Those new to this role will need a period of preceptor ship. This role will require personal resilience, management, clinical leadership and supervision and mentorship of others in the general practice nursing team and providing an effective learning environment for staff and students in the wider team. The role will require an innovative approach in supporting and developing new models and strategies for service delivery, usually incorporating inter-professional and inter-agency approaches to monitor and improve care.

  • Enhanced critical thinking and ability to critically analyse a broad range of policies, literature and evidence to support clinical practice.

  • Ability to analyse service provision in relation to both quality assurance and quality monitoring, and to focus on patient outcomes wherever possible.

  • Strong clinical leadership of the team and clarity of expectation of team members with respect to quality of care delivery and values inherent in nursing practice. Emotional intelligence to recognise pressures on staff and the development of mechanisms to support and develop staff to recognise the impact of caring for people who may be experiencing complex healthcare issues.

  • Enhanced knowledge of the local community and needs and resources available, and the ability to signpost people to appropriate resources.

  • Ability to work collaboratively with others to meet local public health needs for individuals, groups and the wider community. Build strong relationships with the secondary care teams, particularly for patients receiving shared care, to ensure an effective flow of patient information to ensure high-quality care.
