Ipswich East Community Nurse

East Suffolk and North Essex NHS Foundation Trust
£28,407 to £34,581 per annum pro rata
Closing date
4 May 2024
An exciting opportunity has arisen within the Integrated Neighbourhood Teams covering Ipswich East .

We are looking to recruit a Community Nurse on a permanent basis for either full time or part time hours.

The service is delivered between 8am and 6pm 7 days a week.

ESNEFT are paving the way with their huge advances within Integrated Community Services (INT's). Come and join one of the Integrated Neighbourhood Teams within Ipswich and East and play your part in keeping patients safe and well within the comforts of their own homes.

Many of the 8 INT teams are co-located with our social care colleagues and wider MDT providing huge benefits to patient outcomes. An improved INT structure has allowed for huge advances in not just delivering frontline care but a concentration on making longer term health and social care plans through local data and the development of local delivery plans.

Main duties of the job

The INT's cover both beautiful rural geographical areas as well as the more urban population of the local towns providing holistic and sometimes complex nursing care within people's homes.

You will not only be working alongside other Community and District Nurses but also with a larger team of skilled Generic Support Workers, Physiotherapist, Occupational Therapists, social workers, independence wellbeing practitioners, social prescriber, Matron, care co-ordinators and team administration colleagues.

You will be committed to team work, delivering high quality patient care and have a desire for on-going professional development. This is an opportunity to work within knowledgeable experienced teams and wider MDT.

You should be flexible, motivated and able to work within a changing environment. We will provide support through in-house professional forums, Mandatory training, 1:1 and personal development meetings as well as clinical rolling skills training via the practice development facilitators. We facilitate students on training and have close working relationships with neighbouring community teams in Health and Social Care
