The Emergency Departments at Brighton & Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust are looking for Emergency Nurse Practitioner/Emergency Practitioners to join our team of dedicated Emergency Nurse Practitioners. We are looking for this post to be a qualified and experienced ENP/EP within an emergency setting.
The trust has two Emergency Departments at The Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton and The Princess Royal Hospital in Haywards Heath. The RSCH site is a large department and is a major trauma centre, it has a dedicated Urgent Care Centre with a team of ENP’s, ED doctors and GP’s working there in a supportive environment to provide health care for patients presenting to the Emergency Department through assessment, diagnosis, management and treatment of their minor illness and injuries. This department does not see any paediatrics through its Emergency Department as the site has its own separate children’s Emergency Department based in the Royal Alex Children’s Hospital.
The Emergency Department at the PRH site is a smaller unit which does see paediatrics with minor illness and injuries as well as adults with a variety of complaints.
The team is supported by a lead Emergency Nurse Practitioner, Matron, Practice Educator and an ED Consultant with an interest in minor injuries/illness. The successful candidate would be expected to support students through the area from all disciplines including nurses, paramedics, paramedic practitioners and radiographers.
The departments work a variety of shifts and there is an expectation that the successful candidates will work across both sites although they will be mainly based at the RSCH site.
For an informal discussion or visit please contact Karen Turley, Matron for Emergency Care on 01444 441881 ext. 8347.
