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.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic and motivated Cardiac Advanced Nurse Practitioner to work as part of the Integrated Team in Caithness delivering cardiology care to patients within the area.              

We are looking for a motivated individual with relevant experience working in Heart Failure and Cardiac Rehab, but further training in specific areas of clinical nursing care and skills will be available. This is also an opportunity to help develop ongoing cardiology care within the area as part of the ongoing Caithness Redesign of Healthcare Services.

The role involves specialist clinical nursing skills to support patients and carers to live a full life after a cardiac event and support them back into the normal activities. You must be able to demonstrate continued professional development in this area and be willing to continue to develop the service as part of the wider team. You will have good communication, time management and organisational skills to allow you to manage a caseload and work with the wider multi-disciplinary team.  You will need to have the ability to work alone and on your own initiative, but still be a team player.  You must be adaptable, self-motivated and able to respond to the challenges this role will provide.

A driving licence is essential for this post and applicants should have access to their own vehicle for work purposes.

This is a permanent part-time post of 22.3 hours worked as per service requirements.

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.
