NHS Scotland is committed to encouraging equality and diversity among our workforce and eliminating unlawful discrimination. The aim is for our workforce to be truly representative and for each employee to feel respected and able to give their best. To this end, NHS Scotland welcomes applications from all sections of society.

As a response to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, the Scottish Government in May 2020 gave NHS Board Nurse Directors additional accountability for the provision of nursing, leadership, support and guidance for Care Homes.

You will provide care homes and the CHPST with the support needed to improve knowledge in caring for residents with new and ongoing continence concerns.
