Community Advanced Practitioner (AHP/Nursing)

Band 8a

We are Manchester Local Care Organisation - an exciting, new public sector organisation that is bringing together NHS community health services and social care services in the city. We’re driven by the aim of improving the health of local people in Manchester by working across organisational boundaries.

The first health and social care staff have been deployed to us from April 2018 and are now starting to work in new ways across the city. Our teams work as one in the neighbourhoods they serve – delivering and designing services in partnership with local people. We also provide key services that work across wider localities and city-wide. We believe that our pioneering approach will make a massive difference to the health of people in our city and we are looking for you to join our team and help us do this.


Do you want your Advanced Practitioner skillset to ‘truly’ make a difference? Then join our Crisis Response Service for a great career move!

We are looking for Band 8a Advanced Clinical Practitioners (AHP or Nursing) to bring their leadership qualities and help to shape a supportive, dynamic team who will help with the continued rollout of Crisis Response across Central Manchester. Building upon the national success of the North Manchester Crisis Response Service, Manchester Local Care Organisation (MLCO) is now backing the expansion of Crisis Response across the whole of Manchester.

As an Advanced Practitioner, this is an exciting time to be part of our developing and progressive working environment where your clinical skillset will contribute to local residents who either remain in their own homes or are stepped up in to the bed based provision and preventing unnecessary A&E attendances.

Our services operate as a clinically led multi-disciplinary team comprising of Advanced Practitioners, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, nurses, support workers, pharmacists and social care staff.

MLCO has an ambitious vision for integrated health & social care services across Manchester and as well as bringing your clinical expertise, you will be a champion of integrated community care. You will be a strong team player, an excellent communicator, adaptable, committed, and well organised and work well under pressure. You must be able to travel around various community locations delivering care.

You must be motivated, enthusiastic and have proven experience of working as an autonomous practitioner. Applicants must have, or be working towards the following essential qualifications:

  • MSc in Advanced / Clinical Practice
  • Relevant professional health degree
  • Evidence of recent CPD
  • Current registration with NMC, HPC
  • NMP V300
