To support our transformational model of care promoting high quality person-centred carePosted: 28 May 2019 · Practice news
We are a friendly, long established practice with a commitment to providing the highest quality of care and are seeking a similarly minded individual to work in our Team. Our Team of 4 GPs and 11 practice nurses & HCAs care for a population of 9,800 patients in a semi urban-rural location based in Forfar.
We launched a transformational model of primary care inspired by the Alaskan Nuka system’s person-centred model of care in August 2016 and this is now successfully embedded into our multi-disciplinary team. The successful candidate would work closely with the existing Nurse Practitioner Team providing an extensive minor illness service plus alongside a GP to look after their defined patient list. Our aim is to optimise relationships and continuity in order improve health & wellness outcomes, use of health services and patient & staff experience.
Working in a small team with a defined patient list, you will be a key team member, responsible for case management, care coordination as well as routine practice nursing duties. Your role will be wide-ranging and will include, for example:
- Call triage and minor ailments advice
- Care planning, coordination and follow up
- Schedule management
- Managing prescriptions, results & referrals
- Monitoring chronic disease screening, smears and immunisations
- Helping patients navigate the system
- Supporting team development
- Routine practice nursing duties
Experience in some or all of the above would be desirable, although not essential, as training will be given to secure the right candidate.
