Dermatology Clinical Nurse Specialist

Surrey

WANTED

A minor surgery experienced Dermatology Clinical Nurse Specialist to work in a community based commissioned service.

We are a small, independent, NHS commissioned provider of minor operations based in Sutton and Leatherhead in Surrey.

We require a skilled operator to carry out minor surgical procedures (excisions and biopsies – no flaps or grafts) on a Tuesday and, depending on workload, Fridays. One Saturday per month also available.

The total operating time is 3.5 hours per session and two sessions in a day.

One “slot” is 30mins with 6 single slot patients booked per session and a 30mins overrunning provision per session.

Larger lesions get double slots.

There is a 30mins lunch break between sessions.

The timings are 9am – 12.30 then 1pm to 4.30pm. We can be flexible, to an extent, with these times but are limited by the histology collection van and the cleaners.

The CNS will work a parallel list with our lead clinician on premises / in the room next door.

Full support will be given.

Please note, we are an independent provider and this work is not covered by Crown Indemnity.

Indemnity cover for minor surgery nurses is extremely expensive and has been difficult to negotiate but we will fund the successful candidate’s indemnity insurance pending commitment and retention.

The post will also be subject to approval of the CNS by our NHS commissioners.

Each operator works with one assistant (Nurse or HCA). Our records and paperwork are straightforward.

Friendly, cohesive atmosphere.

Pay: £330 per day (for 2 sessions).

Please email CV and any supporting information/ queries to manu.mehra@nhs.net
