Would you like to be part of a specialist palliative multi-professional team?  Would you like to work for a reputable and dynamic charity that has served Central Scotland for almost 40 years? Are you committed to living out the four pillars of advanced practice in creative ways?  Do you have the type of skills to trail blaze, shape and develop the Hospice ANP role?

As we seek to develop the shape of our workforce, we are looking for an experienced Advanced Nurse Practitioner who is passionate about demonstrating nursing at its best and making a difference to people with life limiting illness and their families right up to the end of life.

You must be a highly motivated, compassionate, clinically experienced RGN, have some experience in hospice /palliative care and hold a Master’s degree ideally relevant to the specialty.  You will need to have a sound clinical knowledge and highly developed clinical decision-making skills. All applicants should possess the ability to be flexible, prioritise fluctuating workloads, remain focused, work across a variety of teams and be able to lead / implement change. 

The ANP will participate in the IPU out of hours on-call rota, which provides telephone support and advice as well as attendance at the IPU if required. There is therefore a requirement to be able to attend the IPU when required within maximum of 45 minutes. Second on-call advice is always available.
