ANPs Out of hours required

We require a number of experienced Advanced Nurse Practitioners for evening, weekend and bank holiday cover to improve access for patients to the Out of Hours services and facilitate a clear patient pathway through primary, community, secondary and tertiary care where required. Ideally candidates should have extensive experience working in Primary Care.

You will undertake assessment of presenting complaints and offer advice, health education, treatment and referral, as appropriate, including the prescription of medicines where clinically required. Therefore a non-medical prescribing qualification is essential.

You will need to be able to work independently without further clinical presence, managing autonomous case loads alongside the General Practitioners. You will need a broad experience of using advanced clinical examination and assessment skills within your practice. Candidates will be required to see children through to geriatrics within your competencies safely.

Shifts available are home visits, face to face surgery shifts, or telephone triage.

The Out of Hours sites currently available to work in are Pendle , Rossendale, Burnley and Blackburn.
