Frailty Matron

(25.5-30 hours per week)

Salary Dependent on experience

Carn to Coast is looking for an experienced nurse, who acting within their professional boundaries, will provide care for the presenting patient from initial history taking, clinical assessment, diagnosis, treatment, and evaluation of their care; they should demonstrate safe, clinical decision-making and expert care for patients within the general practice. The post holder will work collaboratively with the multi-disciplinary general practice team to meet the needs of patients, supporting the delivery of policy and procedures, and providing nurse leadership as required. In order to work at this level, experience in independent case management, long term conditions qualification and non-medical prescriber qualification must be met.

Carn to Coast Health Centres is an 11-Partner Cornish GP Practice serving over 30,000 patients. We have a main surgery in Pool and branch surgeries in Illogan, Camborne and St Day.

Our Practice has historically been at the forefront in establishing a highly skill-mixed approach and this has been extended by maximising the use of ‘additional roles’ within the North Kerrier West PCN (comprising our Practice and the neighbouring Praze Surgery). The mix now includes paramedics, mental health staff, clinical pharmacists and technicians, care co-ordination and physiotherapy, all supported by a substantial administrative team, whose role includes processing clinical correspondence and workflow (through Docman). Our ‘Klinik’ system uses AI to support our clinicians in triaging incoming contacts appropriately so that patients are engaged and brought in as appropriate.

Our catchment is broad with urban, rural and semi-rural elements including areas of deprivation which we seek to engage as part of a programme of population health management so that continuity of care is assured where it is most needed. There are also many areas of outstanding beauty all around us to attract those looking for a great place to live and work.

Notwithstanding the relatively large size of the practice, our ethos remains friendly, supportive and very informal in style. We look to everyone to make a contribution and be heard and are always looking at ways to improve and provide scope for advancement at all levels. (Our partnership already includes three partners who are not doctors.) We have regular meetings to discuss clinical issues, significant events, safeguarding etc. and have a strong emphasis on teamwork across the organisation, regardless of role and seniority.

These are challenging times across general practice, and we are confident that the innovative model we have developed and continue to refine is well suited to meet those challenges going forward and to embrace the increasing role of primary care networks within the system.

If you can see yourself thriving in a busy, demanding but highly supportive and progressive environment, then please apply via ref J180-A3712-22-4306.

Closing date 1st July 2022
