An opportunity has arisen for an experienced Band 7 Parkinson Disease Practitioner to join our Adult Community Nursing Team at the Homerton Hospital. We are looking for a highly motivated nurse with a desire to promote and develop excellence in clinical practice.

This is an opportunity to be key to the achievement of a local, accessible and high quality service for the residents of the London Boroughs of City and Hackney diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease.

The successful candidate will have a proven track record of supporting patients with Parkinson's Disease, to improve their experience, quality of life and survival to enable them where possible in reaching their goal of self-management.

Through the application of clinical skills and evidence-based practice, you will ensure appropriate clinical interventions at each stage of the disease process to maximize the potential for self-management of the condition and improve quality of life.

By effective networking and appropriate referral across health, social services and the voluntary sector, the post holder will optimize the available resources to achieve a seamless care pathway reducing the potential for non-elective hospital admissions and institutional care.

You will have demonstrable excellent inter-personal and communication skills. You should have proven management and leadership skills as well as the ability to demonstrate initiative and innovation, effective communication skills and the ability to organise your own caseload.
