Join us and become part of the most engaged workforce of any NHS trust in England, according to the latest national NHS Staff Survey results – for the second year running.

You will be joining a dynamic and forward-looking organisation in the heart of the capital where you can develop your career and broaden your horizons.

We think you will enjoy working for us but you don’t have to take our word for it – 79% of staff who took part in the latest national NHS Staff Survey would recommend Guy’s and St Thomas’ as a place to work.

Are you looking for an exciting new opportunity to develop your career?
Why not join our new team which brings together the best of acute hospital and community care – enabling people to complete their hospital care at home or in many cases, avoid an hospital admission.

We provide safe, high quality acute care, diagnostics and interventions in patients’ usual place of residence. The @home service is at the forefront of healthcare delivery in providing acute care in the community. Working as a key member of the multi-disciplinary team and with Community and Primary Care services across Lambeth and Southwark, St Thomas’ and King’s College Hospitals, you will help patients recover more quickly and comfortably, using advanced clinical skills and supervising and mentoring junior colleagues.

Patients will range from those requiring a single episode of care, e.g. post-operative, to people living with complex or long-term conditions, including the frail elderly, who benefit from short-term acute interventions that our service provides. We work with GPs, Hospital teams, Community Matrons, District Nurses, Therapy teams, and Social and Emergency care services. The service operates between 08.00hrs to 23.00hrs 7 days per week across shifts.

You will be enthusiastic, able to work autonomously using advanced nursing practice and clinical reasoning, and have skills and experience to bring to the team. We will offer you a wide range of opportunities to develop your clinical practice, holistic care skills and career. Together we will put patients first, build a team that values and supports each other and develop a service fit for the future.

Our Job Description and Person Specification outlines the role, together with the knowledge, skills, experience and qualifications required. Please contact us for a general discussion about this fantastic opportunity if this would be helpful to you.

Please note: Those who applied for the post within the last 6 months do not need to apply again.
