An exciting opportunity has arisen for a motivated Band 2 Healthcare Assistant with excellent communication skills to work as part of the Outpatient nursing team in the Medical/Surgical Outpatient Department.
Outpatient’s is a diverse, multidisciplinary environment which requires flexible and adaptable skills, an aptitude to learn and a motivation to develop your own skills.
If you are a dynamic individual who enjoys a challenge and would like to join a team who are passionate about providing high quality care to their patients, then we want to hear from you.
The successful candidate will be enthusiastic, motivated and committed to give high quality nursing care and be able to work autonomously as well as part of a team.
