Emergency Nurse Practitioner

Job Reference: 209-A-20-2597664

Employer:
East Cheshire NHS Trust
Department:
Emergency Department
Location:
Macclesfield District General Hospital, Macclesfield
Salary:

Whether you are just starting out in your career or are looking to use your skills and experience in a new role, East Cheshire NHS Trust is the right employer for you. An organisation with a real sense of community we actively support and develop our staff to ensure our patients receive the best quality care. Join our team and support our vision of delivering the right care first time, every time.


COME AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE and join our enthusiastic and committed team as an Emergency Department Nurse. The Department sees in excess of 52,000 per annum, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, working closely with other acute trusts in the North West.

An opportunity has arisen for an Emergency Nurse Practitioner to join our supportive team in the Emergency Department at Macclesfield.

This is a dynamic, autonomous and challenging role where you will assess, treat, discharge and care for patients presenting with a range of minor injuries. This role involves an on-going rotation to the Minor Injuries Unit at Congleton War Memorial Hospital.

We are looking for an individual with good interpersonal skills with a range of extended clinical skills and experience in assessing and treating minor injuries. The successful candidate must have experience in Emergency Department nursing and be able to demonstrate commitment to on-going professional development. Post registration qualification in Minor Injuries would be an advantage but we would consider supporting the right individual in attaining a Minor Injurie’s qualification. In addition, we would also consider a development opportunity for the right candidate.

What we can offer?

  • In October 2017 we received an £800,000 investment into our Emergency Department and the co-located Primary Care Centre. This has enabled us to implement streaming so our patients can be safely directed to the most appropriate area for assessment.
  • A structured induction programme to the Emergency Department with on-going supervision supported by our Training and Development Facilitator. You will be helped to develop your skills and progress through the National Curriculum and Competency Framework for Emergency Nurses.
  • Plans to create a new 12 month Leadership apprenticeship to run alongside the Preceptorship Programme for Newly Qualified staff
  • Possibilities of long-term career progression within the Department with plans to develop pathways to the role of Advanced Clinical Practitioner (ACP)
  • Funded training for courses such as Advanced Life Support (ALS), Advanced Paediatric Life Support (APLS) and , in association with the Critical Care Unit, the Safe Critically Ill Transfer Training (SCITT)
  • Flexible working schemes
  • A friendly, supportive multi-professional team spirit that celebrates colleague of the month

Opportunities exist for flexible working patterns, which support staff in working hours associated with improving working lives. If you are motivated and committed to high quality patient care, and you think you would enjoy the challenge of Emergency Department Practitioner Nursing, we would like to hear from you.

We welcome informal discussions, so please contact Fiona Owen on 01625 661734 or fiona.owen@nhs.net
