Because we provide such a diversity of healthcare services for adults and children in Bristol and beyond – in the community and in the home – our nurses work across a number of specialist areas. These include the Diabetes and Nutrition service, bowel and bladder, falls, and our community respiratory service.
As a nurse, you can expect to not only focus and refine your skills and knowledge in one area of practice, but to also diversify your career should you want to. You’ll also enjoy a vital and rewarding role, supporting the complex healthcare needs of our community and empowering people to manage their condition through health education.
Working in the community also naturally offers opportunities to develop your problem-solving skills, to work in a multi-disciplinary team delivering holistic healthcare and to follow the care pathway from hospital to community.
Specialist Nurses here often begin their career as a Band 5 Nurse and are supported to train in a specialist skill. When expert in their specialism, our Nurses become subject matter experts, advising and educating other healthcare professionals.
Our Nurses work in:
- Diabetes and Nutrition Service
- Heart Failure
- Wound Care
- The Haven (migrant health)
