Passionate about making lives better, Bupa is dedicated to clinical excellence - inspiring and supporting our nurses to put people at the heart of everything they do. That's because with no shareholders to answer to, we're free to concentrate on the needs of our patients. And so are you. Join us and you will be well looked after too, with a great range of benefits and professional development to help you build the kind of nursing career you've always wanted.

What we expect from you

You are a Registered Nurse with the COPD Diploma or other respiratory qualification. You care about clinical excellence. You believe in the importance of the right things, done well. And you will thrive in a dynamic, fast paced environment.

About the role

The impact you will have on patients lives will go far beyond care - giving them independence, choice and privacy. You will get to know them, and their families, enabling you to follow personal care plans that really are as unique as every individual.

You will be responsible for leading specialist COPD clinics including oxygen assessment and pulmonary rehabilitation programmes, assessing and managing patients in the community setting with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.

Within the role you will maintain patients in their home environment by implementing self management systems to reduce the number of avoidable admissions and improve patient quality of life.

You will have a current NMC registration and hold a full EU driving licence.
