Details of Service Cork University Hospital (CUH) is the largest acute hospital in the country. The hospital is a primary teaching hospital with close alliances to University College Cork (UCC), nursing, medical and allied health professional training. The hospital also plays a central role in the management of co-located services on site. It is the only Level 1 trauma centre for the Republic of Ireland – an accreditation given because of the very wide range of specialities delivered by the hospital – including Neurosciences, Cardiac Services, Orthopaedics, General Surgery, Renal, Internal Medicine, Vascular, Ophthalmology, Urology, Plastic Surgery, Maxillary-Facial, Paediatrics, Intensive Care, Oncology, Haematology, Obstetrics, Gynaecology and Neonatology and Emergency Medicine. CUH is the tertiary referral center for the HSE Southern area, and the supra regional area of Limerick, Clare, Tipperary, Waterford and Kilkenny. CUH therefore acts as a regional centre for secondary and tertiary care for the catchment population of 550,000 served by the HSE Southern area and a supra-regional center for a total a population of 1.1 million. In 2019 CUH had 69,982 presentations to the Emergency Department, 222,115 outpatient attendances and 31,769 inpatient discharges.

Cork University Hospital has very strong relationships with each of the six schools within the Science Faculty of UCC and this is a key area for future development to maximise the opportunities for both the service and academia. Reconfiguration of Services Cork & Kerry The Reconfiguration roadmap was published on the 22nd November 2011. It outlines a plan of how, why and where we deliver our acute hospital services. The roadmap provides for the first time in this region, a plan that has been agreed between all six acute hospitals on how services should be re-organised in order to ensure the best possible healthcare system for people in Cork and Kerry. Care is delivered in a variety of settings and new approaches and models of care to follow the care demands of the health service are being advanced within the context of overall healthcare reform, to include Slaintécare.

The Respiratory service is equally augmented by an experienced interdisciplinary team compromising of Clinical Nurse Specialists, Physiotherapists and Pulmonary Function Therapists. A diverse scope of services are functioned by this expert group including inpatients, outpatients, emergency admissions, outreach clinics, ambulatory care, interventional procedures and rehabilitation services (Respiratory).

The value of the nursing contribution as a distinct profession must be safeguarded and consolidated in the development of new services led by Advanced Nurse Practitioners complimenting rather than replacing current services delivered by Doctors (NMBI 2017). The candidate ANP (Respiratory) process is to enable the individual nurse to meet the NMBI criteria for registration as an Advanced Nurse Practitioner as set out in Advanced Practice (Nursing) Standards of Registration (NMBI 2017). This process is facilitated under the direction of the Health Care Providers Advanced Practice stakeholder Governance group. The cANP (Respiratory) will undertake the academic preparation to achieve the knowledge base required to meet the criteria. He/ She will develop the clinical skills to attain the necessary competencies and the reflection process that accompanies this learning will enable the candidate to recognise the leadership skills that are essential to execute the post.
