Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust are a committed multi- professional team who provide much-valued hospital and community services to residents in South East London. The Trust has built a good reputation as a place to enjoy job satisfaction and develop professional skills and experiences. Our people value the opportunity to work in a supportive culture and, we ensure our team are well rewarded for their contribution. By joining us now, you can play a role in shaping  our organisation that continues to put patient and client care first. Whatever the challenges ahead, we’re prepared to face them as one team.

At Queen Elizabeth Hospital we see Emergency Care as a specialty for nurses in which they can play a major contribution to patient care. We are currently expanding our specialist workforce to meet the modernisation programme that will see the Emergency Department grow.

The Clinical Decision unit is a 12 bedded 6 chair area for inpatients on the emergency pathway. The Clinical Decision Unit provides high quality patient care to assess a patient’s medical condition, organise appropriate tests and further management to determine their need for inpatient admission.

In order to provide the highest quality of care for our patients we welcome nurses who are honest, reliable, a good team player as well as really caring about the contribution they make to not only patient care but also to their own personal and professional development, working environment and colleagues.

As we have strong links with local Universities an amazing benefit to joing the team is that we are committed to delivering work-based educational initiatives.  We offer a band 5 development programme which includes in house accredited Foundations of Emergency Nursing Course. 

If you would love to be part of a fun, supportive team then please apply today.
