Queens Medical Centre (QMC) Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust is a regional centre for emergency and major trauma care. Our Emergency Department is one of the busiest in the country providing care for an average of 550 patients per day.
Central to our service are the Nurses, Care Support Workers (CSW) and Emergency Department Assistants (EDA) working alongside clinicians and other professional colleagues to ensure our patients receive high quality care which encompasses patient safety, clinical effectiveness and patient experience. There is now an increasing diversity of nursing roles required in emergency care settings, demanding specialist and advanced skills and knowledge. Each brings a significant contribution to the multiprofessional team in the modern emergency care environment.
Joining the emergency department as a nurse means that you will start on the foundation nurse induction programme. Throughout your time at ED you will also undertake the Emergency Care Skills Course (ECSC) which covers early assessment, minor injuries, suturing, critical care skills and leadership.
If you are joining us as an allied healthcare professional (CSW/EDA) you will also undertake a 4 week induction programme which includes a combination of theory and clinical shifts.
