If the answer is yes, then a move into Community Nursing Services is just for you.

LPT has received major financial investment to increase the size of our workforce to meet the needs of the Urgent Community Response agenda. With this investment we are working hard to continually improve our outcomes for patients and the working experience for our staff.

Our staff are very important to our patients, and these are some of the comments that have been received from our friends and family tests:

“I don’t know what I would do without the nurses”.

“It was lovely to see your smiling faces at my door”.

Our staff are very important to LPT, and this is what our staff say about working within Community Nursing Services:

“I feel supported by staff and management”.

“Autonomous working in the community is very rewarding”.

This is an exciting time for level 1 (Adult) Registered Nurses to become part of our Community Nursing Teams. Our recent investment has allowed us to increase the size of our teams so we have positions available in all of our County bases which are in Coalville, Hinckley, Loughborough and Barrow upon Soar. Working from these bases our teams offer Core Community Nursing, Rapid Response Nursing and Home First Nursing interventions to patients living in their own homes, residential homes and in local accessible clinics.

The service is provided Monday to Sunday between the hours of 08.00 and 22.00.

We would love to hear from you if you can:

  • Demonstrate your passion and ability to assess, plan, provide and evaluate evidence-based nursing care for patients experiencing a wide range of conditions.
  • Support our patients and work with people in an asset-based way that really enables them to live their optimum life, being self-caring and independent with their health needs where possible.
  • Work collaboratively, efficiently, and creatively with multi professional colleagues and partners with a focus on ‘Home First’ helping patients to avoid hospital admissions and where they do need a hospital stay facilitating timely and well supported discharge back home.

In return we would love to offer you:

  • A well-supported and individually tailored induction.
  • A professional development plan which supports your continuous learning and development.
  • Training and quality improvement opportunities.
  • A healthy work life balance with weekend working on a rota of one in three and no night shifts.

This is such an exciting time to be joining this transforming service. If you want to be the Nurse that really makes a difference, then we want you!
