We are looking to recruit an experienced nurse or AHP to lead the transformation of the Hyper acute phases of our neuroscience pathways. An initial focus will be our stroke pathway. We are the largest stroke Centre in the East of England, with over 1200 stroke patients arriving into the Emergency Department each year. Our goal is to become an A rated SSNAP service in 2020. This role is instrumental in achieving this goal, as it will lead the transformation of the pathways into the Hyper Acute Stroke Unit.

Now is the perfect time to join our team, as we have recently been recognised as a Neurosciences Centre, and are currently developing a local Mechanical Thrombectomy service. Our Neuroscience Centre is rapidly expanding, as we develop and deliver a wide range of specialist services for the residents of Norfolk and Norwich. Over the coming months and years we envisage more opportunities will arise, we want our teams to work together to develop the very best service and identify opportunities for expansion. This role could be the start of a really rewarding career within Neurosciences.

As post holder you will:

  • be involved in the direct care of patients, as well as lead others to ensure consistent high quality care
  • demonstrate and expand your specialist knowledge
  • work closely with the Neurosciences Senior Management Team,
  • have a high degree of autonomy to build and support the MDT
  • improve our patients experience of pathways
  • be involved in training and educating both your team and colleagues from other departments.
