Practice Nurse Manager
An exciting opportunity has arisen in the attractive Cotswold market town of Chipping Norton for a Lead Practice Nurse/Line Manager.
Based in a modern, well equipped and spacious building, Chipping Norton Health Centre is a rural practice which serves 15,800 patients from the town and surrounding villages.
The successful applicant will be a registered first level nurse with post registration experience that includes at least 2 years primary/community nursing experience. Team leader experience that includes implementing protocols and clinical guidelines within a team is desirable. We are looking for a long term appointment – the role is key to the strategic development of nursing services in the locality. Management and leadership development is available to the successful candidate – we aspire to provide excellent management to all of the team.
The nursing team ( 5 PNs and 5 HCAs) is diverse and progressive with an emphasis on encouraging each individual to develop their full potential. The practice supports colleague development which compliments its role as a teaching practice for all disciplines of clinical staff. The practice is an active participant in the primary care network and enthusiastically supports ‘making a difference’ in caring for patients in the primary care setting. The nursing team plays a key role in this aspect.
The Health Centre management structure is well defined and each department has a dedicated leader. All line managers work well together and regularly meet with the practice manager and a partner to share issues and to develop operational processes within the centre.
As the Nursing Team leader you will enjoy a challenging but rewarding role. You can also expect excellent support from your colleagues, since each team member has a secondary area of responsibility (such as procurement of disposable supplies, maintenance of clinical equipment, lead of infection control etc.) thus spreading the management load.
