About the opportunity
Lloyds Pharmacy Clinical Homecare is part of McKesson UK, a leading healthcare company, we work in close partnership with the NHS and pharmaceutical companies to provide a huge range of nursing services to more than 80,000 patients in the comfort of their own home, at their place of work or in the community.
As a Paediatric Homecare Nurse, you will be working at the forefront of these services, visiting patients in a community setting to deliver medical treatments such as IV infusions, TPN treatments and both intramuscular and sub cut injections while also training patients to administer their own medication. Our paediatric nurses support and enable children to carry on living the everyday life of a child. We work flexibly around family commitments and regularly administer treatments at places of education helping to ensure our paediatric patients can continue with their education.
The focus is on clinical excellence, so we’ll give you all the support and flexibility you need to spend quality time with your patients and provide them with the best kind of 1-2-1 care. We’ll also make sure you remain at the cutting edge of your profession, gaining exposure to new technologies and therapies, and helping to develop care models that break the mould. Although you will be working independently in the community, you will remain part of a wider nursing team very much, enjoying regular contact with managers and colleagues.
You have to be well-organised to succeed in this role, as you will be responsible for managing your own workload and itinerary as well as for providing patients with the kind of day-to-day care that will help them achieve their goals and regain their independence. You’ll be travelling between patients throughout the day, so a full UK driving licence is essential. Other must-haves include a valid NMC PIN and at least 12 months’ post-registration experience, ideally within an acute setting, along with basic IT skills and a commitment to continuous professional development.
In return, we offer a highly competitive salary and benefits package, London Waiting if you’re based within M25. You will also receive a fully expensed company car, generous annual leave, personal pension plan, life assurance, private healthcare, discounts of a wide range of retailers and a flexible schedule that does not involve any night work.
