Full Time – Practice Nurse

Cruddas Park Surgery, 178 Westmorland Road, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE4 7JT.

We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced, motivated and enthusiastic Practice Nurse to join our nursing team. General practice is in a state of rapid change and Cruddas Park and Hillsview Surgeries are embracing these challenges. For example we use a Year of Care model for diabetes and other long term conditions.

The practice has recently appointed new Salaried GP’s and is an active member of our network West End Family Health. We work closely with local charities and we are a founding member of Newcastle Healthy Futures, an innovative social enterprise.

The successful candidate must enjoy working in a dynamic environment, where there are many opportunities for team and personal development.

Ideally they will have general practice nursing experience, including aspects of chronic disease management (e.g. asthma, COPD, diabetes and cardiovascular monitoring).

Experience of travel immunisations, childhood immunisations, family planning and cytology would be beneficial

Familiarity with Emis Web medical system and an understanding of QOF would be an advantage.

Infection Control training and understanding is essential to comply with CQC standards.

The practice, however, is willing to consider applicants without all these competencies as we would ensure appropriate training opportunities.

*please note that the salary does not follow the agenda for change pay scheme*

Closing Date: 28th January 2021
