Are you looking for an exciting change to your nursing career? Are you an autonomous nurse practitioner OR interested to become one? Do you enjoy working with older people with neurological disorders especially those affected by Parkinson’s? If so, this could be an exciting opportunity for your next career move.

Due to new funding available for investment in community services, we have an excellent opportunity for recruitment to a Parkinson’s Nurse Specialist role in East Riding of Yorkshire. You will work as part of a community frailty team and will receive support from other nurse practitioners and GPs with special interest. You will receive clinical supervision and clinical leadership support from the Parkinson’s nurse specialist team and consultant Neurologists based at Hull & East Yorkshire Hospital NHS trust. The post-holder will be expected to have proven experience of working clinically with older people in the community. It is expected that the post-holder will have sound knowledge and understanding of how Parkinson’s affect people from diagnosis to end of life and what the needs are for such patients when living in the community. You will have a proven track record of working as part of a Multi-disciplinary team and will be able to confidently make autonomous clinical decisions. It is desirable to have a non-medical prescribing qualification however; applications will be accepted from those working towards or those who are willing to complete the qualification within the first year of their employment subject to a learning contract. You will deliver care in a variety of settings including care homes, patients’ own homes and in community and hospital based clinics. The post-holder is expected to cover the catchment area for East Riding Gp practices and therefore access to an appropriate means of transport is essential. We will be happy to support any relevant training courses as part of the induction and ongoing support will be available for continuing professional development. The post is advertised as a band 7 community specialist nurse role however, applications will be accepted from those candidates not fully meeting the essential criteria but willing work towards them so that they could be employed in a developmental role.
