The District Nursing Service and Acute Hospital of Whittington Health http://www.whittington.nhs.uk/ is seeking to recruit Staff Nurses to work in London in the acute hospital and also community nurses to work across the Boroughs of Islington and Haringey. The area is central London and enjoys excellent transport links.

Whittington Health is an innovative Integrated Care Organisation providing community and hospital services to 440,000 people living in Islington and Haringey as well as other London boroughs including Barnet, Enfield and Camden. It has embraced quality as the overarching principle for the organisation. 

We have set ourselves the mission of providing the highest quality community and general acute hospital care in England, and have embarked on an ambitious programme to transform the culture of the Trust to one of continuous improvement, delivered through participation of all staff and with service users, carers and families at the heart of our efforts to improve. 

The Community Nurse will work closely with local General Practitioners (GPs) and health and social care providers in an integrated way closer to home to meet the needs of the local population, in line with the Trust service objectives and the national ‘Vision for District Nursing’. 

The nurses working in the acute hospital can enjoy fantastic career opportunities across a wide range of specialties. Whittington Health NHS has developed as a pioneer site to become an Integrated Care Organisation. Nurses have the flexibility to work in hospital and community areas. 

The role of the Nurses will be expected to undertake clinical care and act as a key member of a multidisciplinary team across Islington & Haringey. We are committed to making the most of opportunities to work across traditional healthcare boundaries to bring real benefits to our patients and users and to support them out of hospital where possible. This post together with the wider teams working across the Integrated Care Organisation will liaise with other providers to promote a continuum of care for patients across both primary and secondary care.

The cornerstone is being a responsible and caring employer that values and rewards contribution and hard work of staff. We aim to give people the chance to shine and excel. The successful candidates will be supported to develop their skills in the role with access to high tech skills laboratories practice development; a range of training; clinical supervision and support.


If you want to be part of a dynamic, innovative and motivated team in Whittington Health NHS and help us achieve our vision to be the best, then we want you to apply.
