Are you an experienced Clinical Practitioner?

Are you dynamic and motivated?

Do you enjoy a challenge?

Are you enthusiastic?

If so we are looking for you.

We are seeking to recruit an experienced clinical practitioner (nurse or AHP) who is keen to work in an ever changing, fast paced and evolving service, driving standards forward and delivering excellent care. The successful candidate will join an established, friendly team of practitioners and will be positive, creative thinking individuals who are motivated, influential, and have the ability to work under pressure.

As a registered practitioner you must be able to demonstrate significant clinical experience preferably within A&E, Walk in Centre or Primary Care. You will need to be highly motivated and be prepared to continue to develop your clinical skills. The role will involve the assessment, diagnosis  and management of a diverse caseload of minor injury and minor illness.  You will be expected to request and interpret a range of investigations and have the ability to recognise and respond to urgent and emergency situations quickly. 

The successful candidate will  be expected to lead the team and offer clinical supervision and advice to developing clinicians as well as liaise with other teams within WWL. 

You will be offered regular training and supervision provided by our ED Consultants and will be expected to cascade informal teaching within the units.  Senior clinicians are actively encouraged to offer suggestions and ideas for innovative and creative pathways to drive the service forward.

The successful candidate will have the opportunity to work across both the Urgent Treatment Centre at Wigan, and the Walk in Centre at Leigh.

The service operational hours are:

UTC – 8am – 11.30pm

WIC – 7am – 9.15pm

Both services operate 7 days per week, 365 days per year.

If you think this role is for you, we welcome your application.

Please note candidates will be required to present original certificates for qualifications at interview stage.
