Are you an RSCN/RNCB with a minimum of 2 years acute experience including 1 years experience in A&E? Can you prioritise, multi task and keep calm under pressure? Are you looking for a job which is never the same two days running?

This is a great time to join our team and make a difference.

We are looking for a full time Band 6 nurse to join our team in the Children’s Emergency Department at Kingston Hospital.

We are a busy ED department seeing approx. 104,000 patients per year between Adult and Paediatric ED. The Children’s Emergency Department is based within the main Accident & Emergency department and sees over 27,000 children per year. We have a newly built Urgent Treatment Centre and a newly built Paediatric Resuscitation Bay. 

We focus on providing a welcoming and child friendly environment. You should have excellent communication and organizational skills, enthusiasm and passion to care for children and their carers. Applicants should demonstrate a child centered approach to their work. 

The Emergency Team at Kingston Hospital provides a supportive and caring environment to their staff. We take pride in our team and we are pleased to offer a flexible working environment. 

We are also committed to individual staff development. We have a robust development structure and onsite Education Centre. We are affiliated to a number of Universities within the areas of Surrey and London for ongoing studies, and are involved in the Capital Nurse project for training. We are about to open a simulation room within the unit which will allow for excellent training opportunities. 

The Hospital is based in Kingston upon Thames, a bustling riverside town on the borders of London and Surrey. Kingston offers a wide variety of bars, cafés, restaurants and clubs and shopping to rival central London. Richmond Park is just a 5 minute walk from the Hospital and the Hospital is well served by public transport, with Norbiton Station on the doorstep. This allows you to jump on a train and arrive in central London, 12 miles away, in less than 30 minutes.
