Exciting developments are happening in the Neurology and Stroke Departments at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals; We are committed to driving our services forward, so need a motivated and dedicated team to help us achieve our vision to become a recognised centre for Neuroscience.

We are looking for enthusiastic team players to join us, as we are creating a number of new, exciting Neuroscience Nursing roles to complement our existing team. Joining us now in will give you the opportunity to be involved in establishing Neuroscience at NNUH. As we grow, we will be creating new roles within the department giving unrivalled opportunities for career progression and development.

To deliver our ambition we want to improve our established services as well as respond to innovative service developments; such as deep brain stimulation, thrombectomy, and early psychological support for patients and carers. Joining our collaborative team will give you the opportunity to work across both the hyper acute and acute units.

We are in the process of expanding our neuroscience area to allow for stroke hyper-acute, acute neurology and stroke patients to be cared for in 1 dedicated area; which includes a brand new, specialist rehab area attached to the unit.

Working in our team will see you caring for a wide range of patients including:

– Acute stroke patients from admission to the Hyper-acute phase through to the acute phase.

– Neurological conditions including; MS, MND, Parkinsons and patients with Head Injury and/or multiple neurological conditions.

– Designated Medical Area for patients with tracheostomy.

As well as our expansion, our team also has the luxury of a clinical educator who works closely with the management team to ensure every member of the team feels supported and has access to all opportunities to further develop their clinical skills and knowledge.

In return for your hard work, we can offer you:

  • Full and part time positions
  • Generous welcome and relocation packages (subject to completion of probationary period)
  • Rotation opportunities around the unit
  • Support for nurses looking to develop their career into specialist or managerial roles

So, if you have a keen interest in Neuroscience – come and join us on our specialised and rewarding unit!

Why Norwich?

In Norwich a staggering 77% of people say they love their job. Although less than 2 hours from London and serviced by excellent transport links, Norwich is one of few UK cities that still retain a strong local identity and with that a strong sense of community – people walk down the street and say hello to each other, baristas remember our coffee order, you get to know about interesting local projects.

This strong sense of self along with excellent shopping, eating out, affordable house prices and excellent schooling is why Norwich has been ranked by the Guardian as the best city to work in.
