An exciting opportunity has arisen for a community nurse to play a key role in providing a range of nursing skills to patients with a variety of complex and non-complex needs both proactively and responsively to prevent hospital admission.

Communities of Practice are multidisciplinary teams formed of community nursing and proactive care. Communities of Practice are the core element of a wider system responsible for co-ordinating care delivery to patients on the caseload. Care is organised around individual's identified needs through collaborative working by service providers.

The Community Practitioner is responsible for working without direct supervision in a number of community settings to follow the nursing process and deliver appropriate nursing care to patients on the caseload. The postholder will also be an information resource for patients and colleagues and work collaboratively with our health and social care partners.

The postholder will be a nurse with a wide range of clinical competencies.

If you are patient centred, committed to delivering high quality care, have excellent clinical and communication skills, a “can do” attitude and a desire to be the best then this is the job for you.

In return we can offer you:

  • Flexible working patterns
  • Supportive learning environment
  • Dedicated career pathways and great opportunities for continuing professional development
  • Commitment to and support for your wellbeing
  • NHS Pension Scheme
  • NHS discount and salary sacrifice schemes, including childcare vouchers

If you are passionate about making a difference and want to contribute to an Organisation which is continuously striving to achieve excellence then we would love to hear from you.
