Diabetes & Endocrinology

Ward 409 is an 18-bed ward providing all aspects of nursing care for patients with Endocrine, Diabetes and general medical disorders.

By working on this ward you develop knowledge of a wide range of these disorders, including causes and treatments, and we will support you in using this knowledge to become a highly-trained nursing professional, able to care for patients as part of the wider multi-disciplinary team.

You will experience challenging tissue viability cases, involving dressing regimes which may require vascular interventions, and will have the opportunity to shadow Specialist Tissue Viability Nurses. You will be trained in the safe use of insulin and continuous insulin infusions while working with our Specialist Diabetes Nurses. You will also support patients through complex discharges involving a network of health and social care professionals.

Through working on the endocrine and diabetes ward you will develop skills to support health promotion and learn about the importance of nutrition, both of which will help you deliver care for our patients.

Some of our patients are involved in clinical trials run by our diabetes research nurses. We actively participate in piloting new initiatives, which helps to improve the experience of our patients and deliver evidence-based practice.

We have a clinical educator who supports all out nurses with their training requirements. They will work with you to develop an individual learning contract, enabling you to smoothly transfer any of your current skills into a new setting.

We’re looking for highly motivated nurses who are passionate about high standards of patient care. You must have excellent verbal and written communication skills and, above all, an enthusiasm to make a difference for our patients.
