Then take a step towards LPT...

Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust (LPT) provides a range of community health, mental health and learning disability services for people of all ages. Delivered through over 100 settings from inpatient wards to out in the community, our 6,500 staff serves over 1m people living in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.


We are looking for exceptional Band 5 Staff Nurses, either experienced or newly qualified, to join our Community Hospital inpatient team at Hinckley and Bosworth Community Hospital. Caring predominantly for frail, elderly and medically unwell patients.

You will need to be a highly motivated nurse with vision, who wants to be part of a multidisciplinary team providing care within medical stepdown, rehabilitation and palliative care.

We use electronic systems including Systm One for patient records, Nervecentre and EPMA (electronic medication prescribing and administration system). We offer training and personal development within the wards and at our Learning and Development Centre to ensure you have the knowledge/skills to meet patient needs and complete your revalidation CPD requirements.

In addition we offer free parking on all our sites and a shift pattern that is predominantly long days and nights on a rotational basis. We may be able to offer flexible working patterns; we can clarify this at interview.

We strongly recommend that you visit one of our Wards during the application process so that you understand fully the types of patients on our wards, our patient management process within the MDT, how we facilitate timely discharges and communicate this to our patients and their families.

Please contact the ward sister Lisa Martin on 01455 441922 or lisa.martin@leicspart.nhs.uk




We are committed to providing the best care that we can to our patients, and so some of our roles involve a Maths and English assessment. Where this is so, details will be shared with you as part of the recruitment process.

Details of our benefits, pledge and other important information about the application process, and working for us is contained in the documents linked to our advert.

For areas where our teams work to staffing rosters, rosters are set in advance at a team level and you will be joining an established roster. Your rostered shifts will be confirmed to you when arranging your start date. We will consider requests to vary working patterns in line with our flexible working policy.

To make the most of your application, we may consider successful applicants for vacancies for the same post in different locations where this is appropriate and meets our mutual requirements.

For all substantive roles the appointment of every new member of staff (excluding medical and dental staff) to a post is subject to a 6 month probationary period, details of which are in our Probation Policy.

We aim to develop a workforce that reflects our service users. To this end we actively implement equal opportunities in employment and service delivery and seek people who share our commitment. We strongly encourage applications from all sections of the community, particularly from underrepresented groups, including members of our black and minority ethnic communities. All jobs will require permission to work in the UK.

For all jobs the cost of undertaking a DBS disclosure at the required level will be met by the individual. This will be deducted from salary following commencement.

Requests from applicants to work alternative hours to those advertised may be considered.

Applicants who are currently ‘at risk’ within the local NHS, and meeting essential criteria will be given preference for interview over any other candidates who may apply for this post.
