Band 5 - Healthy Child Programme Nurse


£25,655 to £31,534 (Full time, Part time Flexible working)


Come and join the LPT family!


Work with us and you’ll work with one of the most forward thinking, pioneering and well-respected NHS Trusts in the UK.


We have a supportive and productive environment where everyone plays an important part in our success and everyone’s contribution is valued.


Our vision is to deliver excellent local services which improve the health of our communities.


To achieve this, we need outstanding people who share our values Trust, Respect, Integrity and Compassion.


If you’re looking for a new challenge and share in our ambition to create a high quality, compassionate care, and well-being for all then why not join the Health Visiting Service (Healthy Together). Our teams are full of committed and skilled people who want to deliver the best possible care for children and their families.

You will be well supported and offered bespoke training for this role. We currently have vacancies at various county locations throughout Leicestershire and Rutland.

You will be offering a whole family approach working with children 0-5 and the wider family. You will have independence in organising your workload but have the reassurance of being supported by the wider team. Working in the community has its own challenges but equally can be very rewarding, as you will come away knowing that you have supported the family and made a difference.


Here are some more great reasons to come and work for us:


  • You will be encouraged to fulfil your potential and flourish in terms of personal achievement and professional development.


  • You will gain valuable experience which will provide opportunity to apply for a fully funded post-graduate course to become a Band 6 Specialist Community Public Health Nurse.


  • We offer a range of flexible working options to support staff achieve a good work/home life balance. We also practice agile working.
