We're looking for full-time and part-time Band 6 Health Visitors to join our Mid Essex Healthy Family Team, based within Chelmsford, Maldon, Springfield, Braintree and Witham to help us continue to change things for the better. 

Are you looking to join an NHS Health and Social Care partner which is striving to make positive changes? Would you like to work for an organisation where more than 9 out of every 10 of the people who use services would recommend them?

Since 2017, Virgin Care in partnership with Barnardos working together as The Essex Child and Family Wellbeing service have delivered innovative and refreshing health and social care pre-birth to 19 years services to Essex Families. We have developed our own unique approach where our patients are at the centre of everything we do and right now, we’re looking for a Health Visitor to join our Healthy Family Teams to help us continue to change things for the better.

Feel Proud

As the Heath Visitor you will be responsible for delivering Health Child programmes, working with multi-professional teams to facilitate multi-agency and interdisciplinary working.  You will promote and maintain an effective service to clients, using the assessment framework, communication, negotiation and collaboration.

You will work within the Children Act 2004 and act as an advocate for the voice of the child, and prescribe as appropriate from the Nurse Prescribers formulary. You will assess, plan, implement and evaluate packages of care. You will identify concerns and report and refer those directly to social care or with Clinical Leads, Named Nurse and Safeguarding Supervisors.
