An exciting opportunity has arisen in Victoria Hospital, Kirkcaldy for band 5 Registered Nurses to support, as part of the multidisciplinary team, the delivery of new models of care within 2 busy acute wards.

Ward 41 will open in early January 2018, initially until end of March 2018, caring for patients who require more complex discharge planning. The ward model will be supported by ‘Daily Dynamic Discharge’ methodology which has been developed by Scottish Government.

From early December 2017, ward 12 will increase bed numbers on a permanent basis from 16 to 23 beds and will continue to develop and embed the ‘Daily Dynamic Discharge’ methodology which it has recently introduced.

We require motivated Registered Nurses who are committed to multidisciplinary team working. As part of the multidisciplinary teams you will ensure the delivery of person-centred care and you will work closely with the Discharge Hub and other Health and Social Care colleagues to proactively manage the inpatient journey and discharge patients with appropriate support.

You should be able to work using your own initiative and have an active interest in mentoring students and junior staff. Venepuncture and cannulation skills are desirable but training can be provided. Good communication skills are essential.

Applications are welcome for full or part time hours. Hours will be worked to suit the needs of the service; including day duty, night duty and weekend working but flexible working opportunities are available.
