The Role 

An exciting opportunity has become available for the recruitment of an Advanced Clinical Practitioner (ACP) within our Emergency Department. We are looking for an experienced ACP who will help to shape and develop our Emergency service. You will be responsible for assessing, diagnosing, interpreting investigations and treating patients and providing day-to-day support to the medical and nursing team within the Emergency Department. Successful ACP’s will be passionate about their role, its development and achieving better outcomes for patients. You will be required to possess an MSc in Advanced Practice, or working towards (or equivalent clinical Master’s Degree), certification in Independent and Supplementary prescribing and able to demonstrate possession of core skills in Advanced Life Support. Whilst the ideal candidate will have Emergency Care experience, we would welcome applications from ACPs with relevant experience in other specialities/backgrounds. In return, we will support any transition for those wishing to change specialities.

This role is expected to be cross site between The Royal Shrewsbury Hospital and The Princess Royal Hospital.

Our Hospitals

The Trust which runs Shropshire’s two acute hospitals, The Royal Shrewsbury Hospital (RSH) and The Princess Royal Hospital (PRH) in Telford, is developing a culture of safest and kindest care through its partnership with the Virginia Mason Institute (VMI) – the USA’s ‘Hospital of the Decade’. On the back of this exciting partnership, we launched our Transforming Care Production System, housed in our Transforming Care Institute, and already we have made significant improvements to patient care. It is an area of work that CQC inspectors described as “outstanding practice” during their most recent visit. While the CQC report says the Trust ‘requires improvement’ the organisation is on a journey to provide the safest and kindest care in the NHS and we were delighted to be rated ‘good’ for caring and medical care.

Every individual in our organisation makes a significant contribution to the care we are able to deliver to our patients and their families, and as employers we recognise and celebrate the outstanding efforts of our staff through our monthly and annual VIP (Values in Practice) Awards. The awards celebrate the fantastic work that takes place across our Trust.
