Trainee Advanced Clinical Practitioner

Job Reference: 356-21-3428751

Hull University Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust
Acute Medicine
Hull Royal Infirmary, Hull
£40,057 - £45,839 per annum

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Trainee Advanced Clinical Practitioner to join an established team of ACPs in Acute Medicine at Hull University Teaching Hospital NHS Trust. The post will be based across all areas of Acute Medicine at Hull Royal Infirmary.

We are looking to hear from registered healthcare professionals who are critical thinkers and have a passion for transforming care. You must have a professional registration which gives you the ability to prescribe as you will be undertaking non-medical prescribing as part of the MSc Advanced Practice Apprenticeship at the University of Hull, starting January 2022.

You will develop skills in the clinical assessment and management of patients presenting with acute and undifferentiated medical conditions to either enable discharge, referral or admission. You will be a key member of the multidisciplinary team, working closely alongside medical, nursing and AHP teams.

Support and supervision is key to the success of the ACP role and you will be allocated a consultant supervisor for the duration of your training. During years 1 and 2 of the training period hours of work will cover Monday to Friday 8am to 10pm. In year 3 you will become a supernumerary part of the junior medical rota on the acute medical unit. Training will cover all areas of acute medicine, to include the acute medical unit, ambulatory care unit and the medical short stay ward. You will also be encouraged to spend time in specialist clinics to expand your knowledge and skills.

Upon successful completion of your MSc Advanced Practice Apprenticeship and the in-house capability packages you will progress to Agenda for Change Band 8a. Working hours will then include 24 hour rotation, subject to service needs.

If you are looking for a challenging yet rewarding position we would welcome your application. We are therefore looking for individuals who have significant post-qualifying experience and have the drive, ambition and positivity to make this role succeed.

These are online and should be completed 4 days prior to attending for interview.
