Description : The district nursing service operates an open access policy that is available 365-days a year. The service does not operate a waiting list, however, care needs are prioritised to be able to respond to both planned and unplanned care.
This includes the ability to respond timeously to unscheduled care requests for those patients who require urgent district nursing intervention.
The post holder is responsible and accountable for the ongoing management of the caseload to ensure the assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation of programmes of care.
These will be developed in partnership with Patients, Family, Carers and Significant others, and will be evidence based taking into consideration the lifestyle, race, gender and cultural background, and factors which impact on physical, mental or emotional health.
This is a senior nursing post which ensures that there is experience to manage the more complex patients within their own home whilst ensuring patient safety, staff governance and support to the Team.
There is a focus on ensuring that patients can be supported in their own homes especially if they choose to remain there at the end of life.
It is essential that you are a Registered Nurse with a post registration qualification in District Nursing. A current Driving Licence would be beneficial.
