An opportunity has arisen for a highly motivated, forward thinking and enthusiastic first level nurse to join our inpatient  pain team here in Lancashire Teaching Hospitals Trust. Our Trust provides a range of specialist tertiary services including cancer, renal, plastics, neurosciences and specialist mobility and rehabilitation. We are the major trauma and vascular centre for Lancashire and South Cumbria and deliver the latest treatment for many complex conditions.

 The successful candidate will have a minimum of 2 years post registration experience within an acute care setting and also experience of managing patients with various methods of pain management interventions. Ideally you will also have a good understanding of pharmacology and feel confident in discussing pain management strategies with patients. This post necessitates a large amount of teaching in both clinical and formal settings therefore it is essential that you are willing to participate in this.

 You will work as part of the team but you must also be capable of working autonomously and effectively with a wide range of professionals to facilitate the delivery of excellent pain management.

 Ideally we wish to recruit a nurse who has specialist experience in pain management but we would consider developing the right candidate for this post.

 Continuing professional development and support will be given.

 This post will be based at Preston but will involve working at the Chorley hospital site .

Interview date: Monday 7th January 2019
