Our 200+ registered and non-registered nursing staff work together in communities across Bristol and beyond, bringing patient-centric, holistic and high-quality care to life every day.
Collaboration and continuous learning are at the heart of everything we do. So whatever your role with us, you’ll be fully supported and given opportunities to develop and grow.
Whether you’ve worked in the community before or it’s new to you, you’ll find we offer every opportunity to shape high quality care, to take the time to understand your patients’ needs, to challenge barriers and to plan high quality care. The opportunities are endless if you’re compassionate, collaborative and resilient, are proactive about problem-solving, want to be part of one team and to develop your skills and knowledge in a forward-thinking environment.
Integrated Community Nursing Teams
Our dedicated community nursing teams are attached to health centres and GP surgeries and so are supported by multi-disciplinary teams in providing care and support to housebound patients in their homes. Most work shifts between 8am-8pm during the week, with specialist teams covering evenings, nights and weekends.
Specialist Nursing Teams
Our expert clinicians provide additional care and support to patients with long-terms conditions including diabetes, COPD, and heart failure. They work together with other services to ensure patients with long-term conditions have access to expert treatment, helping patients to manage their health through education and health promotion.
Our nurses work together with allied health professionals such as physiotherapists, occupational therapists to reduce hospital admissions and help patients who’ve been admitted be discharged sooner. Teams here include the Intermediate Care Service, which works in patients’ homes, and REACT (Rapid Assessment Emergency Care Team) In-Reach, which is based in the emergency departments at the BRI and Southmead. These roles are fast paced and hugely diverse.
