The ward is 34 bedded which specialises in stroke and frail elderly care.  A new 4 bedded Acute Stroke Unit has recently opened which specialises in acute monitoring following thrombolysis. 

Main duties of the job

Main duties of the job include supporting the patient with personal care, nutrition and fluid intake.  Clinical support workers are expected to report to and support the registered nurses. Ensure the environment is kept clean and tidy. Follow the Infection Prevention guidance.

 

Working for our organisation

We operate from three main hospitals - Furness General Hospital (FGH) in Barrow, the Royal Lancaster Infirmary (RLI), and Westmorland General Hospital (WGH) in Kendal, as well as a number of community health care premises including Millom Hospital and GP Practice, Queen Victoria Hospital in Morecambe, and Ulverston Community Health Centre.

FGH and the RLI have a range of General Hospital services, with full Emergency Departments, Critical/Coronary Care units and various Consultant-led services.

WGH provides a range of General Hospital services, together with an Urgent Treatment Centre, that can help with a range of non-life threatening conditions such as broken bones and minor illnesses.

All three main hospitals provide a range of planned care including outpatients, diagnostics, therapies, day case and inpatient surgery. In addition, a range of local outreach services and diagnostics are provided from community facilities across Morecambe Bay.
