Fixed term Practice Nurse vacancy

Due to a planned absence we are looking to appoint a motivated and enthusiastic full time (up to 37.5hours per week) Practice Nurse to join our team for a fixed term of 6 months. The nursing team comprises of Practice Nurse, Diabetes Specialist Nurse and two Healthcare Assistants. 

Hours offered for the post will be negotiable and flexible and the post holder will be required to work across all three sites on Islay, so a driving licence and access to a vehicle will be essential for the successful applicant.  

The successful candidate would ideally have training in Chronic Disease Management and in particular Asthma and COPD. It would also be of benefit if the candidate was proficient in cervical cytology, sexual health and family planning.

The salary offered would be reflective of the candidate's experience. We use Vision and Docman and training would be given in both where required. Start date: April/May 2018. Support with finding suitable accommodation will be offered to the successful applicant. 

Please contact Alan Beresford Practice Business Manager on 01496 302103 should you wish to discuss this opportunity further or email alan.beresford@nhs.net with your CV and covering letter. Closing date: 25th March 2018.

We would also welcome expressions of interest from experienced Practice Nurses who would be interested in providing cover for annual leave.
