Are you looking for a change, a challenge, and a breath of fresh air? An exciting opportunity has arisen for experienced, motivated and enthusiastic Band 6 and Band 5 Staff Nurses to join our team in driving forward the re-design of the Dunbar Hospital. The vision is for the Hospital to become a transitional unit with close links to the West Caithness Integrated team, Riverbank & Princes Street GP practice’s, Caithness General and Raigmore Hospital, and includes developing more day case services such as ambulatory care.

We have a number of permanent positions available which can be worked full or part-time, rotational day/night duty contracts, including 12 hour shift patterns. Job share candidates are also welcomed.

Caithness is a beautiful part of Scotland which offers an excellent quality of life in a rural setting. It has plentiful outdoor pursuits, affordable housing, low crime rates and a strong sense of community. Relocation packages will also be offered to the successful candidates.

The Dunbar Hospital has 4 GP led beds, 2 palliative care beds, a Minor Injuries Unit, Primary Care Emergency Centre and Outpatient Department Clinics so a minor injuries qualification or relevant experience is essential for the band 6 posts. An independent extended and supplementary nurse prescribing qualification is also desirable for our Band 6 Staff Nurses although we would welcome enquires from nurses looking for a development opportunity.

We are seeking to recruit enthusiastic and knowledgeable Registered Band 5 Nurses to join the team, covering the Wards at Dunbar Hospital, Thurso. You may on occasions be required to assist in the Minor Injuries Unit and at Outpatient Department Clinics.

If you feel you have the skills, enthusiasm and motivation to help drive exciting developments forward and to provide the best care for the local population then please get in contact.
