Band 8a

Leicestershire Partnership Trust have transformed their services in combination with their acute providers to implement the national Home First approach to provide hospital treatment and care closer to home.

We have developed a clinical pathway delivering medical care for patients from sub-acute care to rehabilitation.

We are looking for enthusiastic, motivated staff to participate in and develop this exciting area of practice involving:-

  • Sub-acute care within community hospital wards – providing medical care for a diverse group of higher acuity patients.
  • Rehabilitation – providing medical support for patients undergoing rehabilitation within our wards.
  • Established rotational opportunity to the Emergency Frailty Unit at the Leicester Royal Infirmary.

This diverse clinical case mix requires practitioners with comprehensive assessment and medical management skills to deliver safe effective care.

We are building a team for the future and recognise the benefits of Advanced Nurse Practitioners leading patient assessment, management and interventional therapies.

For our Band 8a you will need to demonstrate significant Post – Reg experience at band 7/8a practitioner level. Possess or be working towards an MSc in Advanced Clinical Practice/verified portfolio of evidence and have completed the Independent Non-Medical Prescriber Qualification (V300). Extensive clinical experience in management of long term conditions/acute care is beneficial.

The successful candidate must be able to demonstrate evidence of managerial and leadership skills, a flexible self – motivated attitude, and the ability to practice autonomously.
