Division of Medicine
If variety and career progression is what you are after then the Division of Medicine is the place to be. We are looking for band 5 Registered Nurses and nursing assistants who inspire others, who work harder because they want to, not because they have to. This is your opportunity to join us on our journey as we continue to build our caring and compassionate workforce for the future.
Our in-patient service provides care for a diverse number of specialities, including Acute Respiratory, Gastro-intestinal, and Liver failure; healthcare for older adults; cystic fibrosis, and acute stroke services. Patient safety and quality are of the utmost importance to us, while we ensure our patients have a positive experience of care. By joining us, you will have fantastic opportunities to develop your nursing skills as you progress in your career.

Emergency Department (ED)
Our Adult Emergency Department treats 60,000 patients a year for acute conditions. The department has a major and minor injury area, an observation unit, and a resuscitation room. We seek experienced nurses who relish the challenges of working in an inner city adult department and wish to develop their emergency skills further. In return we offer a dedicated departmental Induction followed by regular educational opportunities.
In addition to this, our division is responsible for the dynamic and busy inner city Emergency Department where we see an average of 200 patients a day, as well as elective admissions, out-patient departments and rehabilitation at our South Bristol Community Hospital.
We are continually developing our ‘front door’ services such as Ambulatory Care, GPSU and AAU to avoid hospital admissions. We have large state of the art OPAU (Older person Assessment Unit) and AMU (Acute Medical assessment Unit) to improve patient’s pathway, meaning that we are working closer with our primary care colleagues to achieve this.
The Bristol Heart Institute
The BHI is one of the hospital’s flagship buildings and is home to leading-edge 21st century care.
We are proud of the care we provide at our Adult and Paediatric theatres.
Specialised services for the Region have now been centralised here at Bristol Children’s Hospital, to create a Centre of Excellence.
