NHS@Home Service - UHBW

B6 Nurse

Are you looking for a change of scenery?

An opportunity has arisen in the NHS@Home team, based at University Hospitals Bristol and Weston Hospitals. With growing evidence that supports the benefits of a 'home first' approach for our patients, there has never been a better time to be part of the expanding NHS@Home service.

We are looking for B6 nurses to join our small but friendly multidisciplinary team of nurses, pharmacists, physician associates, AHP and microbiology consultants. The NHS@Home service provides a 7-day service, currently 0800-1830 (no nights) but we can offer flexible working arrangements.

Main duties of the job

NHS@Home acts as an extension to our UHBW Hospitals in Bristol and Weston, enabling patients to go home to continue their hospital treatments in the comfort of their own homes. The B6 role in our team will allow you to continue to utilise and develop your acute clinical and leadership skills whilst applying them to the care of patients in their home setting.

As nurse in the NHS@Home team, you will be involved in community-based care, currently Outpatient Parenteral Antimicrobial Therapies, frailty, Heart failure and general medical and surgical virtual wards.

You will work autonomously, delivering individualised treatments and care to our patients in their own homes; enabling our patients to leave hospital sooner and prevent hospital admissions.

Some of this role is community based, but also requires an element of hospital-based time in our hospitals in Bristol and Weston involving caseload management and the identification and assessment of new patient referrals.

As an equal opportunities employer actively working towards a diverse workforce we aim to recruit and retain a workforce which represents the rich diversity of the local population at all levels and are committed to designing our services around the needs of individual patients and those around them.
