North West Hospital and Health Service (NWHHS)

  • Unique locations, friendly communities
  • Regional, rural and remote $$$ incentives

Covering a region of approx. 300,000 km2 the NWHHS delivers effective, high quality, and accessible public hospital and healthcare services to the residents of the Outback communities within North Western Queensland and the Gulf of Carpentaria.

As an employer we focus on positive health outcomes for the people of our region and embrace innovative ways to achieve this and support our staff to flourish in their careers.

If you are finding the urban healthcare environment a little uninspiring, you will likely find substantial satisfaction in the challenge of a diverse casemix and meaningful community engagement on offer when working at regional, rural or remote facilities.

The Benefits

Our HHS values professionalism, leadership capability, excellence and resilience in our staff. To attract top tier candidates we offer generous remuneration packages and employment benefits that include staff accommodation, regional/rural/remote $$$ incentives, salary sacrificing options, 17.5% recreational leave loading, up to 12.5% employer superannuation contribution, shift allowances, professional development assistance, flexible working arrangements, access to corporate discounts, and employee wellness and assistance programs.

The role

Mount Isa Community and Primary Health Care provide expert support, advice and collaborative planning to ten facilities that comprise the North West Hospital and Health Service region. It promotes the Enhanced Model of Primary Health Care as the preferred framework for delivery of rural health services, through training, education, strategic planning and resource allocation.

The Nurse Navigator Service is a state-wide model of care designed to provide support to patients with complex health conditions requiring a high degree of clinical care. This integrated and proactive approach works across system boundaries, including close partnership with patients and families, other health and allied-health services ensuring patients receive timely and appropriate care.

This position forms part of this state-wide model of care and is responsible for providing advanced professional and clinical leadership in the coordination and delivery of comprehensive and complex care, education and consultancy and portfolio management to ensure safe practice and high quality outcomes.

The role will contribute to positive patient outcomes by practising at an advanced level demonstrated by applying expert knowledge, advanced communication and complex decision-making skills and clinical competencies for extended practice relevant to clinical context of chronic cardiovascular disease encompassing heart failure, coronary artery disease, arrythmia management, cardiac risk factor management, structural heart disease in adult cardiology and rheumatic heart disease.

Mandatory requirements are a Master of Nursing - Nurse Practitioner qualification and appropriate registration/licences. Pre-employment screening, including criminal history checks and Vaccine Preventable Diseases (VPD) risk role compliance, will be conducted for the successful candidate.
