Larwood surgery has a walk-in centre for patients who are registered with us to access when requesting a “same day” appointment. It is led by nurse practitioners and GP’s and has proved very successful. We need a further nurse practitioner to compliment this service. The environment is busy and applicants must be capable of rising to the challenge. The range of conditions presenting varies from minor illness to acute onset, urgent conditions. When not based in the walk-in service you will undertake chronic disease management reviews.
We are therefore looking for a further nurse with excellent communication and clinical skills to work with our current team. The applicant needs to have experience in the management of minor illness/injury. A prescribing qualification is essential. Desirable would be a qualification in chronic disease management conditions.
We are seeking to appoint someone who will provide and maintain a high standard of nursing care for patients and integrate well with team members.
