Team working in OPD is at the heart of all we do. As a registered practitioner you will work alongside registered and unregistered staff all of whom are competent, committed and proud to deliver an excellent standard of care to our service users. As one of a small team of registered staff in outpatients, you will take a leading role in the management and delivery of outpatient services on day to day basis. The role will include organising resources, problem solving and communicating with the team and with service users to ensure services are delivered effectively and efficiently. Our goal is to exceed the expectations of service users!

In our quest to continually improve and develop our services, as a registered professional, the successful candidate will take a leading role in the implementation of changes and service improvements. You will also support and line manage more junior members of staff effectively to support them to achieve their full potential in this fast-paced evolving service. You will be supported by a dynamic band 7 Manager, and experienced energetic band 6 Deputy Managers.

At this time, we are looking for individuals with acute hospital our clinic experience, seeking to enhance and develop their leadership and management skills. We can accommodate full or part time working. Shift patterns are predominantly between 8am and 6.30pm with some evening and weekend working.
