Could you provide the best person centred care and support to patients, their families and carers?

A sub-tropical island of spectacular and beautiful landscapes in the South Atlantic with a warm and friendly population of 4,500, St Helena is a self-governing overseas territory of the UK. It’s now poised for transformation with the recent opening of a brand new international airport offering scheduled commercial air access. The 30-bed General Hospital in the capital, Jamestown, covers all areas of acute medical and surgical care.

You will offer enhanced nursing including on-call duties in a specialist area of practice such as Theatre, Anaesthetics, Radiography, Oncology, A&E or Cardiology.You must implement and maintain quality evidence-based nursing care using best practice guidance, through assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation of care. With a strong commitment to team working and the development of junior colleagues you will supervise the unqualified staff, mentor the student nurses and teach junior staff, including classroom teaching. Overtime, shift work, unsocial hours and night duty will require a flexible attitude.

You will regularly take charge of hospital patient care in the absence of medical officers and senior nursing staff. You will also help with the development of policies, procedures and protocols and be encouraged to identify opportunities for improvement in care, together with insight into how these can be achieved.

Currently a UK Registered Nurse Degree Level 1 on the Live NMC Register, or with equivalent qualification and registration, you should have full time experience in an Acute General Hospital within the last decade, a trained mentor with updated ALS.
