The East Norwich Community Nursing team has an exciting opportunity for a registered nurse to join our friendly and supportive team of Nurses, Health Care Assistants, Assistant Practitioners and Nursing Associates, to provide nursing care and interventions across Norwich Place. We are a well-established team who are passionate about Community Nursing and aspire to give our patients the very best care that we can give.

The kind of nursing care we provide is vast, and includes (but is not limited to) diabetes management, wound care, catheter care, palliative care and post-operative care.
