- Bedford Hospital NHS Trust
- Health & Social Care
- 37.5 Hours
- £30,401 to £37,267 pa
- Job description
We wish to recruit band 6 qualified nurses to join our Hospital At Home Team.
What is the Hospital at Home service?
This service has been operational for three years and has been an amazing success with 100% satisfied patient experience recorded thus far and with NHS Choices giving us the highest possible rating of five stars.
Patients that are referred to our service remain under the care of their hospital consultant. The patient is assessed by the Hospital at Home senior nurse on duty whilst still in hospital. If the team can meet the patients’ needs then they are discharged back home where the Hospital at Home nurse will continue the patient’s treatment.
The service suits patients who may need one to three hours of direct clinical care a day such as a patient needing long term antibiotics who does not need to occupy a hospital bed.
Hospital At Home
Bedford Hospital is very proud of this service and we would like to invite applicants who really want to be part of this positive, forward thinking team. This is a great opportunity for you to be at the forefront of innovation and help to shape further a service which is fundamental to the vision and direction of travel of the future delivery of NHS health care in England.
We are looking for an outstanding nurse to join our team.
If you are motivated by patient care and a new challenge then this is a chance to broaden and develop your knowledge and skills across the hospital and community.
You will need to be enthusiastic and motivated with excellent organisational, communication and team working skills.
You should demonstrate a commitment to your own professional practice, as well as delivering high quality care, with an emphasis on working in partnership with patients and clinicians.
