care Closer to Home initiatives, strengthening and promoting its services in the community as well as centralising care of the most critically ill patients in the brand new state-of-the art Grange University Hospital.
We would like to offer you the opportunity to come and be part of our supportive and experienced team and join us in our continuous efforts to deliver high quality emergency care to patients presenting with a broad spectrum of conditions. If you would like the opportunity to really make a difference to the care and treatment patients receive then this is the role for you.
You will be supported by a team of experienced ENP's and your continuous learning and development will be facilitated by a highly motivated team. All staff have personal mentors and a competency based development plan.
We care for our patients 7 days a week, 24 hours a day and can consider a number of working patterns to support work life balance of our staff. A degree of flexibility would be required to meet the needs of the service.
