Parkinson’s Clinical Nurse Specialist
An exciting and challenging opportunity has arisen for an experienced and suitably qualified registered nurse to join the Unscheduled Care Division at Aneurin Bevan University Health Board. Aneurin Bevan University Health Board has a proven track record in developing its nursing workforce with groups and individuals receiving national recognition and awards. Based around the M4 corridor, we are at the gateway to England. You can wander the Brecon Beacons, if you need the tranquillity of the countryside, or visit historic sites and the beautiful coastlines of South Wales. The capital city of Wales, Cardiff is nearby. All towns and nearby cities can be as busy as you like them to be with excellent shopping facilities together with clubs, pubs and restaurants to suit all needs. If you are passionate about and have experience in the care of patients with Parkinson’s and have a genuine desire to work with this patient group, then you could be the person the team are looking for.
The successful candidate will spend the first 6 month working directly alongside our 2 existing Band 7 Parkinson’s Clinical Nurse Specialists on a rotational basis gaining an understanding of clinics as well as being exposed to other members of the Multidisciplinary team such as Neurology and COTE consultants, OT and speech and language therapy. They will also spend time with programs to support patients living with Parkinson’s to gain an understanding as to why patients are referred and what they can expect.
After 6 months the successful candidate will start to be exposed to the mental health aspect of Parkinson’s disease through attending various clinics and be expected to manage a small case load of patients under the supervision of our existing Clinical Nurse Specialists.
Competency and progress will be measured using the attached Competency Framework for nurses working in Parkinson’s Disease management, jointly produced by the UK Parkinson’s Disease Excellence Network.
The ability to speak Welsh is desirable for this post; Welsh and/or English speakers are equally welcome to apply.
