A fantastic and exciting opportunity has arisen in our new, dynamic and emerging team of nursing staff within AEC (Ambulatory Emergency Care) at UHS.

Our team is part of a national project transforming ambulatory services, which is one of the fastest growing areas across the NHS. This role will allow you to work in a diverse area, specialising in a range of acute medical problems, with great professional development opportunities. Being part of the national AEC project has enabled new ideas and changes to be implemented. We are looking for enthusiastic and experienced nurses who have good initiative, great communication, enjoy change and delivering new ideas as well as being passionate about exemplary care in ambulatory setting.

A typical day in AEC will see you providing initial assessment, triage and exemplary care to our patients through same day care.

We deliver this as a team focusing on:
o Patient safety and prevention
o Building long-term relationships with patients
o Telephone triage
o Rapid access to essential diagnostics
o Specialised consultant reviews

As a member of the team we will provide you with training opportunities to develop skills in history taking and physical assessment, taking an active role in seeing, treating, and discharging patients and communicating with members of the wider MDT. AEC maintains strong relationships with the Acute Medical Unit, which enables staff members to support in both areas, maintain core acuity skills.

If you are looking for a new challenge and are an enthusiastic and dynamic nurse with confidence to communicate effectively with all colleagues and enjoy working where you can try new ideas and no two days are the same, then the AEC team is for you.

For further information or to arrange an informal visit please contact Senior Sister’s Stephanie Gurney, Lucy Meany, Sam Linter or Jo Manliguez on 023 8120 3588.

About University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust:

University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust (UHS) is one of England's largest acute teaching trusts. We've recently been rated ‘Good’ by the CQC and in the latest national NHS Staff Survey we ranked seventh in the country for staff engagement, and fourth best nationally for our proportion of staff saying that they would recommend the hospital as a place to work or to receive care. One of our main objectives has been to become a top ten research trust, with the pharmacy department being an integral part of achieving this.

Staff benefits:

Staff can access discounts for local facilities such as local gyms and national discounts on everything from holidays to electricals. We have two nurseries that staff can use, one based on the Southampton General Hospital site (for UHS employees only) and one at the Western Community Hospital site (rated outstanding by Ofsted). Our modern, purpose-built nurseries provide regular childcare to children aged three months to school and have extended opening hours to help fit in with your schedule.
