We are looking for a highly skilled, innovative, dynamic and motivated nurse with clinical and leadership skills in Tissue Viability related specialisms to join the Tissue Viability Team.

You will work closely with the TVNs, clinical leads, acute/community teams to further improve reduction in pressure ulcer incidents and improve quality in wound management across WWL.

You will be responsible for line management of direct reports.

You will demonstrate flexibility, excellent communication and leadership skills and the ability to develop, deliver and evaluate quality improvement projects within the service.
