Cwm Taf Cares
Our philosophy Cwm Taf Cares is at the heart of everything we do as we are committed to the health, wellbeing and development of our staff.
We provide hospital and community based services to people living in Rhondda Cynon Taf and Merthyr Tydfil. Our vision is to care for our communities and patients by preventing ill-health, promoting better health, providing excellent services and reducing the need for inpatient care wherever possible through the provision of strengthened home, primary and community care.
An exciting opportunity has arisen for a registered nurse to join the @Home Service, as a Band 5 on a Full time permanent basis.
The @Home Service are introducing a 4 hour nursing response service 7 days a week to cover a range of interventions and assessments to support patients within their home environment e.g. additional support for patients with chronic COPD with the use of nebulizer and IV treatments to avoid hospital admissions, increased delivery of IV service and to deliver a new integrated health and social care service across Cwm Taf.
We anticipate that this new approach to working in partnership will transform the experience of people in hospital, particularly A&E, and through a revised approach to earlier intervention, joint working and flexible deployment of resources make sure people are able to return to their home earlier with support rather than face prolonged admission to hospital.
We are looking for a caring professional with a wide range of nursing skills, and a commitment to excellence in nursing practice. We are looking for skilled professionals who will support the Clinical leads with the monitoring of the @Home performance and practice developments. The post holders will work closely within the wider @Home Service.
We will provide a friendly and welcoming environment within a supportive management structure.
The ability to speak Welsh is desirable for this post.
