Job description

Job responsibilities


The Wessex neurological centre (WNC) provides a dedicated, integrated 24-hour acute neurosurgical, neurological, spinal and stroke assessment, investigation and treatment service. Sitting within a large teaching hospital, it has clear priorities for maintaining high standards of care and developing specialist services for the community and purchasers of the former Wessex region, West Sussex and the Channel Islands.

We support our staff, offering a variety of opportunities for career progression. When it comes to careers we are committed to developing yours. We support both professional and personal development, recognising its importance in delivering a quality service.

We offer the exciting opportunity of a neurosciences course either uncredited or at degree or masters level. The course typically runs over a 6 month period with taught sessions, practice based competency and assignments. The neuro course is fundamental for future career progression to senior roles such as ward leader, advanced practitioner and clinical nurse specialist.

The neuro course is delivered within the Wessex neuroscience centre by the education team supported by the multi-disciplinary team. The programme covers all common neurology and neurosurgery conditions such as stroke, head injury, epilepsy, neuro-oncology and spinal pathology.

Whilst studying for the course we are able to offer a rotation within the Wessex neurological centre or you could be based in a speciality area. UHS is a large University teaching hospital with clear priorities for maintaining high standards of care; investing in our staff is one way of delivering the high quality service. When it comes to careers we are committed to developing yours.
