NHS District Nurse/Caseload Holder (Band 6)

West of Caithness Community Nursing Team

Part Time, Permanent, 29.7 hours per week

Salary: £37,831 – £46,100 pro-rata

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic and motivated Band 6 District Nurse to work as part of the West Caithness Community Nursing Team, based in Thurso, delivering nursing care within patients’ home environments, managing caseload, support and supervising B5, B3 and students on placement. The role will entail that you will process a variety of clinical skills and be able to demonstrate continued personal development. You will have good communication and personal skills, time management and organisational skills. You will need to have the ability to work alone and on your own initiative but still be a team player. You must be adaptable, self-motivated and able to respond to challenges.

This is permanent part-time post of 29.7 hours per week, covering across a 7-day rota in accordance with service requirements.

NHS Scotland is reducing their full time working week from 37.5 to 37 hours per week from 1 April 2024 but with no change in pay. This reduction will also be applied pro rata for part time staff.  This advert and any subsequent offer/contract of employment therefore reflects the new working hours.  However, as not all service areas will be able to adopt the 37 hour working week immediately from 1 April 2024, you may be required to work up to an additional 30 minutes per week for a temporary period for which you would be paid until the service you are working in changes rosters or working patterns to accommodate the new reduced working week.  If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Recruiting Board. 

A full driving licence is essential for this post and a pool car will be available. Applicants are required to be fully registered with NMC UK as with valid PIN Number.
