The Adult Community Service provides care to patients in clinics and their own homes and is pivotal in the prevention agenda. This includes supporting the care of frail older people with long term conditions.

As a Community Staff Nurse you will deliver a high quality service, working closely with GP’s and multi-disciplinary teams in addressing a range of care issues across the spectrum of health conditions, and preventing avoidable hospital admissions.

We are an innovative service covering GP practices in the South East Alliance and we are seeking enthusiastic and highly motivated nurses to join the ambulatory clinic and community setting.

The potholder will be part of the community service which involves treatment of primarily ambulatory/non housebound patients and also support the district nursing teams which run alongside this service. Within the clinics patients will require complex wound management, catheter care, drain management, Doppler studies etc. There will be an expectation the post holder will ALSO work across the community nursing teams with care provision in patients own homes when required.

You will work independently in a community setting, participating in the ongoing assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation of programmes of care, adhering to policies and procedures.

You must be a qualified nursing practitioner with current NMC registration. Previous experience of working in the community is not an essential requirement; however, you do need to be able to demonstrate a commitment to delivering high quality targeted personalised care.

 

Post holders will be required to work flexibly on a rota system across a 7 day working week.

 

The Trust operates a vehicle leasing scheme.
