We are on a continuous journey of improvement and transformation but our main priority is, and always will be, providing safe and high quality care to our patients every day; the kind of care we would want for ourselves and our loved ones. If you share our passion then apply for this opportunity and help us make our patients’ experience the best it can possibly be.

With a budget of around £270m, three hospitals and 5,500 staff, North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust provides hospital-based services to the population of Hartlepool, Stockton on Tees and parts of East Durham and Sedgefield as well as community, therapeutic and screening to a wider population across Durham and Teesside.

This service will provide care to patients within a range of settings including patients own homes and residential care homes. The post holder MUST hold the District Nursing Degree Qualification and a mentoring certificate. You will be required to work autonomously to provide a whole person approach to the care and management for patients within this setting.

The post involves liaising with a variety of health and social care providers and other agencies to ensure the provision of high quality care management to this group of patients and their carers.

 We require a first level nurse who has excellent communication skills and who is confident working across professional boundaries. You will need to be flexible, adaptable & a good team player with the ability to work independently within a community setting.
