Nurses (B5) or Nurse Associates (B4) (Archer Ward, Louth Hospital):

We are Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust (LCHS), the primary community healthcare provider in Lincolnshire delivering community-based services aimed at supporting people to manage their own health closer to home an reducing the need for people to go into acute hospitals. We are rated ‘Outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission and are playing an integral part in shaping future health service provision countywide alongside partner health and social care organizations.

There are 16 inpatient rehabilitation beds incorporating four palliative care beds, allowing patients who are over their acute phase of illness to be transferred closer to home to continue their care. Incorporated within Archer Ward is The Cawthorpe Suite which is a six chair unit focusing on ambulatory care and treatment for patients requiring day attendance for care/treatment. The unit is open Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm excluding bank holidays.

We have an opportunity for a number of Nurses or Nurse Associates to join our dedicated teams, with both full and part time opportunities available. This opportunity could also be suitable for a newly qualified nurse looking for the first step in their healthcare career.

Good communication skills, both oral and written are also required, as well as being able to demonstrate evidence of team working.

There will also be the benefit of a progressive development plan to enhance their current skills in a variety of medical competencies. At LCHS we focus on ‘growing our own’ by prioritizing development opportunities and supporting growth.

Lincolnshire is a wonderfully diverse place to live; a thriving University City at its heart, with the rolling hills of the Wolds, the wildlife of the fens, and a 30 mile stretch of beautiful sand along our East coast.
