An exciting opportunity has arisen for a qualified Assistant Practitioner to join the Garstang District Nursing team.

The fixed term temporary post will be to cover maternity leave until June 2021.

The Assistant Practitioner role within the District Nursing team consists of undertaking duties in relation to patient care and nursing team administration, within the community setting.
