Are you an experienced Advanced Nurse Practitioner looking for an exciting new opportunity? The Urgent Care Centre at Trafford Hospital was established as part of the ‘New Health Deal for Trafford’ changes in November 2013, and has been working successfully since then. We now recognise that there is potential for enhanced nursing input to the care of patients attending the Urgent Care Centre, and the new role is central to that approach. We have been working with the CCG and co-located Walk-In-Centre to develop a new nurse-led service commencing 3rd October 2016. Service hours will be from 0800 – 2000 with staff employed until 2200. Combined annual activity is expected to exceed 60,000 new attendances per annum.
We are seeking dynamic, motivated practitioners who possess expertise working in the field of Urgent and Emergency Care. Substantial clinical experience in this speciality field is required to undertake a key role in the new Urgent Care Centre working alongside Emergency Nurse Practitioners and urgent care staff aiming to enhance and develop services to meet the needs of the local population. You will have the opportunity to be instrumental in developing the future service working alongside Walk-In-Centre colleagues. You will be educated to Masters Level, including independent non-medical prescribing.
We aim to improve the sustainability, quality and efficiency of services, enhance integrated services with the community and improve care pathways, delivering a truly person centred service.
You will have the opportunity to participate in a rotational programme to the Manchester Royal Infirmary Emergency Department. A robust induction and personal development plan to meet their professional development needs will be developed with the Nurse Consultant clinical lead.
You will demonstrate the Trust Values and Behaviours framework, acting as a role model to multidisciplinary teams and provide support to staff who aspire to advanced practice roles. We would welcome an informal discussion and are happy to facilitate a visit to either site.
