Nurse Community Out of Hours District Nursing

Job Reference: 412-COMM-847-879

Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
Nursing Out Of Hours Team
£24,214 to £30,112 pa

Hi – we are the Out of Hours District Nursing Team. We provide nursing care between the hours of 17:00 and 08:00 for the patient population of 27 GP surgeries across South Cheshire and Vale Royal.

We have a wealth of experience - some of the staff completing more than 25 years’ service with the team, whilst others have experience in various primary and secondary care settings.

We are looking for 1 or 2 Staff Nurses to cover a total of 16 hours per week, between the hours of 18:00 – 22:00. You will be expected to deliver a range of nursing interventions to patients in their own homes. You will need to be able to work independently, possess good time management and organizational skills and be expected to be innovative and flexible to work in other areas if required to meet service need.

You will also need to be a bit of a night owl, and enjoy driving if you are considering joining us – as we cover a fair few miles. We think there’s nothing finer than those Spring and Summer evenings driving down the country lanes between visits with the windows down, and some decent sounds on the music system!

On a more serious note, you will need effective communication and interpersonal skills as well as the ability to be adaptable, reliable and approachable. You will be expected to support your peers, the team leader and the organisation in promoting the Trusts values and behaviours. A sound knowledge of recent changes within the NHS and knowledge of the political drivers to provide care closer to home is essential.

If you are up for the challenge our team will support, nurture and guide you for as long as you need it.

So, what are you waiting for?

Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust manages Leighton Hospital in Crewe, Victoria Infirmary in Northwich and Elmhurst Intermediate Care Centre in Winsford. We are the Lead Employer for Central Cheshire Integrated Care Partnership (CCICP) which aims to transform, develop and deliver health care services in the community.

The Trust has been rated ‘Good’ by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) following the recent inspection of its services and leadership and Mid Cheshire Hospitals Foundation Trust has been named a Top40 hospital at CHKS Top Hospital Awards 2019.

Our clinical facilities are excellent, as we have invested in state of the art theatres, Critical Care, Emergency Department and our Childrens Wards (to name but a few). We have also invested in our people, ensuring we have the right number of the right people delivering care, fostering a culture of compassion, support and excellence.

Following an NHSI initiative to establish 29 Pathology networks across England the University Hospital of North Midlands is currently working closely with Mid and East Cheshire NHS Trusts to establish a Pathology network across Staffordshire and Cheshire.
