ABOUT THE ROLE
As a Regional Clinical Development Nurse at Barchester, you'll lead, support and continuously improve the clinical governance and quality of care for residents in our care homes in Somerset, Devon & Cornwall areas. Our ideal candidate will have a strong background working within a Care Home environment and be RGN qualified. Due to the nature of this role, a willingness to travel is essential (ideally suited to a driver).
You'll be expected to support the performance of each home ensuring it performs to the highest clinical standards. Reviewing the clinical governance database and KPIs of each home every month, you'll analyse the results and identify practical strategies to make sure all regulations are met - and ensure we continually improve the care we deliver, too.
Working closely with the Regional Director, improvement specialists and senior clinical staff in each home, you'll support the continual improvement of standards and help implement key actions to address any issues which arise. Whether you're organising new training, helping attract key senior clinical staff, or delivering clinical investigations, your leadership skills and passion for delivering the best will make a real difference to the residents in our care.
To join us as a Regional Clinical Development Nurse at Barchester, you'll need to be a Registered Nurse (RGN) with a current NMC registration. You must also provide evidence of continued professional development and have a strong understanding of current regulatory requirements. An experienced nurse, you'll have worked in a care home environment and are a confident clinical mentor, including with newly-qualified nurses. Your leadership skills, sharp analytical mind and the ability to share knowledge, build relationships, and deliver on your action plans enables you to deliver impressive results.
As well as a competitive salary, Barchester offers one of the best rewards packages in the care sector. Your generous benefits would include:
• Company car, mobile phone and laptop
