Job Description

The
Department of Rheumatology provides specialist management for bone and joint
disease in Grampian and consists of an Out Patient Department including a DXA
Bone Scanning Service and a Day Case Unit.
At present our very busy service generally operates Monday to Friday but
is driven by service demands. We
undertake a number of nurse led clinics and the Day Case Unit also undertakes a
range of infusion therapies to treat patients.
We work closely as a multi-disciplinary team in order to meet the
complex needs of our service users with a variety of long-term conditions.

We
are looking for a bright, motivated, hard working and enthusiastic Band 5
trained nurse to join our friendly team to work across our service. The
successful applicant will have an interest in rheumatology or long term disease
management and have the enthusiasm, ability and motivation to develop both themselves
and their skills and knowledge in this disease area. This is with a view to long term progression within the department as well
as meeting the ongoing needs of our whole service and our team.

Good
communication and organisational skills along with the desire or proven ability
to provide a good standard of care and to prioritise a workload is
essential. A willingness to be flexible across
the week and adaptable to develop our future service is essential. Motivation and enthusiasm to be trained to undertake
new and specialist skills/procedures such as venepuncture/cannulation, supporting
patient education/assessment and delivering infusion therapies is also required. Previous experience in infusion therapy,
outpatient clinics or long term conditions would be advantageous.
