Within the North Nottinghamshire locality we are offering an exciting opportunity for a full time role as a Band 6 Continence Nurse Advisor with a keen interest in working with adults with bladder or bowel dysfunction. We will consider part time staff for the role too as we value good work life balance and the health and wellbeing of our staff.

This is a rare and exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic and motivated clinician to work alongside our fantastic team of specialist nurses.

Main duties of the job

You will undertake and deliver high quality specialist continence assessments and devise individual treatment therapy plans in order to improve and optimise patients' levels of continence and independence.

You will have responsibility for the caseload management of individuals referred into the service and will deliver appropriate treatment therapy interventions to achieve agreed realistic goals and ensure safe and timely discharge from the service.

You will be actively encouraged to participate in CPD. Teaching is an important part of the role, you will be expected to actively participate in teaching/training of colleagues, students and 3rd party delegates within a planned programme of courses to ensure that the service delivers high quality interventions based on best practice evidence.

You will liaise closely with other health and social care professionals as well as patients, family and carers therefore excellent communication skills are essential.
