Vacancy – Advanced Nurse Practitioner (Triage)

We have a vacancy for a 2 day a week Advanced Nurse Practitioner to work in our Same Day Team, working Monday and Wednesday each week from 8:30am to 6pm with a 1hour unpaid lunch break. The role is to triage patients who have made contact via digital means or called in to seek advice from a healthcare professional. You will need to prioritise care and direct to the most appropriate clinician; this will involve telephone and/or video consultations and diagnosing, treating and prescribing for patients within the boundaries of competence and recognising where support may be needed. Where appropriate, patients may also need to be invited to the Surgery for a face to face consultation for you to safely diagnose, treat and prescribe within the boundaries of your competence. Follow up appointments may be arranged where deemed appropriate and safe; these could be via telephone, video or face to face.

Some aspects of the work may be repetitive and challenging but very rewarding and you will be fully supported by our Same Day Team Lead who is a very experienced Advanced Nurse Practitioner along with a Duty GP assigned from the GP Partners and Salaried GPs on a rota basis. We also have another Advanced Nurse Practitioner starting with us in September, working Mondays to Wednesdays.  We also have Patient Pathways Leads to support the Same Day Team as well as work with eConsults, 2 week waits, referrals and tasks and we have upskilled our Patient Services Team to assist with workflow and documentation management. There is also a Prescribing team led by a Senior Pharmacy Technician and we have a Pharmacist supporting us on a part-time basis from our Primary Care Network.

We are looking for an Advanced Nurse Practitioner who may be either recently qualified or experienced, although we are looking for someone who has at least 1years experience within Primary Care or a ‘first presentation’ setting in some capacity and preferably also has experience of telephone triage work. You do need to be compassionate, resilient, calm under pressure, adept at problem solving, have excellent communication skills and have a teamwork mentality with a good sense of humour. Ideally you will be proactive when it comes to quality improvement, open to new ideas, passionate about patient care and wellbeing, and inspired by the wider NHS plans and opportunities, such as Primary Care Networks. In return we can offer:

  • Competitive salary with detailed pay scale
  • An established Practice with energy and appetite for growth and finding new ways of working
  • Collaborative working across all teams and with our Primary Care Network and other groups looking at the wider locality/population
  • Good Practice staff reward scheme
  • Proactive staff wellbeing and support of work-life balance – we are currently working on achieving our Wellbeing Charter accreditation
  • Encouragement and support with external interests and opportunities you may have
  • We endeavour to encourage all staff to reach their potential and share their skills and passions within healthcare with plenty of scope to do so between the Practice and our Primary Care Network.

If you would like to arrange a visit to the Practice to gain more information about Cricketfield Surgery and the role then please contact the Practice Manager, Jennifer Wain –
