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.

We are looking for a highly motivated, innovative nurse interested in joining a small, dedicated team working as an integral part of the OHPAT (Outpatient/Home Parenteral Anti-infective Therapy) service.

The ideal candidate will have excellent clinical skills and experience of multi disciplinary team working, as well as the drive and ability to effect change, and enhance the delivery of safe intravascular therapy within the organisation.

The post holder will be an autonomous practitioner who will be expected to provide expertise in relation to the clinical assessment of patients prior to placement, care and management of intravascular devices including PICC and midlines, providing technical/maintenance support for intravascular devices.

The post holder will participate in the delivery of Trust intravenous therapy administration and cannulation study days including the education of medical and nursing colleagues in all matters pertaining to vascular access. The post holder will provide clinical expertise to the Practice Development Team on aspects of care relating to intravascular devices. You will need to have excellent communication skills and be able to manage challenging and difficult situations.

Any training required will be provided by the Trust.

The post holder will be based primarily at the Wexham Park Hospital in Slough but will be required to travel to other Trust sites in particular Heatherwood Hospital in Ascot. Car owner/driver essential
