The University Hospital of Hartlepool is to host an open day event for experienced scrub nurses and operating department practitioners.

The open day Saturday, June, 22, will take place from 10am until 2pm. It will provide an opportunity to explore the hospital's facilities, meet the surgical team and learn about career opportunities and current jobs on offer.

Early this year, the hospital which is operated by North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust, was awarded surgical hub status. The NHS England accolade means the hospital will offer a dedicated service for people needing non-urgent surgery including orthopaedic operations such as hip and knee replacements as well as gynaecology, surgical and breast procedures.

Senior Nurse Deborah Harris said: "This is a fantastic team. We pride ourselves on being supportive and working together in order to provide every patient with great care.

"The open day is a chance for scrub nurses and operating department practitioners to meet us, get a feel from the department and hopefully submit an application to come and work alongside us."

Theatre sister Linda Robinson added: "I absolutely love working here. I started off as a scrub nurse and I'm now a theatre sister. So you can climb up that ladder here. It so exciting!"
