The Acute Care Inpatient Team at St. Ann’s Hospital in Poole, Dorset have vacancies for a enthusiastic RMN on Haven Ward female PICU. Haven female PICU is a 5 bedded unit which provides care to women in acute crisis.
On Haven Ward we aim to provide a high level of effective and compassionate care, delivered by skilled and happy team members in a safe and secure environment. We utilise a range of interventions to ensure we adhere to best practice and provide excellent care to our patients at all times.
