We are currently seeking a dynamic and enthusiastic nurse with a special interest in Continence to join our Community Continence team.

You need to have a can - do attitude and have experience of working with and assessing patients with bladder and bowel dysfunction.

This post offers the chance to develop skills and knowledge within Bladder and Bowel care whilst being supported by team members.

The work is varied and you will be working independently within patient's homes and clinic settings, providing assessments and treatments to adults with bladder and bowel symptoms. There will be a lot of support to achieve the necessary skills and knowledge before you work and assess independently.

Main duties of the job

This is an opportunity for someone with an enthusiasm for continence and a wish to extend their expertise in this field and be part of a team dedicated to providing excellent care across our community.

The candidate will be an autonomous skilled practitioner who will be implementing treatment based on expert clinical practice for people with continence issues and assist other health care professionals providing care in a range of settings. You will need to be confident in delivering education to patients, families, care staff & other professionals and ideally have experience of Continence and /or urology nursing.

You will assist in the provision of a high quality and efficient service to all users. You need to be sensitive to patients' needs and adaptable in working in a busy environment.
