They are looking for a positive, hard working and keen to learn Full or Part-time RVN which will entail night duties and weekend cover with a lean towards surgery and anaesthesia.

They promote and encourage CPD (and will fund appropriate CPD generously). We try to nurture any interests that our nurses have and encompass it where we can in practice. They are pleased to say they have supported one of the nurses through her surgical advanced nursing diploma. Salary is competitive and they offer great benefits.
