Norfolk Community Health and Care NHS Trust is an organisation assessed as being ‘Outstanding’ by Care Quality Commission in 2018, the highest possible rating and the first stand-alone NHS community trust in the country to be awarded the title.

 

We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced and enthusiastic nurse to join our small team of Community Matron’s in Norwich Locality.

 

The Community Matron and Case Management Service works to prevent unnecessary admission to hospital for patients with chronic health conditions and a history of multiple hospital admission / GP visits. We do this by supporting patients in the management of their long term health through education, optimising medications, planning for exacerbation, giving guidance on healthcare options, providing emotional / psychological support for patients and their carers, and guiding ‘End of Life’ care for non-malignant chronic disease.

 

You will have a proven background in nursing and a good understanding of long term conditions and their effects on patients living in the community. The ability to complete comprehensive patient assessments and plan individualised care is essential when managing patients with long term conditions and any candidate should have good track record in the area of holistic multi-disciplinary assessments. The Community Matron post will involve close working and supervision of the Case Manager, but will also need to demonstrate an ability to work as an autonomous practitioner.

 

Norfolk Community Health and Care is keen to deliver mobile working and any applicant must be able to engage with current and future transformation projects.

 

Norwich locality is working alongside its commissioners under the One Norwich programme to develop community based services that support patients to remain at home and receive the services they require.

You will receive support and development through in service training, regular appraisals, a personal development plan and clinical supervision.
