Airedale NHS Foundation Trust
£28,407 to £34,581 pro rata per annum
Closing date
5 May 2024
This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic and motivated nurse with relevant experience to join our established integrated intermediate care team. The Collaborative Care Teams have undergone developments and in the CQC report, our team is described as an outstanding example of community working.

The service receives referrals from a wide range of health and social care professionals, with the aim of supporting patients with a health related crisis at home. The goal is to avoid an acute hospital admission and/or support early discharge. We also provide support to patients who require out of hours district nursing and provide input to people accessing intermediate care beds in the community.

Main duties of the job

In addition, the Collaborative Care Teams provide support to patients within their own homes that require IV therapy, this includes clinical assessment of patients, management and escalation of unwell patients, patient centred care planning, administration of IV medication, peripheral cannulation and on-going care of cannulas, venepuncture and management of Central Venous Access Devices.

We offer a robust induction programme, on the job training, annual appraisal, 1:1 supervision and opportunities for development. We encourage applicants to contact us if they are interested in this post so you can see first-hand how the team functions and learn about this fantastic opportunity.

This is a 24 hour a day 7 days a week service operating 365 days a year therefore the post holder will be expected to work shift patterns to cover the service including Early, Lates, Long Days, Nights or a combination of both and have access to own transport.

About us

We are always looking for enterprising and innovative approaches to the way we provide our services. We are a national centre for telemedicine and introduced telehealth to the UK offender healthcare sector and also provide the service to patients in their care homes. Community matters to us and we are supported by 400 dedicated volunteers and have strong links with Bradford University, Craven College and Leeds City College to ensure we inspire the workforce of the future.

We want to attract staff who embrace our 'Right Care' behaviours of compassion, a commitment to quality of care and working together for patients - we want to make these part of our DNA.
