NHS Scotland is committed to encouraging equality and diversity among our workforce and eliminating unlawful discrimination. The aim is for our workforce to be truly representative and for each employee to feel respected and able to give their best. To this end, NHS Scotland welcomes applications from all sections of society.

We are currently seeking a highly skilled and motivated Senior General Practice Nurse/ANP to join our team.  The ideal candidate will possess strong leadership qualities and have a passion for clinical excellence in order to lead, champion and develop the nursing workforce and its contribution to the delivery and achievement of person-centred, safe and effective care for patients. As well as leadership, the post holder will provide clinical care within the practice.  This is a new post within our practice, offering an exciting opportunity for development. 

Based in Mid Ross in the Scottish Highlands, Alness and Invergordon Medical Practice has an overall population of 13,500 patients and is situated within easy commuting distance of the city of Inverness.  The Practice is based within modern premises on the Invergordon County Community Hospital site and in the neighbouring town of Alness, both of which are undergoing refurbishment work.

This is a forward-thinking Practice that has been successful in building a team of GPs with a range of special interests including palliative care, lifestyle medicine, medical technology and medical education.  We have been working closely with Medical Education Colleagues to develop and embed education and training within the practice; and have recently appointed an Education Lead from within the GP team to develop this further.  We envisage the Senior General Practice Nurse/ANP to contribute and lead the development of nursing within this strand of work.

The wider team includes ANPs, Practice Nursing and Health Care Assistants, alongside the extended multidisciplinary team including Pharmacotherapy, First Contact Physiotherapy, Primary Care Mental Health Workers and Community Link Workers.  The Practice has made strong links with High Life Highland to work together to establish a GP Movement and Activity Programme. Together with the support of our administration team, we strive to ensure there is plenty of opportunity to share ideas and take them forward.

NHS Scotland is reducing their full time working week from 37.5 to 37 hours per week from 1 April 2024 but with no change in pay.  This reduction will also be applied pro rata for part time staff.  This advert and any subsequent offer/contract of employment therefore reflects the new working hours.  However, as not all service areas will be able to adopt the 37 hour working week immediately from 1 April 2024, you may be required to work up to an additional 30 minutes per week for a temporary period for which you would be paid until the service you are working in changes rosters or working patterns to accommodate the new reduced working week.  If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Recruiting Board.
