An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Charge Nurse in Ward 15 Victoria Hospital Kirkcaldy.

Ward 15 is a 26 bedded Acute Medicine of the Elderly ward which specialises in the acute care of patients with frailty syndromes.

You will help drive local and national practice developments and demonstrate a commitment to leading person centred, safe and effective care to enable delivery of a positive experience of care for those persons who require this level of inpatient care.
With the increasing number of frail older people in the population, there is a real focus on how Health and Social Care partners work together to support older people.
