D2East and the emergency frailty unit is a ward specialising in elderly care and the assessment of patients to have safe and early discharges within 72hours.

We are currently working within the nursing principles, have daily consultant ward rounds Monday - Friday and a multi disciplinary meeting with input from the frailty team to facilitate this. We are working closely with our colleagues from RAID to make the ward more dementia friendly and patients stay as pleasant as possible.

Training and development is very important to us and new staff will have access to the corporate induction and Journey of excellence programmes. We also have a specific EFU competency booklet and provide regular study sessions and opportunities to spend time in different areas i.e. the frailty teams to improve knowledge and awareness of services available.

We are currently looking for enthusiastic and motivated staff with a passion for elderly care and discharge planning to join our team.

The ability to speak Welsh is desirable for this post.
