Frimley Health is a Trust where great care and great careers go hand in hand. We’re three hospitals working closely with each other and with the communities we serve in Surrey, Berkshire, Hampshire and Buckinghamshire  - our organisation has brought Heatherwood and Wexham hospitals into the fold of Frimley Park Hospital and its wider community services.

You’ll find the highest standards of clinical excellence across our locations and a friendly, supportive, open culture that brings everyone together. For our team it means a great day-to-day working experience – in a Trust with strong leadership, a clear sense of direction and an exciting vision for the future. The investment and changes ahead make this an exciting place to be. You can play your part in delivering exceptional patient care, while continuing to grow, develop and progress through first class learning and training.

An exciting opportunity has arisen within the Community Nursing Services for a Senior Tissue Viability Nurse Specialist to support our Community Teams within the North East.

The role involves working for the Senior Matron in promoting, influencing and implementing tissue viability and wound care management throughout the community division.

You will be responsible as the TVN lead for steering the professional standards with the weekly community pressure ulcer panels. You will provide the education, actions and learning alongside the Senior Matron to ensure timely, safe implementations of care are provided to our patients

You will be expected to attend the Trust Serious Incident Panel should this be required to provide expert advice so that shared learning is achieved.

The ideal candidate will have a clinical background, the ability to work independently, have a positive “can do” attitude, and be able to use their own initiative.
