Recruitment day for children's nurses at GWH

Posted: October 31, 2014

Come along to meet us on Saturday 8 November

Following a £250,000 investment in its children's services, Great Western Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is looking to hire 20 experienced children's nurses at an upcoming recruitment day. 

Taking place on Saturday 8 November between 10.00am and 2.00pm, the recruitment day is open to all registered paediatric nurses interested in working in the Children's Unit at GWH or the newly refurbished Paediatric Emergency Department.

Those coming along on the day will have the chance to meet the friendly senior paediatric team at GWH, have a tour of the Children's Unit and the Paediatric Emergency Department, before taking part in an interview. 

Adam Kirton, the Trust's Head of Recruitment and Resourcing, said: "This recruitment day is a fantastic opportunity for any registered nurse who are looking to broaden their horizons and take on a new challenge. 

"As one of the top three Trusts to work for in the south west, we are able to provide all our staff with excellent opportunities to develop their skills in the care of children across a variety of areas. 

"This means you will have the opportunity to spend your working hours rotating between the Children's Unit, the Paediatric Assessment Unit and the Paediatric Emergency Department. 

"We are committed to providing the young people of Swindon and Wiltshire with the best care and facilities possible, which is why we have invested a quarter of a million pounds into our children's services." 

In addition to the 30 paediatric nurses already providing care at GWH, the Trust currently has space to take on a further 20 children's nurses, either in a full time role or on a flexible basis. 

The Paediatric Emergency Department at GWH opened in June following a £1.2million redevelopment, which saw the creation of a separate waiting area and five private treatment cubicles.
