A fantastic and exciting opportunity has arisen for a Staff nurse to work in our new, purpose built unit opening December 2018, alongside our dynamic clinical team within our new Same Day Emergency Care Unit 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, passionate and ambitious nurses who have good initiative, great communication, enjoy change and delivering new ideas as well as delivering exemplary care in an ambulatory setting. 

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

We deliver this as an multi- disciplinary team focusing on:

  • Patient safety and prevention
  • Telephone triage
  • Rapid access to essential diagnostics
  • 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. The Same Day Emergency Care Unit maintains strong relationships with the Emergency Department and Acute Medical Unit.

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.
