As an organisation, we offer;

  • support and in-service training with the wider Allied Health service
  • a very supportive working environment

If you feel you demonstrate the qualities listed above and are keen to be involved in this exciting new ward development we welcome your applications.

We are happy to consider applications from both new graduates and experienced clinicians. Experience in general surgical/orthopaedics is also desirable.

Closing date: open until filled
