(Salary 24,670 - 30,742 pro-rata)

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a registered nurse to work within the developing Ambulatory Care Unit in Caithness General Hospital. As part of the Caithness General Redesign Programme, this new model of care provides day-case services to improve care and reduce the need for prolonged hospital stay, thus treating the population on an outpatient basis.

We are looking for a candidate who is proactive and enthusiastic to further support the development of the Ambulatory Care Unit. As part of a satellite integrated team, you will provide assessment and subsequent treatment of patients attending the unit within the services covered: daily renal dialysis, blood transfusions, various IV infusions for chronic conditions, and chemotherapy.

Previous experience in either Systemic Anti-Cancer Therapy or Haemodialysis is desirable but not essential as a comprehensive training package will be provided. It is anticipated that the successful candidate will predominately be based within the Chemotherapy & IV Infusions room, with potential Haemodialysis experience to follow at a later date. However, other combinations could be explored depending on skill set and experience, with Chemotherapy training starting in January-February 2020.

As a valued member of the team you will be supported by a personal development plan/appraisal, extensive training and competencies achievement, and development opportunities within NHS Highland.

This is a full-time post of 37.5 hours per week, to be worked in accordance with service requirements. However, part-time hours would be considered for negotiation (no less than 23 hours per week).

Informal enquiries and arranged drop-in visits are welcomed and encouraged by Muriel Baroja-Rodriguez (Acting Senior Charge Nurse) - Ambulatory Care Unit, Caithness General Hospital, Wick, Tel: 01955 880201.
