Band 7 - Senior Complex Care Nurse

£40,057 to 45,839 (Full time)

Would you enjoy the challenge of a new role as Senior Nurse for Complex Care?

Our Community Nursing Hubs are made up of multi-disciplinary nursing and therapy teams with the nursing teams each led by a Band 7 Senior District Nurse. An opportunity has arisen for a Band 7 Senior Nurse for Complex Care to work alongside the Senior District Nurse in partnership, providing leadership and clinical expertise in the management of patients on the caseload. You would be involved with triage of patients and responsible for the holistic assessment and coordination of care for those with complex health care needs, in addition to supporting the District Nurse and Matron with their management responsibilities.

Complex patients on the caseload may have multiple co-morbidities combined with challenging social or environmental factors which complicate the ability to deliver nursing care effectively whilst maintaining high standards. Therefore, a creative problem-solving ability and determination to deliver quality, patient centred care is essential. Other desirable personal attributes include the ability to be innovative and influential within the organisation. You must be confident and competent to offer detailed, evidence-based advice and guidance to others including senior nurses and therapists and work collaboratively with professionals across LPT and Primary Care Networks to foster a culture of shared learning and transparency to achieve effective integration of services.

You will be involved in clinical audit and monitoring of professional standards in relation to key dimensions of health care quality:

• Patient safety

• The effectiveness of health care interventions

• Patient experience and feedback

Evidence of significant clinical experience within a community setting is essential for this post. You should have a flexible approach to ways of working and be IT literate. Car owner and driver is also essential. LPT run 2 car schemes, car leasing and car salary sacrifice subject to meeting the acceptance criteria. If you currently have a lease car through another NHS organisation it may be possible to transfer the agreement to LPT.

We believe that by investing in our staff we deliver enhanced care to our patients. You will have considerable opportunity for innovation and job satisfaction. The successful applicant would need to have or be willing to work towards the V300 prescribing qualification. The teams are friendly and active, dedicated to promoting individualised care. We are highly focused not only upon the education of our team, but also on that of our patients, and their carer’s.
