About the role and our team
Join our team as a PROACT Practitioner at Nobles Hospital on the Isle of Man!
You’ll be working with the team responsible for clinical support and education surrounding acutely unwell patients, incorporating the provision of selected Advanced Procedures, Resuscitation service, Critical Care Outreach, Acute Care Informatics and Training.
You will have a passion for delivering exceptional quality care to our acutely unwell patients and those at risk of deterioration. You will draw upon your experience of acute/critical care to develop clinically in this role, whilst supporting the Resuscitation service and Nursing Informatics Officer. You’ll also be able to use and develop your excellent teaching skills to ensure staff receive high quality education to competently manage patients who are deteriorating or in cardio-respiratory arrest.
Our PROACT Team is continuing to evolve and your role and responsibilities will inevitably vary to meet the needs of the acutely unwell patients and the staff caring for them. Your main duties will include:
Our clinical service is delivered over 7 days a week, whilst training and Resuscitation service duties are mainly Monday to Friday.
We welcome applications from suitably qualified and experienced Registered Nurses, Paramedics and Operating Department Practitioners.
If you are enthusiastic, flexible and dedicated to delivering the best care possible, we’d love to hear from you!
What can this role offer me?
By joining us you’ll be stepping away from NHS pressures and demands, as the Island’s healthcare system is similar but separate to the UK NHS.
You can take advantage of the excellent opportunities we provide for personal and professional development. This includes use of the well-resourced on-site education and training centre and the fantastic range of fully funded courses we support, such as Masters Degrees and Resuscitation Council courses.
You will also have the opportunity to undertake a supportive and structured development plan towards achieving a Band 7 post.
If you have already completed the Resuscitation Council Generic Instructor course and are working towards approved instructor status, or indeed are an experienced Resuscitation Officer with extensive experience in managing acutely deteriorating /critically ill patients; you will be awarded a Band 7 position on appointment.
