Join us and become part of the most engaged workforce of any NHS trust in England, according to the latest national NHS Staff Survey results – for the second year running.

You will be joining a dynamic and forward-looking organisation in the heart of the capital where you can develop your career and broaden your horizons.

We think you will enjoy working for us but you don’t have to take our word for it – 79% of staff who took part in the latest national NHS Staff Survey would recommend Guy’s and St Thomas’ as a place to work.

Monday – Friday

The Pain Management Centre at Guy’s & St Thomas’ Hospital is one of the largest services of its type in the country. It provides a highly specialised and wide range of services, including a residential Pain Management programme and neuromodulation, to patients from local and regional areas.

We are looking for an experienced registered nurse to work in all areas of the pain management service. The post holder will work as a member of the pain multi-disciplinary team co-ordinating care and treatment of patients with acute and chronic pain. The post is rotational within the inpatient and out patient setting.

Essential to this post is the maintenance of clinical excellence, underpinned by evidence based practice. The post holder will also be expected to provide professional advice to other health care professionals caring for patients experiencing chronic pain and work across departmental, divisional and Trust boundaries to provide a patient-centred seamless service. The post holder will have an opportunity to assist in the development of nursing pain education and research at a local, national and international level.

This post will enable the applicant to have the opportunity to develop highly specialised skills within a multi disciplinary setting working in an outpatient (Pain Management Centre), Inpatient (Acute pain), theatre and pain management programme (INPUT) setting, where nursing intervention is required for the care and treatment offered to patients with chronic and acute pain.

This post also requires an appreciation of the complex issues facing patients with chronic pain and an ability to show initiative and understanding in providing support and care for these patients. Excellent communication and team working skills are, therefore, essential.
