Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is ideally situated just a forty five minute drive from Manchester. The Trust provides services to the 440,000 residents of Blackpool, Fylde & Wyre and North Lancashire, as well as specialist tertiary care for Cardiac and Haematology patients. We employ more than 6,500 staff, have approximately 900 beds and have a planned turnover in excess of £410m for 2017/2018.

 

As one of the United Kingdom’s largest coastal resort, Blackpool has plenty to offer its residents – it’s not just a good place to work; it’s a great place to live. In addition to its bustling centre and historic seafront, the town is world famous for its many attractions, including the famous Blackpool Tower. Blackpool also offers a number of scenic cycling routes round our local parks and across the surrounding countryside, as well as boasting panoramic views of the coast on its picturesque Promenade. Further afield, Blackpool also benefits from less than three-hour connections via rail to Edinburgh in the north and London in the south.

 

Our strategic vision for 2020 is:

As a high performing Trust, operating as part of an integrated care system, we will provide high quality, safe and effective care. This will be achieved in a financially sustainable way, through our skilled and motivated workforce”.


If you are a dynamic, forward thinking individual, looking for a challenge then the Extensive Care Team would love to hear from you! This is an exciting time for a registered nurse to join the team.

The Extensive Care service formed as part of the New Models of Care program, which was launched in 2015.  The Extensive Care Service delivers clinics across 5 sites on the Fylde Coast, which all GP practices, Neighbourhood Care Teams and Secondary Care services can refer into. The service is a Community based service providing coordinated and integrated care for patients over the age of 18 with at least one long term condition including frailty and dementia.

The team is multidisciplinary team consisting of medical staff, Advanced Practitioners, Trainee Advanced Practitioners, Community Matrons, Clinical Care Coordinators, Pharmacists, Pharmacy Technicians and Assistant Practitioners.

You will undertake a generic role as a Clinical Care Coordinator learning skills and knowledge from other professionals to provide an integrated model of care to patients aiming to ensure their care is provided in a coordinated way but also supporting them to manage their own care better. We are looking for the successful candidate to be able to:

• Assess, plan implement and evaluate care.
• Ensure that the care needs of the caseload are met by effective management and appropriate delegation of work to other members of the team.
• Work in partnership with the wider community and primary care teams to provide holistic patient care.
• Be able to demonstrate extensive knowledge, advanced analytical and practical skills, and the ability to communicate in a non-judgemental, empathetic way with patients, carers and other professionals.

This post holder will need to have good communication skills both written and verbal, have evidence of ongoing professional development and be able to work independently.

If you would like to work in a forward thinking area where your opinions and clinical judgements are valued, then this could the job for you. We can offer you support and training to consolidate your skills and enable you to continue to develop. 

The post holder will either be based from South Shore Primary Care Centre or Moor Park Health Centre, but will be expected to travel across the Fylde Coast region to effectively case manage and support with clinics.  Applicants must have a full driving license and access to a vehicle
