We have created environments within our nursing homes where you can take the initiative and lead the care teams using your excellent clinical skills and knowledge to deliver the highest standards of nursing care.

Other duties will include carrying out clinical audits, assessing and updating individual care plans and covering the role of Clinical Lead for the home in their absence.
