Exciting opportunities out of hours across the beautiful Devon landscape.

Looking for a new challenge?

Want to develop your leadership skills, with the support of a Band 7, to support an enthusiastic and developing team?

If you are passionate about providing high quality nursing care to people in their own homes and want to support individuals to remain in their preferred place of care, preventing unplanned admissions, then the Out of Hours Community Health and Social Care Team is for you.

The team provides a service from 14.30 – 08.00hrs worked over various shift patterns, supporting our population across Exeter, East and Mid Devon, but based in central Exeter.

We are currently looking to further develop our out of hours service utilising skills to deliver responsive, timely, quality care to meet the needs of our population. At this exciting time, we are seeking to recruit enthusiastic, experienced nurses to the Band 6 role of Community Nurse Specialist. You will be able to demonstrate your enthusiasm and commitment to community nursing, highly developed clinical skills to share as the clinical expert and be able to evidence your leadership skills/experience to support junior team members. The post-holder will be supported by the Team Manager and a Senior Nurse.

Our Out of Hours Health and Social Care Community Team, consists of nurses, healthcare assistants and carers (Roving Responders). The team are developing closer links with the day community nurse teams to provide an element of planned care and to support the needs of our populations around the clock, also undertaking responsive holistic nursing and social care as required. The caseload covers a broad range including end of life care, admission avoidance and support for timely hospital discharge. The team also provide clinical support for our Urgent Response support workers between the hours of 5pm – 11pm.

This post provides a huge opportunity to harness the enthusiasm of the current team to develop the service further, enhancing the nursing skills of junior staff to broaden the provision available to patients.

Applicants will be required to commit to all shift patterns within the team and be comfortable with driving, sometimes long distances across the geography.

Our vision is to provide safe, high quality seamless services delivered with courtesy and respect. To achieve our vision we expect all our staff to uphold our Trust values. Our Trust values are: Honesty, Openness & Integrity Fairness, Inclusion & Collaboration Respect & Dignity
