An exciting opportunity has arisen for a nurse to join our team on the Hyper Acute Stroke Unit and Acute Stroke Ward. We are looking for staff nurses to provide a dynamic approach to their work and demonstrate their commitment, drive and passion in an ever changing environment, caring for patients who have suffered a stroke.

The ward and unit are very busy environments, specialising in acute stroke interventions such as thrombolysis and thrombectomy. The unit is also soon to become the thrombectomy centre for the region, covering from Grimsby to York. The Hyper Acute Stroke Unit is the critical care area of the ward, providing the post holder with experience working alongside one the units’ four specialist band 6 HASU co-ordinators.

This will require the successful candidate to be enthusiastic in delivering excellent care and enhancing the patient experience. We require motivated and dedicated individuals to provide the very best in patient care, along with the ability to work efficiently within in a very busy environment. The post holder must have the desire to enhance their nursing skills within the speciality.

We have a dedicated multidisciplinary team who we are fortunate to have based on the ward. Therefore, you must possess great inter-personal skills and the ability to work within such a self-motivated and vibrant team.

You will have a supernumery period alongside a preceptorship package to ease you into your new nursing career. Our HASU co-ordinators, Stroke co-ordinators and Consultants also provide ongoing training sessions to develop skills and knowledge in relation to stroke care.

If you have the skills, attributes and enthusiasm we are looking for and want to be part of an ever developing specialist team, this post will be for you.
