Nursing Assistant

Take a new look at Stroke care. Over the last 10 years there has been a significant change in the way people who have had a stroke are managed. The onset of stroke is now recognised as a medical emergency. Patients can now receive ‘clot busting’ treatment, clot retrieval and surgical intervention for haemorrhage.

The Hyper Acute Stroke Unit at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford is looking for motivated and enthusiastic Nursing Assistant to join us. We would love to hear from applicants wishing to develop a career in health care.

The successful applicant would be willing to develop or have a keen interest in Acute Stroke. Will be working closely with nursing staff and therapy staff to provide a consistent approach to individual patient’s rehabilitation needs working towards their short and long term goals.

In addition to the 10 Acute Stroke beds, we have 8 Hyper Acute monitored beds, taking patients directly from ED. There will be opportunities to be involved in the care of patients post thrombolysis, post thrombectomy and hemi-crainectomy as well as gaining knowledge and skills in acute rehabilitation.

The unit specialises in the acute care and patient’s ongoing rehabilitation is delivered in a different location. Our average length of stay is 5-7 days.

If you have high standards and the desire to work in an innovative and progressive environment, this is the opportunity for you!

The role will include the opportunity to:

· Complete the Health Care Certificate

· Build therapeutic relationships with patients and their families

· Be involved with patient experience projects on the ward

· Become involved in clinical governance on the ward.

· Potential to be supported into further study.

Closing Date: 4th November 2020
