Rapid Response Nurse Practitioner

Band 7

Do you want to develop your career and be part of a unique and dynamic team?

Do you want to be part of developing and shaping a new integrated service in Central London?

CNWL and partners have recently been awarded a contract to deliver a community service which will provide health and social care support to people from Hammersmith & Fulham, Kensington & Chelsea, and Westminster in their own homes when they are unwell or recovering from illness.

Community Independence Service (CIS) will provide an integrated Health & Social Care service to people at home who are at risk of being admitted to hospital , inreaching into Emergency Departments in Charing Cross, Chelsea and Westminster and St Mary’s Hospitals, and providing supported discharge and integrated rehabilitation and reablement care.

We have laid out an ambitious service delivery model for this work which includes the full adoption of mobile working, managing a sub-acute level of clinical need with dedicated medical and pharmacy support, shared clinical record keeping between health & social care staff and the implementation of reablement care as a standardised supportive activity for all patients in our pathways. In order to achieve this we are seeking to recruit equally ambitious and determined: Band 7 Community Nurses (RGN or dual qualified RGN/RMN)

Successful candidates will enjoy the rewards of working with a client group for whom they will make a significant difference every day, and will experience the strong motivation of being part of a supportive multi-agency effort which includes medical, mental health, nursing, allied health professional, social care and reablement staff. We would also be keen to hear from other practitioners with high level clinical assessment & management skills such as paramedics.

Our provider partnership includes: Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust and West London Mental Health NHS Trust, who together have significant experience of providing similar services in Hillingdon, Camden, and Milton Keynes (CNWL) and Ealing (WLMHT and CNWL in partnership) and these services are highly valued by our clients and commissioners alike. Applicants may be offered employment by either organisation.

We value our staff as much as our patients and place a strong focus on the development of our workforce, with comprehensive statutory and mandatory training to support for higher level learning in partnership with local Higher Education Institutions and Health Education England. We will actively support senior practitioners to undertake Non Medical Prescriber training and Advanced Physical Assessment Skills training and we are particularly keen to hear from you if you are already trained or are practicing in these areas.
