Central London Community Healthcare NHS Trust works across nine London boroughs and Hertfordshire. We are rated Good by the Care Quality Commission and are ranked among top NHS employers. Community healthcare is our focus and our passion. We champion the role of community health professionals to make sure our patients get great care closer to home.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and forward thinking Diabetes Specialist Nurse (DSN) to join our established Harrow Community Diabetes Team work within the London Borough of Harrow as part of CLCH’s Integrated Community Services.

The Harrow Community Diabetes Team provides complex care to patients with diabetes within community clinics and in patient’s homes. You will also be involved in delivering educational packages to patients to enable them to effectively manage their condition.

You will also be supporting GP practices by telephone, email and through mentoring and participating in case reviews or virtual clinics held with GPs, Diabetes Consultants and other Healthcare Professionals. As well as clinical care delivery, you will have the opportunity to develop your skills in service development such as undertaking clinical audits, patient stories and patient engagement. In addition, you will be contributing to up-skilling GP practice staff and other health care professionals to provide a high standard of diabetes care.

You will have excellent communication skills and be able to motivate and engage both professional staff and patients effectively. We actively encourage innovation and are committed to professional development. As such, this role may also suit Practice Nurses or District Nurses with diabetes experience wanting to develop specialism in diabetes care.

If you have these skills, why join CLCH?
