We are looking to recruit a qualified nurse into a full time 37.5 hour post which includes nights and weekend based on  internal  rotation in line with Trust policy.

The role of the successful candidate would include taking charge of the 9 bedded in patient unit and participating in all patient care needs and using the IT systems to ensure accurate  documentation is completed.  It would also involve rotating onto the district nursing team to support patients in our community by providing wound care, venepuncture, insulin administration and holistic assessments etc.

Working for our organisation

We operate from three main hospitals-Furness General Hospital (FGH) in Barrow, the Royal Lancaster Infirmary (RLI), and Westmorland General Hospital (WGH) in Kendal, as well as a number of community healthcare premises including Millom Hospital and GP Practice, Queen Victoria Hospital in Morecambe, and Ulverston Community Health Centre. 

FGH and the RLI have a range of General Hospital services, with full Emergency Departments, Critical/Coronary Care units and various Consultant-led services. 

WGH provides a range of General Hospital services, together with an Urgent Treatment Centre, that can help with a range of non-life threatening conditions such as broken bones and minor illnesses.
