Central London Community Healthcare (CLCH) is one of the largest community healthcare organisations in London and Hertfordshire, providing our services to diverse communities/boroughs in 11 London Boroughs - Barnet, Brent, Ealing, Hammersmith & Fulham, Harrow, Hounslow, Kensington and Chelsea, Merton, Richmond, Wandsworth, Westminster - and Hertfordshire.

We are rated Good by the Care Quality Commission and are ranked among top NHS employers. Community healthcare is our focus and our passion. We champion the role of community health professionals to make sure our patients get great care closer to home.

We are a dynamic and forward thinking team looking for a band 6 nurse to join our established team.

A great opportunity has arisen for an experienced and motivated registered nurse to lead one of our neighbourhood teams under the direction and leadership of the Deputy Locality Manager.

Your role would be varied and interesting carrying the responsibility for a patient caseload which involves the assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation of evidence based care to patients in their home environment. Previous community experience is essential. The successful applicant must be someone with a strong commitment to working as part of a team, be approachable, a good communicator, have the ability to work autonomously and be receptive to change.

This is an exciting time to join the community nursing service in West Herts. We are developing new community pathways which will support the delivery of more care in people’s homes, and to enable us to do this we have a range of new learning and development opportunities available through the CLCH Academy.

But don’t just take our word for it, listen to what our staff have to say about their jobs.

Mande has worked in the community for 10 years. She is currently working as acting deputy locality manager for the Dacorum team. She says:

I have found working in the community to be an extremely rewarding job. Since joining the team, I have been able to progress from a band 5, through to a band 6 caseload manager and now a band 7 lead within the Dacorum locality. No two days are the same in this job and there is plenty of opportunity to learn new skills. As an employer, CLCH really values its staff and takes the time to grow them. This is reflected in the values of our academy.

Working in patients’ homes is very rewarding. It is a privilege to be invited into patients’ homes and lives to help see them through some of their most challenging times.

This is a welcoming, friendly place to work and we are a hard working team who nurture and support each other. I would encourage anyone to apply to work with us.

  • Demonstrate ongoing professional development

We are based at Hemel One, just off the M1 at Junction 7. Do get in touch if you would like to arrange an informal visit and meet the team

Just as we care about our patients’ wellbeing, we care about yours!
