The Neurosciences Department is nationally renowned forward thinking and innovative with a focus on improving services for the future.  A career in Neurosciences would offer a challenging and supportive career with the opportunity to gain a breadth of knowledge and skill in your chosen area.

We support and promote compliance with mandatory training alongside internal training and development opportunities.

Across all of our wards we strive to ensure high standards of care are delivered whist working closely with other teams in the hospital to eliminate pressure sores and reduce incidences of infection. Opportunities are in place for learning on the job and theoretical training sessions to enhance knowledge and develop each individual.
