TEES COMMUNITY NURSING TEAMS
An exciting opportunity has arisen for registered nurses to apply for a community staff nurse which will be attached to a Primary Care Network (PCN), to provide coordinated care through integrated teams.
Primary Care Networks signal a significant change in the way practices interact not only with each other, but the wider health and social care system. This will enable the traditional barriers to the delivery of health and care to be broken down to enable care to be delivered to a defined patient population, in a different way to meet the needs of that population, focused on prevention and personalisation of care, making best use of resources collectively.
The NHS Long Term Plan introduced PCNs as essential building blocks of every Integrated Care System. The postholder will have responsibility for leading and managing the community nursing workforce.Main duties of the job
The community staff nurse will be attached to a caseload of patients where responsibility lies with the District Nursing Sister within a PCN. This role will provide the opportunity to work closely with GP practices and other partners, in supporting patients with highly complex and often high acuity needs to prevent unnecessary hospital admission. This role requires an clinician with excellent, team working and communication skills, to provide patient centred careand delivering effective evidence based care to a defined demographic population with diverse health care and social needs.
