New Year – New Challenge – New Horizons

Would you like to start 2018 with a new role in a dynamic and forward thinking Emergency Department, which strives to place all patients with the right service, at the right time within the right environment for their clinical need. If so, this role could be for you!

Following the introduction of the Acute Medical Model (AMM) within the Emergency Department (ED) at Scarborough Hospital exciting changes in to the way we deliver Emergency Care are being implemented. In a bid to develop the AMM and build on its success to date we are looking to recruit an Advanced Clinical Practitioner (ACP) to join our existing team.

The ED team has a wide ranging skill set, which has recently been enhanced by the introduction of the ACP role, a role that is now pivotal in the safe delivery of a quality service for every patient that comes through the department. The ACP role encompasses the assessment, management and referral / discharge of patients who present with a broad range of undifferentiated conditions, including both illness and injury.

Applicants will need to be able to demonstrate current competence in the relevant ACP domains (adult and paediatric) in line with the Royal College of Emergency Medicine ACP curriculum, and will need to have successfully completed a recognised ACP programme. A robust clinical portfolio is a key requirement, and this should demonstrate that the applicant has achieved core competencies, as well as those specifically for minors, majors and resus. There also needs to be evidence of completion, or working towards completion, of a Master’s Degree or Doctorate which includes Advanced Clinical Practice.

This role includes nights and weekends.
