Take your career down a different path with NHS Highland
NHS Highland Rural Support Team
Advanced Nurse Practitioners & Paramedic Practitioners
INTERVIEWS TO BE HELD ON WEDNESDAY 4 November & 2 December 2015 in DINGWALL
Are you looking for a change, a challenge, and a breath of fresh air? NHS Highland is recruiting, and this is your chance to become part of something new, exciting, and completely different.
Opportunities to work in Acharacle, Wester Ross and Skye & Lochalsh.
Whether you are an Advanced Nurse Practitioner, Unscheduled Care Practitioner or Paramedic Practitioner, being part of this prestigious team offers you the exciting opportunity to work in a variety of stunning locations and embrace the unique challenges and opportunities presented by rural practice, being based in an out of hours centre within a community hospital or in primary care settings in the above locations.
You will ideally be experienced in pre hospital care, community hospital and transfer environments, which require extended skills such as non medical prescribing, advanced clinical assessment, BASICs, ALS, PLS, intermediate and palliative care. We are also seeking nurses who have experience at specialist or advanced practice level within the primary care environment in both unscheduled and scheduled care provision. Opportunities to acquire additional skills would be made available to the right candidates who are as excited about this as we are.
In remote and rural locations, the healthcare professional is a key part of the community, which brings specific challenges but can also offer fantastic levels of personal and professional satisfaction. You will be working as part of an extended team of professionals including the Scottish Ambulance Service, RNLI Coastguards, Fire and Rescue Services, Mountain Rescue, and Local Community Hospitals.
It you are looking for a rewarding career change, or a 'taster' period in remote and rural healthcare before making more permanent career choices, please contact us for an informal chat, to find out more about this exciting team and discuss the vacancies we have.
We are flexible in our approach with these posts, and are happy to talk to anyone with a genuine enthusiasm to deliver quality healthcare to our rural communities. Portfolio career approach is also a possibility and we are happy to consider fixed term contracts.
Configuration of the team is dependent on you; as are locality and the hours you wish to work.
