Are you an experienced advanced clinical practitioner?

We are looking to recruit a number of enthusiastic, forward thinking Advanced Clinical Practitioners to work within the Community React Team (CRT). The post holders will work as part of the Community multi-disciplinary teams to manage patients in the community setting, including patients' home, clinics and the Community beds assessment area at the acute hospital site. The post holders will support the clinical team in terms of clinical leadership and expertise. 

The CRT works in collaboration with North West Ambulance Service (NWAS), Primary Care, Care Homes and the wider healthcare economy, with a focus on safe admission avoidance and supporting patients in crisis by managing their care and treatment in their place of residence. The team also have a key role with patients being discharged from hospital to ensure safe effective discharge.

The role will require you to work across all areas in the Trust which includes those that are designated as positive, asymptomatic and negative COVID wards.

This is an exciting time for the Community React Team as we continue to evolve, working closely with our key stakeholders. The expectation is to work within a changing environment and to drive the transformation agenda.

This full time role (37.5 hours) works to deliver service 7 days per week from 8am-10pm. An Enhanced DBS (with Adults Barred List check) will be obtained for the successful candidate during pre-employment checks. Applicants may hold professional registration from a Nursing or Allied Health professional background.

Based in the Community division so you will need to be required to travel  across the borough.

Be advised, the vacancy could close early if a high number of applications is received.
