Ready for a new challenge? Fed up in your current role? Do you want to further your career and be part of a unique and dynamic team? Do you want to be part of developing and shaping our future service?

If the answer is yes, then we would like to hear from you.

Intermediate care, which is part of CMFT is a 35 bedded unit comprising of both nursing and residential patients. Together with the bed based patients, we also operate a community home care pathway service for patients. We are a dynamic, fast paced, ever evolving service. We have a wide experience of professionals that make up intermediate care. The team comprises of Consultants, GP’s, Advanced nurse practitioners, nurses, OT’s, physiotherapists, rehab assistants, assistant practitioners & admin staff so multi disciplinary team working is key to this post. We strongly believe in learning from each other, so if you want to develop and learn new skills then we are the team for you.

We are currently seeking to employ an enthusiastic and motivated band 6 nurse; this vacancy is available due to promotion within the service. This post is initially to commence in the bed base however, in the future this role will involve rotating onto the community home care pathway service. The service operates 7 days per week, 8am to 8pm.

You need to be a registered nurse who can meet the challenge of working within our intermediate care services. You will be responsible for delivering and prioritising patient care. Prioritisation is key, as is the need to assess, plan, evaluate and deliver all relevant aspects of nursing care to an agreed and expected high standard. You will work as a key worker/co-ordinator as part of the multi-disciplinary team and contribute to the processes that promote patient safety and quality of care in line with clinical governance frameworks and CQC provider compliance.

We are a supportive team and strongly believe in developing our staff. You will be supported in your role with a full Trust induction period provided.
