Frimley Health is a Trust where great care and great careers go hand in hand. We’re three hospitals working closely with each other and with the communities we serve in Surrey, Berkshire, Hampshire and Buckinghamshire  - our organisation has brought Heatherwood and Wexham hospitals into the fold of Frimley Park Hospital and its wider community services.

You’ll find the highest standards of clinical excellence across our locations and a friendly, supportive, open culture that brings everyone together. For our team it means a great day-to-day working experience – in a Trust with strong leadership, a clear sense of direction and an exciting vision for the future. The investment and changes ahead make this an exciting place to be. You can play your part in delivering exceptional patient care, while continuing to grow, develop and progress through first class learning and training.

An exciting opportunity has arisen on Ward 5 in Wexham Park Hospital. Ward 5 is a 36 bedded ward specialising in providing high standards of care and complex management of patients suffering from Endocrine conditions.

The Endocrine department specialises in diabetic problems involving limbs and wounds as well as those associated with poor compliance. Many to the problems we deal with occur with because of poor insulin control. The ward also cares for individuals recently diagnosed with an endocrine disorder, such as Addison’s or problems associated with the thyroid, or complications. We provide care and management of critically ill patients experiencing DKA and those requiring significant interventions and lifestyle adjustments in dealing with their long term condition.

We aim to offer a holistic service that is tailored to meet individual patient needs. The ward has its own dedicated multidisciplinary team, ward based consultants and medical team, physiotherapy and occupational therapy teams, clinical specialist nurses, tissue viability nurses, vascular clinical nurse specialist, critical care outreach and lead nurse support.

If you are interested in working in a dynamic, fast paced and supportive working environment with an excellent team, we would love to hear from you.
