Working as a nurse on F6 at Frimley Park
F6 specialises in elective surgery for orthopaedic patients, including 7 beds for trauma patients.
Our patients undergo a range or orthopaedic surgeries such as hip / knee replacements, shoulder surgery, spinal surgery and foot surgery. The ward has 1 senior sister (ward manager) and 6 sisters.
We are very proud of the relationship that has been built with the military staff over the years; they provide valuable support and an integral part of the ward team.
We have a joint replacement specialist nurse (JRSN) who delivers educational classes to patients who will be undergoing joint replacements prior to their surgery. Our JRSN also runs follow up clinics for selective elective total hip / knee replacement patients.
The ward prides itself on giving excellent patient centred care, supporting new starters, whilst working closely with the practice development team to achieve this. There is also an in house orthopaedic module available for trained nurses.
