We are looking to recruit Band 6's to join our friendly, busy team on the Primary Stroke Centre, (PSC) at Fairfield General.

The position would suit an experienced Band 5, with experience in either stroke care or acute medicine or existing Band 6's who wish to further develop themselves. Successful candidates will be supported to develop their knowledge and skills in the care of the acute stroke patient including thrombolysis and thrombectomy care.
