Be outstanding - join an outstanding team!

Are you a Registered Nurse seeking an opportunity to work within Derby City District Nursing Services?

There has never been a more exciting time to join one of the largest specialist community NHS providers in the country - one that is also among the very best NHS employers as voted by its own staff.

Over the next few years the way the NHS works will change; care out of traditional hospital settings is quickly becoming a much larger part of what the NHS does. This change is happening right across the country and as a leading community provider our aim is to be at the forefront of this exciting future, joining-up services in local communities to better meet the individual needs of our patients.

DCHS is a top performing NHS Trust and we have Community Nurse opportunities within the Integrated Community teams in Derby City (Coleman Health Centre, Village Medical Centre and aligned GP practice bases).

We are seeking Registered Nurses with or without community nursing experience to join our teams.

You will bring transferable skills, an enquiring approach and a willingness to work in an integrated way, truly embedded in our Integrated Community Teams (ICTs).

Community experience is desirable but we are confident we can support the transition into a community role.

We seek motivated nurses with passion and commitment who hold patient experience and care at the heart of their nursing practice and share our organisational values.

Clinical skills competence is desirable, but we will enable your learning through our robust Continual Professional Development package to fill gaps in skills, plus we actively support your career progression.

The role requires day to day delivery of patient care in our Integrated Community Teams alongside District Nurses, Senior Community Nurses, admission avoidance services, therapists and social workers .... together you make the difference.

We operate a shift pattern between 8am and 6pm, covering 7 days including Bank Holidays.

We look forward to receiving an application from you.
