Schoen Clinic London have a fantastic opportunity for a PACU Staff Nurse to join their team on a full-time permanent basis.

Schoen Clinic Orthopaedic and Spinal Hospital London

Description

We are looking for Intensive Care trained nurses to join our Post Anaesthetic Care Unit (PACU) team. Perhaps you want a break from an acute Intensive Therapy Unit but want to maintain your advanced skills and develop new ones? Our PACU nurses have an engaging and varied role working across PACU, recovery and interventional areas. You will have the opportunity to undertake additional training in safer sedation and support procedures in theatres and the interventional suite as well as working in Post Anaesthetic Care Unit and recovery.

We are a purpose-built, award winning* private hospital situated in the Harley Street medical area in central London. We specialise in orthopaedic, spinal and pain and have many of the country’s leading surgeons and physicians working with us.

We employ Consultant Intensivists rather than Registered Medical Officers to provide medical cover to the whole hospital. You will be working with a highly motivated professional and caring team. Most importantly you will have time to deliver the highest standards of care.
