Ambulatory Clinic Nurse - COVID-19 in Stoke-on-Trent

Job description

Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (MPFT) was formed in June 2018 when South Staffordshire and Shropshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (SSSFT) acquired Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent Partnership Trust (SSOTP).

We are one of the largest integrated Health and Social Care providers, with an annual turnover of close to £500m, serving a population of 1.5m over a core geography of 2,400 square miles. Our portfolio of services includes mental health, learning disability and adult social care services across Staffordshire, Stoke-on-Trent and Shropshire. We provide a vast range of community services for adults and children and specialised services such as rheumatology and rehabilitation. Our inclusion services can be found across the country.

We have specialist mother and baby, eating disorder and medium secure forensic mental health services and contracts across the country for IAPT, addiction and some health services in prisons as well as hosting a network for inpatient mental health care for serving military personnel.

Recently, we have been shortlisted for Capsticks Award for innovation, Adademi Wales Award for Excellence in Organisational Development, Health and Wellbeing Award – Public Sector at Personnel Today Awards 2021, we were finalists for the HSJ Value Award 2021 for People and Organisational Development Initiative of the Year and we were the winners of the HR impact Award at Personnel Today Awards 2021.

Employing around 9,500 employees, we are an innovative and forward thinking organisation with an ever expanding portfolio of services. This means we can offer our employees genuine opportunities to develop their careers by gaining experience across a number of specialisms. We are a Keele University Teaching Trust with a thriving Research and Innovation Department.

The Trust works in partnership with the NHS programme ‘Step into Health’, supporting ex-service personnel into a career in the NHS.

The Adult Community Service provides care to patients in clinics and their own homes and is pivotal in the prevention agenda. This includes supporting the care of frail older people with long term conditions.

As a Community Staff Nurse you will deliver a high quality service, working closely with GP’s and multi-disciplinary teams in addressing a range of care issues across the spectrum of health conditions, and preventing avoidable hospital admissions.

We are an innovative service covering GP practices in the South East Alliance and we are seeking enthusiastic and highly motivated nurses to join the ambulatory clinic and community setting.

The potholder will be part of the community service which involves treatment of primarily ambulatory/non housebound patients and also support the district nursing teams which run alongside this service. Within the clinics patients will require complex wound management, catheter care, drain management, Doppler studies etc. There will be an expectation the post holder will ALSO work across the community nursing teams with care provision in patients own homes when required.

You will work independently in a community setting, participating in the ongoing assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation of programmes of care, adhering to policies and procedures.

You must be a qualified nursing practitioner with current NMC registration. Previous experience of working in the community is not an essential requirement; however, you do need to be able to demonstrate a commitment to delivering high quality targeted personalised care.

 

Post holders will be required to work flexibly on a rota system across a 7 day working week.

 

The Trust operates a vehicle leasing scheme.
