We are appealing for more emergency nurses after one of our emergency registrars was hailed a hero across the UK.
The last fortnight has highlighted the importance of staff in urgent and emergency care. Dr Tom Prichard, an emergency care registrar at the University Hospital of North Tees, made national headlines when he came to the rescue of a man who collapsed at a football match.
We couldn’t be prouder of Dr Tom Prichard, one of our A&E registrars, who came to the rescue after a fan collapsed at the Newcastle game yesterday.
Well done, Tom! 👏 https://t.co/lMuXTYgEqC

Now the Trust is looking for ten new permanent responsive care nurses, particularly those with an interest in urgent and emergency care.
Debbie Hall is lead nurse in the emergency department. She said: “We’ve got a brilliant opportunity to recruit some more nurses to join our emergency department.
“We’ve got lots of learning opportunities for nurses to develop emergency care skills.
“We like to involve our nurses in a lot of the decision-making in our teams to provide excellent patient care and an efficient service.”
It comes after an ambitious upgrade in the urgent and emergency care service, including:
- A streamlined triage service
- Increased capacity
- New patient rooms
- A state-of-the-art emergency paediatric department
The ten exciting emergency care posts at the University Hospital of North Tees will put patients first as part of a dynamic and well-established team.
The vacancies close on Monday 1 November at 11:59pm. For more information and details on how to apply, please visit our vacancies page.
