CSH Surrey is Surrey’s largest and longest established NHS community services provider (since 2006). We are part of the NHS, so our 1500+ employees get NHS pay and pensions, and also receive the Outer London ‘High Cost Allowance’ of 5%.

Our nurses, therapists and support staff provide adult community health services in the mid and north west Surrey areas, and children’s community health services for the whole of the county. Together we serve a population of more than 1 million people.

In June 2017 our services received an overall ‘Good’ rating from the CQC, with ‘Outstanding’ for how caring our teams are. This is backed up by our annual staff survey, in which teamwork and manager support are always rated highly. CSH also genuinely puts patients first – our focus is always on ‘doing the right thing’ for patients and families, and our teams regularly go above and beyond to do this by removing barriers and finding solutions to provide the care and support they need.

We provide excellent training and development opportunities, including the care certificate, apprenticeships, numeracy and literacy courses, access to the Nursing Associate programme, and a wide variety of management and leadership courses and programmes. These are available to everyone and are nationally recognised Institute of Leadership and Management courses. We offer a supportive preceptorship programme for newly qualified nurses and a well-established rotational programme for therapists. Our nurses and therapists also benefit from access to bespoke clinical skills courses, which we run in-house and also through specialist hospitals (eg tracheostomy care). Our training provision always receives high scores in our annual staff survey.

The community is where it’s at! Nationally, and in Surrey, the focus is on shifting care back into the community and away from the acute hospitals, so there’s never been a better time to work in community services! We know some people, especially newly qualified clinicians, worry about going straight into community roles because they feel they will miss out on acute hospital experience. However, our district and children’s community nurses, matrons, staff nurses and carers urge you to think again! They choose to work in the community because they:

Enjoy becoming part of people’s lives, particularly at the start and end of life, and having the time to get to know patients and their families in a way that those working in the acute sector rarely can

They value being part of their local communities and feel privileged to care for children and adults in their own homes

With the health needs of adults and children becoming more complex, today’s community clinicians are highly skilled practitioners and develop a far broader range of clinical skills and knowledge than those in acute settings

Community services are often nurse or therapy-led, so our nurses and therapists really grow confidence and develop excellent decision-making and influencing skills and the ability to think independently

Our nurses and therapists also enjoy being part of bigger, multi-disciplinary health and social care teams, in which community, acute, primary care, mental health, education and social care colleagues work together to support children and adults to live safely in the community.

So if you want to be part of a passionate, person-focused community service, apply to CSH Surrey today!
