Are you interested in developing your skills?
The Neighbourhood Night Service is a forward thinking, dynamic team that is continuously looking to improve the service we deliver. We won an award for Clinical Team of the Year 2015.
We are seeking to appoint Community Staff Nurses (band 5) to work as part of our award winning nursing team to deliver outstanding patient care.

About Us

The Neighbourhood Night Service operates from 21:00pm - 07:30am across the whole of Leeds providing care for patients requiring nursing intervention in their own home. The service operates centrally from Killingbeck, Leeds and via 3 local community health centres (Rutland Lodge, Armley Health Centre and Middleton health centre). One of the key aims of the service is to prevent unnecessary hospital admissions and to ensure that palliative patients remain in their own homes, where this is their preference. The Neighbourhood Night Service is part of a wider multi-disciplinary team and ensures that there is 24/7 nursing care for patients in the community.

The Role

This is an exciting and varied role that incorporates many different aspects of patient care delivered to a wide range of patients. The majority of the role will be with our palliative patients providing care in their own homes in their last weeks of life. Another element of the role is working alongside our community nursing assistants responding to crisis intervention calls from patients across the city of Leeds.
The contract is for a minimum of 20 hours up to a maximum of 40 hours (nights / hours available can be discussed prior to application or at interview as required as a variety of hours are available).
Hours of work would be 20:45pm-07:15am. This is across the seven day week, 365 days per year.
A full tailored induction programme will be supported and ongoing development encouraged.

About You

You will be a registered staff nurse and have excellent assessment, planning and evaluation skills in order to deliver the best evidence based care to patients. You must have excellent communication, organisational and IT skills.
Due to the nature of the role it is essential that applicant s are able to travel independently across the locality and have access to a suitable vehicle for business purposes. If necessary adjustments can be considered in accordance with the Equality Act 2010.
