An exciting opportunity has arisen within the Unscheduled Care division at Great Western Hospital NHS Foundation. We are looking for a Registered Nurse/AHP (adults) with a passion to provide high quality nursing care to meet the individual needs of the older patient. Older Person ACP representation is required to support the transformational development of the delivery of a comprehensive multi-disciplinary service that is holistic in its approach and evidence based. PLEASE NOTE: This advert may close early if sufficient applications are received.

The successful applicant will, within eighteen months of commencing in post, have developed the skills that are required to practice autonomously; demonstrating advanced levels of clinical judgement and diagnostic reasoning in order to provide a differential diagnosis. You will work closely with the Matron, Head of Service and Clinical lead to implement a new staffing model to proactively manage elderly people in the acute setting. You will be instrumental in embedding an improved and consistent approach to assess and identify patients with frailty at the 'front door' ensuring that they receive a comprehensive geriatric assessment. The team, which requires nursing representation, will be responsible for ensuring that, through triage and assessment, unnecessary base ward admissions will be avoided and length of stay will be reduced.
