We are delighted to announce that we have been rated as a “Good” organisation by CQC and our Adults Services were rated ‘Outstanding’ for caring.

B7 Clinical Lead, full-time, 12 months fixed term (Homeless Health Inclusion Team and the Tuberculosis Service) can be available as a job-share and secondment.

This role is a unique and exciting opportunity for a motivated and enthusiastic healthcare professional/senior nurse to transition into a clinical leadership position and to be part of two innovative forward thinking services; the Homeless Health Inclusion Team (HHIT) and the Tuberculosis (TB) Service. The ideal candidate will aspire to work in a senior leadership role with a strong desire for professional development, and have the drive to develop and specialise within this diverse field of nursing helping to shape these services for the city.

HHIT delivers transformational models of physical and mental healthcare to the Homeless, the Gypsy Traveller community, and sex working woman across Leeds via outreach and in-reach programmes in partnership with third sector partners, community members, GPs, and Leeds Teaching Hospital Trust. Building relationships with these vulnerable groups; assessing health needs; improving access to primary care and the wider health and social care services.

TB service is as much about public health as it is about clinical and nursing care which covers all age groups. It embraces the core elements of public health nursing: inequalities, prevention and health protection across the entire population, as well as requiring sound knowledge of the physical aspects of the disease and the emotional, psychological and social impact on individuals, their families and friends.

This role requires multi agency working with all partners across Leeds including Public Health England, Public Health within Leeds Council, Leeds Teaching Hospital Trust and the wider stakeholders. Organisations who work with marginalised groups such as Probation, Managed Area Police (MAP) Sex working projects, Leeds Gate, Leeds Housing Options, Beacon Emergency Housing, St Anne's Day Centre, Adult Safeguarding, and Adult Social Care - therefore highly effective communication skills are a must.

Experience of working within a community setting is essential along with experience of managing a caseload. You will have experience with vulnerable and disenfranchised adults, have knowledge around inequalities in health and social care and previous links with safeguarding and multi-agency working. You will be compassionate and caring, and be able to use reflection to help the team build resilience working in often difficult and possibly challenging settings. You will have excellent conflict resolution and negotiation skills with an empathetic and non-judgmental approach.

You will have a desire to change systems so that all population groups are represented. You will be a strong advocate; both at patient level but also at systems level. You will have a strong sense of social justice. You're dynamic, innovative, and committed to delivering a safe and effective service and a high standard of healthcare. In return there will be a robust training program and the opportunity to develop knowledge and skills within a leadership role.
