Advanced Clinical Practitioner - Long Term Conditions
Sirona care & health CIC
This job is now closed
Our Integrated Network Teams (INTs) deliver out of hospital care to people in their own homes or community clinics. We provide these services to people who are registered with a GP within South Gloucestershire. The INTs are aligned to Sirona Localities, and these, in turn, are aligned to groups of GP practices, known as Primary Care Networks.
Advanced Clinical Practitioners (ACPs) - Long Term Conditions are experienced, specialist clinicians with advanced clinical skills, case management techniques and shared decision-making, who support people meeting criteria that denote very high intensity use of health care services. With specialist intensive support, these service users are able to remain safely at home and have more choice about their health care. Case management is key for the support of people with long term conditions. This role requires expert evidence based practitioner knowledge gained from extensive front line, clinical leadership and decision making and managerial experience
The Locality teams are made up of:
- Advanced Clinical Practitioners Urgent and Long-term Conditions
- Community Nurses
- Community Therapists
- Rehabilitations Support Workers and Healthcare Assistants
Main duties of the job
The purpose of this role is to work autonomously as a specialist practitioner to identify and case manage individuals with highly complex needs who require intensive community support, within their Primary Care Network (PCN) in partnership with the Integrated Network Team (INT) and the primary care team to prevent avoidable admissions and facilitate timely discharges from hospital into the community setting and, where possible, improving their quality of life.
As an advanced practitioner you will provide a service that focuses on achieving and demonstrating overall improvements in health care for people who are frail and have several long-term conditions. You will also provide clinical leadership and direction to the INT, supporting the Locality Manager and Assistant Locality Manager to deliver excellent evidence based clinical outcomes. To provide organisational and service resilience, you may be expected to cross cover other teams or services, both within the locality and across Sirona services.

This post is not an Advanced Practice role that is mapped to the HEE Multi-professional Framework for Advancing Practice. These posts are currently under review and are likely to undergo a name change in the near future. This is because these roles do not require candidates to work across all 4 pillars of Advanced Practice to MSc level and are therefore banded at AFC Band 7. They do, however require a skillset working at or towards MSc level in the Advanced Practice Clinical Pillar. This role will not be eligible for training funding for an MSc in Advanced Practice however training may be supported depending on individual learning needs identified following Sirona CPD funding application processes.
Applicants must have current UK professional registration. For further information please see NHS Careers website (opens in a new window).
