Registered Nurse – Stroke Pathway – Band 5

Are you unsure if you want to work in an Acute Hospital or Community setting?

Not ready to specialise, but keen to learn?

Look no further we have a brand new exciting role here in Somerset joining the collaboration of Somerset Partnership NHS Foundation Trust & Taunton & Somerset NHS Foundation Trust.

This newly created role will be a 2 year programme working within the Acute & Community setting. As a Stroke nurse you will be rotating between Dunkery Ward at Musgrove Park where you will care for patients who have been admitted into the acute hospital. Dunkery Ward is a 23 Bedded unit; this includes 4 hyper acute beds in its HASU & also part of the national stroke research network.

Following this you will go into a community hospital setting to help rehablitise patients and get them back into their home. Here we have a positive, pro-active approach towards the Home First Pathway, working hard to ensure the patient experience in our community hospitals are both short and supported.

Your final exciting rotation will be in the ESD Team, this award winning county-wide service helps patients who have suffered stroke or a brain injury to leave hospital more quickly by providing them with their essential rehabilitation at home.

During this rotational experience you will be working alongside other professionals within the multidisciplinary team; ensuring high quality care and effective communication is maintained at all times.

Your clinical knowledge base will grow in various healthcare settings having the opportunity to support patients through their entire process of Hospital to Community & back to their homes. You’ll be able to share your experience as you progress through your rotational programme learning & putting new skills into practice daily.
