If you are a first level Registered Nurse or a Registered Pharmacist who thrives on working in a community setting and assessing and supporting people with their healthcare issues, we’re interested in speaking with you. We have a fantastic opportunity for a Non Medical Prescriber to join our team in North East Lincolnshire. 

With You is all about working with our clients to find the right path for them to get back to where they want to be and you will play an important role in that journey.

Working within one of our services is always busy, sometimes challenging but always rewarding.  We work collaboratively to provide the best support and treatment to anyone who needs it.

If this sounds like the kind of role that you’re looking for, please read on.

About the job

As a Non Medical Prescriber, you will be responsible for carrying out clinical assessment, diagnosis and clinical management in line with both With You and national regulations, policies and procedures.. You will be eager to keep up to date with developments in the treatments that you are prescribing and help With You to develop, implement and evaluate the interventions we use with our clients. This includes:

  • harm reduction; providing support and advice in relation to substance misuse
  • clinics; where we assess, screen and tirage clients, advising on detoxification where appropriate
  • vaccination and blood testing programmes

You will be used to working effectively as a healthcare professional, as part of a team and collaboratively with other social care contacts to deliver the best outcomes for clients.  It’s not just about those people who actively engage with our service though, you will also be reaching out to those in our communities to offer proactive support and education.

We are looking to speak with Registered Nurses or Pharmacists, who have successfully completed the supplementary/independent prescriber course and hold an appropriate entry on the NMC register or GPhC register. However, we are also keen to have conversations with those who have not yet undertaken a prescribing course and can discuss training opportunities for the right applicants. Please do get in touch with us for an informal discussion if you are an aspiring Non Medical Prescriber!
