Are you ready to develop new generalist skills and build on your experience?
Could your nursing skills and experience help us to achieve our vision of becoming a centre of excellence in remote and rural healthcare?
NHS Orkney aspires to being a centre of excellence in remote and rural healthcare and we are keen to recruit a Senior Community Nurse who shares this vision to support our team on Stronsay and Westray.
The Orcades Practice (approx. 1,959 patients) consists of six single-handed island practices with GPs and Nurses providing 24/7 healthcare to the smaller islands of Orkney. Weekly Microsoft Team meetings enable clinicians to share knowledge and experience to overcome professional isolation and provide strong peer support.
The post holder will work as part of a small health and social care team who all work on a rotational basis and provide on-call cover when on shift. You will be accountable and responsible for the clinical and professional leadership of the Band 5 Community Nurse and be adaptable, resourceful, and confident to work without the resource of a hospital at hand. The role involves assessing and planning the health care needs of patients and families, monitoring the quality of care they’re receiving and be professionally accountable for delivery of care. Other duties will include treatment room activities and providing emergency cover as necessary.
If you would like to discuss the post, please contact Louise Byrne, Clinical Nurse Manager
