This is a great opportunity to gain further experience and development as a Senior Nurse in the community setting.

You will be supported by senior nurses within the team and will be given an opportunity to develop case management skills and lead a dedicated team of Nursing staff in order to provide expert, quality Nursing care to patients in their own homes. You will work as part of an integrated health and social care team providing nursing assessment, care and treatment to adults and older people living at home who have physical health needs which may be complex and long term.

We are looking for ambitious, innovative and passionate nurses to join our team who will be instrumental in ensuring the continued provision of excellent services.
