Stoke Mandeville Hospital is holding a recruitment day for nurses to work at the National Spinal Injuries Centre.

In a review led by NHS medical director Sir Bruce Keogh earlier this year fears were raised about staffing levels at the spinal unit, with patients reportedly missing out on care as a result and staff morale said to be low.

Posts for band five and six nurses are being offered and there will be interviews on the day, which is being held between 9.30am and 2.30pm at the centre’s main reception area on December 4.

Doug Charlton, who recently joined the health trust as associate chief nurse, said: “Our nursing service is growing as we continue to develop the life-changing work that we do.

“Increasing our nursing workforce will ensure we continue to enhance the quality of our services and provide the best possible patient care.

“This is an excellent time to join our world renowned team and help shape the future of this dynamic service.”

Anyone interested in applying can get an application form from by December 2. These can also be filled out on the day.
