Full job description

Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust is an integrated community and acute trust providing a seamless service to residents of the borough

We are committed to delivering best quality care to our patients closer to home which was reflected by a rating of ‘Good’ from the Care Quality Commission

We currently have opportunities for Community Band 6 nurses to join our team, working in the London Borough of Lewisham. We cover all areas of the Lewisham Borough and the role could be based in any one of our 4 neighbourhoods.

You might already be a band 6 looking for your next role, or an experienced band 5 nurse with hospital or community experience looking to develop your skills and knowledge. Either way we can support you with a robust training package which will give you the skills you need to succeed.

The successful candidate will be experienced in caring for patients with a variety of long term conditions and, with a desire to develop their leadership skills. Applicants will have the opportunity to apply their knowledge and evidence-based practice to community care.

The aim of our service is to enable patients to stay at home longer, and leave hospitals faster, maximising their potential for independence and wellbeing.

As no two days are the same in the community, you will be working with a large degree of autonomy and accountability, with the care you are giving makes a real difference to your patients and those important to them.

Our people are our greatest asset. When we feel supported and happy at work, this positivity reaches those very people we are here for, the patients. Engaged employees perform at their best and our Equality, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI) initiatives contribute to cultivate a culture of engagement. We have four staff networks, a corporate EDI Team and a suite of programmes and events which aim to insert the 5 aspirations:

Improving representation at senior levels of staff with disabilities, from black, Asian, and ethnic minorities background, identify as LGBTQ+ and women, through improved recruitment and leadership development

Widening access (anchor institution) and employability

Improving the experience of staff with disability

Improving the EDI literacy and confidence of trust staff through training and development

Making equalities mainstream

Our community service operates from 08:00 – 20:00, with the usual shift patterns being 08:00 – 16:00 and 12:00 – 20:00. The post involves some weekend working on a rota basis.

You will have a key role in the provision of high-quality care to clients in their own home, in addition to developing leadership and management skills to support members of your team. To succeed in our aim for patients to stay at home longer, our community teams work closely with members of the wider multi-disciplinary teams to plan and deliver complex care
