A bit about the role…
An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Lecturer Practitioner to work with the General Practice Nursing programme development team at the University of Salford, and partner health and social care provider organisations across the Greater Manchester locality.
The General Practice Nurse workforce is a vital part of the delivery of the NHS Long-Term Plan (2019). There is however a significant challenge in recruiting and retaining nurses to this field of practice (NHS England, 2016). To address this challenge, the University of Salford is co-developing a General Practice Nursing programme to attract, train and retain General Practice Nurses.
The General Practice Nursing programme is part of the MSc Integrated Care programme and the successful candidate will work closely with colleagues in this team and in partnership with stakeholders across primary care, community and integrated care.
This is a fixed term/secondment, part time post of 15 hours per week for 18 months and will require remote working as part of the programme team at the University of Salford and partners in General Practice, and wider community.
So what about you?
The successful candidate will be a General Practice Nurse responsible for working with the programme team in developing teaching and learning resources for the General Practice Nurse programme but will also contribute General Practice Nursing initiatives in the Integrated care programme.
We welcome applications from General Practice Nurses with experience of teaching and supervising others in any setting and an understanding of primary care, community and integrated care services. You will have an understanding of the NHS and current health care professional education programmes and will have excellent communication, organisation and planning skills with the ability to teach, supervise and assess students.
What’s in it for you?
With over 200 languages spoken across Greater Manchester, we want to create an inspirational, inclusive learning and working environment, celebrating the diversity of our University community in our everyday conversations. Our student population is already incredibly diverse and we want to ensure this is reflected across our colleague profile as well.
To help you, we have wide ranging colleague support networks, promoting awareness events throughout the year and giving you the opportunity to share your experiences with others.
There is a varied benefits package available through ‘MySalford’ where you can tailor your benefits to suit your own lifestyle – everything from additional annual leave, savings on High Street shopping, travel discounts as well as health and wellbeing support. To maintain work/life balance (and to help you through this pandemic!) you can connect to work from wherever you are, whether it’s our Frederick Road Campus, MediaCityUK or your couch at home, the tools are there for you to do your best work from your chosen location.
What to do next?
If you are interested in this position, you are very welcome to contact Head of Adult Nursing at the University of Salford Vicky MacMillan via email firstname.lastname@example.org for an informal discussion. Interviews will take place on Friday 29th January 2021.
