Following a recent review of service provision we have 2 exciting posts available working within the West Caithness Community Nursing Team.

We require motivated and enthusiastic registered nurses to lead our caseloads in West Caithness. They will provide support to our Band 5 nurses and Healthcare Support Workers and alongside our Advanced Practitioner and Integrated Team to provide first class care to our patients and their carers.

Excellent communication skills are essential, as is the ability to work on both your own initiative and as part of a team. Experience of working within caring and home environments, in partnership with patients and families and other agencies is vital.

A current driving licence is also essential for this post as is use of your own car although pool car may be available at times - you will be expected to travel efficiently and effectively between various work locations to meet the operational requirements of the service.

These are permanent part-time posts of 30 hours per week, covering a 7-day rota, including weekends, with an out-of-hours on-call commitment for terminally ill patients, requiring end of life care.
