Practice & Minor Injury Nurse

Aviemore Medical Practice

20 – 37.5 hours per week, Permanent

An excellent opportunity has arisen for a Registered Nurse to join our Practice Team at Aviemore Medical Practice. We aim to deliver high quality care to our patients both within the practice setting, and the enhanced minor injuries unit. 

As well as general practice nursing skills, the successful applicant must have proven experience in chronic disease management, specifically respiratory illnesses and/or diabetes, within a General Practice setting. Possessing skills in minor injuries would be an advantage, although support and training will be provided.  Our ideal candidate is highly motivated, keen to learn, and flexible.

Aviemore Medical practice is a friendly seven doctor medical practice offering medical services for residents and visitors to Aviemore and the surrounding areas. We feel privileged to work in an area of outstanding natural beauty – the stunning Cairngorms National Park.

Our practice is unique in many ways – we operate a designated casualty unit which provides A&E cover for locals and the many visitors to our area. In addition to the General Medical Services and A&E work we also operate a drop in Sexual Health Clinic and enjoy working with many different visiting specialities who work from the Aviemore Health Centre. We now have a well developed Personal Health Planning programme (based on House of Care) for advance management of chronic disease, and are keen for this position to continue leading that.

Informal visits to the practice are welcome. For further details or to arrange a suitable visit time, please contact: kim.dixon@nhs.scot or 01479 810258

To apply for the position please email a copy of your CV and a covering letter to:

Practice Manager, Kim Dixon, kim.dixon@nhs.scot
