Out of Hours Community Nurse Band 5 (Evenings)

Job Reference: 822-BCH8192A

Bristol Community Health CIC
Out of Hours Clinical Team
Withywood, Bristol
£24,214 to £30,112 per annum pro rata

Bristol Community Health is an employee owned, not-for-profit social enterprise providing over 50 healthcare services in Bristol and the surrounding areas. We are changing the way health and social care works in our communities, from walk-in clinics and in-home patient care to support in schools, health centres and prisons.

Ours is a people first model where care is delivered in the best place for the person who needs it, by people who are constantly striving to excel. We are aligned to NHS agenda for change and offer great pensions, generous leave and comprehensive training.

The Role


We are looking for nurses who will primarily work evenings with very occasional night shifts. A real positive is that the evenings are a really great variety of prevention of admission with rapid response work (IV antibiotics, clinical monitoring) and community nursing (catheter management, wound careand end of life care).

The core hours of the team are 19:00 to 07:45 over 7 days a week, evening shift 19.00-00.00 and full shift 19.00-07.45 a minimum of 15hr a week are required but anything after this is negotiable. This permanent post will be flexible to cover shifts within these hours.

You'll be responsible for the initial holistic assessment, evaluation and implementation of a wide variety of programmes of care.

Most care provided is unscheduled, with only short term cases being scheduled (such as courses of IV antibiotics). This aspect makes this role both varied and interesting and it is a fantastic opportunity to learn new skills and techniques

The team itself is a service which provides Community Nursing Care that includes palliative care and continence management. In addition to this we focus on the prevention of hospital admissions and facilitate early discharge by providing intensive packages of care to manage acutely unwell patients.

Who You Are

Appreciation for or experience in patient centred care advanced nursing skills such as the administration of intravenous antibiotics.

Highly motivated nurses who would enjoy the challenge of caring for patients with a wide variety of nursing needs.

High level of communication and team working skills and ideally have experience in Community Nursing, Acute Medicine or Surgery although this is not a pre-requisite.

What We Offer

In return we offer an environment that is flexible, family friendly and supportive that also provides a great opportunity for ongoing personal development.
