Do you want to be part of brand new service from the beginning, creating something special in Bradford?
Our new complex needs care home, Wykewood, will open in June 2021 and will provide specialist nursing care for adults living with a range of complex and high acuity care needs. The start date will be W/C 11th May 2021.
Construction of the home started in March 2020, and is due to be completed in June 2021, bringing a £5million investment into the local area.
The home will have 40 large bedrooms - each with an en suite wet room - spread over three floors and surrounded by large landscaped gardens around the home. It'll care for 40 adults living with a range of complex needs including mental and physical health conditions.
With excellent career development and the unique opportunity to be part of a team where you can make the difference and every day better.
Wykewood wants highly motivated Senior RMN /RNLD or RGNs with a passion and desire to make a difference! We aim to deliver person centred and outcome focused care and strive to help those service users who are able to transition away from nursing care and back to community living.

You will lead the nurse team during your shifts; you will make certain that we fully meet medical, physical and emotional requirements of adults in your care. Ensuring compliance with our clinical governance framework, you will mentor and motivate colleagues, champion safety and dignity and drive continuous improvement.
