Are you an Advanced Nurse Practitioner looking for a new challenge? Want a role that involves face to face patient care alongside audit, service evaluation and quality improvement? Then the VTE Advanced Nurse Practitioner role could be the job for you. This post is 30 hours per week.
The VTE role sits within the Patient Safety Team, within our Trust Head Quarters division, covering core hours and is part of the anticoagulation team. There is scope to develop the VTE service within this role. The role works closely with the haematology and patient safety team, but is independent and autonomous with its own daily workload.
UHS has over 1000 inpatient beds and is a regional centre a large number of services including trauma, cardiothoracics and neurosciences. This means the workload is always varied and always interesting.
As part of the anticoagulation team you will be responsible for leading audits and investigations into hospital VTE. You will work closely with the haematology and patient safety teams and assist in the running and management of nurse led clinics. This is an exciting time as there is scope to change the way VTEs are investigated in line with the new patient safety incident response framework.
We are looking for experienced practitioners who are capable of independent and autonomous working. We are looking for an individual who is looking for a new challenge and is interested in service development and has a passion for improvement.

Experience in service improvement/ project management would be beneficial.
