Oxygen Nurse Band 6/7 - depending on knowledge and experience

Full time - part time considered

The Redbridge Respiratory Team are looking to appoint a self-motivated Community Respiratory Nurse to cover maternity leave for the Oxygen Caseload. This post is primarily to assess and review patients requiring oxygen therapy in the community as well as supporting the general Respiratory team.   

The role offers an opportunity to work with a dynamic multidisciplinary respiratory team to improve the care and management of patients requiring oxygen, performing assessments and reviews in a complex cohort of patients with long term conditions.

The post holder will provide an autonomous inclusive nurse led community oxygen assessment service in Redbridge, working closely with all members of the multi-disciplinary team. The post will consist of both clinic and home visit assessments and ongoing care.

You should have experience in general respiratory nursing and ideally hold a diploma or recognised respiratory course. Community experience is desirable.   Caseload management experience is essential. Relevant training will be provided if necessary.  Applicants must have the ability to travel across Redbridge in order to carry out  home visit assessments.

If you feel you have the right skills, knowledge and enthusiasm then we would welcome an application.

If you are shortlisted for this post, your interview will take place on 2 September 2019.
