You will be driven by a passion and determination for the delivery of high quality person centred care, and will be motivated by raising the bar through enabling clinical governance systems.

You will work closely with the Nursing operational leads within the Clinical Homecare services helping shape specialist nurse led services but also lead on exploring general nurse led services evaluating quality of service delivery and enabling continuous quality improvement. You will be a thought leader shaping and informing the design of new services with a strong focus on patient safety and experience.

The role involves collaborating across multiple teams ensuring perspectives of holistic and total patient care is understood and present in our patient and care pathways.

You will create and maintain the formation of a clinical governance framework using your nursing and operational experience that would be on par with NHS expectations, as a minimum, to offer confidence and credibility for patients registered.

The ideal candidate will have a firm understanding of patient and NHS clinician expectations within the management of specialist morbidities (e.g. oncology, haematology, rheumatoid arthritis, respiratory) and safe and effective care planning for this patient group. You will be familiar with the administration of specialist therapies (biologics, biosimilars, immunotherapy) requiring specialist diagnosis, administration, management and follow up support. You will have a strong grasp of NHS patient and care pathways and how services are delivered to add credibility when building and maintaining relationships with the NHS.

The successful candidate will have:

  • Registered Nurse at level 1 (RN) with active NMC registration and specialist clinical practical experience of at least five years;

  • Working accurately with high levels of accountability is key whilst working closely with the management team to support the broader strategic direction of travel; 
  • You will be able to demonstrate a compassionate and empathetic patient centric attitude in your day to day contribution but be comfortable that this role offers no direct patient contact.
