Clinical Coordinator - Hospital at Night
An exciting opportunity has come up to be part of a new initiative in rolling out the Nervecentre task management. Nervecentre task management system ‘Hospital at Night’ (H@N) streams and prioritises all ‘tasks’ created in the “Out Of Hours” period, enabling the clinical co-ordinator to work with a team of medical and support staff to deliver the Right care, to the Right Patient, at the Right Time. H@N requires this co-ordination to function.
The post holder works as part of the Hospital at Night Team and is responsible on a shift-by-shift basis for proactively managing the clinical workload for the Hospital at Night team. The visible presence of post holders will be key in supporting staff working across all aspects of patient care.
The post holder will provide leadership, clinical support and advice to nursing and junior medical staff acting as the first point of contact and making referrals to or coordinating the contribution of other members of the Hospital at Night team.
They will efficiently provide and maintain high quality clinical care for patients out of hours and contribute to the teaching, development and supervision of all grades of staff.
The post holder will be required to rotate between both sites that make up Calderdale & Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust, and will be expected to rotate onto days at weekends and Bank Holidays. The team has a base at both campuses.
