Senior District Nurse

KCHFT is rated as Outstanding by the CQC, which means we are really very good at providing care to the people in our Community and our staff think it’s great place to work.

Are you a qualified District Nurse with at least two year experience, looking to use your clinical skills & knowledge to make a difference to patients?

We are looking for Senior District Nurses who have worked at a senior level and have additional skills including non-medical prescribing. However, those currently studying for non-medical prescribing will be considered. Candidates should be working at masters level, and bring expertise such as enhanced physical assessment skills and recognised modules at level 7.

The role will support the management of our most complex patients, and provide clinical leadership for our teams, especially Long Term Conditions, Wound or End of Life care.

We are changing the skill mix of our current teams in this area, to allow clinicians to provide continuity for patients, by working together with the patient to plan their individual care needs for good outcomes.

We are supporting a team ethos approach for working together, and in response to the recognition of the increasing demand of complex patient needs, employing those with the specialist training, experience and advanced skills.

Adding this significant clinical expertise will drive the quality of our work, and produce excellent patient outcomes. As the senior nurse, this role will drive the clinical leadership for teams, whilst promoting high standards of assessment for personalized care plans, enabling excellent care delivery to patients, in their own home or within local clinics.

We are looking for people who think a bit differently - to be part of a nurse-led NHS team that is self-directed, can share responsibility and take decisions together.

You’ll need to be bold, brave, creative, and willing to take responsibility.

We’ll help you to develop your skills, and support your continued professional development as a valued colleague in one of the largest NHS Foundation trusts in the UK.

We have a full time post, 30 hours & 22.5 hours at Foster Street in Maidstone.

We welcome applications from all groups in the community and will accommodate needs and make adjustments wherever possible. We welcome applications from individuals from diverse backgrounds and those covered by the Equalities Act.

Interviews date is TBC. You will also receive a call after the advert closes to have a chat about your aspirations. Previous applicants need not apply.
