£37,152 - £43,994 p.a inc HCAS pro rata

CNWL (Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust) has almost 7,000 staff providing integrated healthcare to a third of London's population, Milton Keynes and areas beyond. We involve service users, carers, the public, staff and partner organisations in the way that we are run.

Our catchment area spans diverse communities, with over 100 first languages spoken. It contains areas of great affluence as well as areas of much deprivation. We are committed to providing services that meet the needs of the people who use them, and we actively encourage involvement from local people who can help make a difference. We’re proud of our diversity and we continue to undertake new initiatives to advance equality for LGBT+, BME and people with disabilities to promote good relations and understanding between our staff.

We are recognised locally, nationally and internationally for providing high quality, innovative healthcare. We aim to employ only the best people, and our experts are frequently called upon to contribute to national health strategy and policy, and many models of our care have been adapted for use in other countries.

We offer a generous relocation package (subject to eligibility assessment) and flexible working options, including bank assignments for most roles. See attached Staff Reward and Wellbeing Handbook detailing our benefits, discounts and wellbeing intiatives for staff.

Become part of our team. We care for you as much as you care for others.

Community-based health care in Ealing has undergone a transformation. West London NHS Trust, in partnership with Central and North West London NHS Trust, (CNWL) the Hillingdon Hospitals NHS Trust and some other smaller providers, including third sector, have formed a partnership to provide integrated community health services in Ealing. The total value of the new 10 year contract is about £50m per year.

We have also committed to invest in improved links with local voluntary sector organisations (for example ECIL, Ealing Dementia Concern, Ealing Mind) and other community assets for innovation and flexibility.

Our ambition is for community health services that we will provide for adults and children, to be easy to access and coordinated around each individual’s needs. Bringing community services into a previously mental health focused trust is going to enable us to truly integrate care.

Whilst not part of the formal partnership, we will be working closely with the GPs, acute hospitals and social care. Our aim is to move services into a locality based structure wrapped around geographically placed groups of GPs.
