The Cardiology Team at the Norfolk & Norwich Hospital Trust are looking for an inspirational leader to head our Cardiac Rehabilitation Specialist Nurse Team. Based within the Cardiology Outpatients department the post holder will be responsible for managing an experienced team of cardiology rehabilitation specialist nurses ensuring the provision of our effective cardiac rehabilitation programme and ensuring that the programme evolves and develops to meet future challenges in line with national standards and the NHS long term plan.  The programme is delivered at the Norfolk & Norwich Hospital site, Cromer Hospital and community settings, seeing approximately 1000 patients a year.

Our values of People Focused, Respect, Integrity, Dedication and Excellence – PRIDE – are important to us and here’s how they relate to your work in this role:

The care we provide puts people at the heart of our service. This means that our patients and colleagues are our highest priority. We see over 40,000 patient consultations within our busy outpatients department and although the post holder will be primarily responsible for the cardiac rehabilitation service they will also work in partnership with the Outpatient charge nurse to ensure the effective running of the department. Feedback from the Rehabilitation Service consistently supports that we deliver first class care to our patients.

Our high quality services are based on respecting the wide range of people that access our care as well as those who provide it. We provide a variety of modes of rehabilitation delivery designed to meet their needs. Team working is vital and all the team is dedicated to provision of excellent care delivered with Integrity.

We strive for excellence and this is recognised at and national level. This year we expect to meet all the BACPR/NACR certification criteria. We are keen to share learning and network through local and national forums.

This is an exciting opportunity for someone with extensive experience of cardiac rehabilitation and a background of general cardiology and you will need to show us your vision for Cardiac Rehabilitation and how you will use our PRIDE values to lead and develop your team and service.
