ELFT (East London NHS Foundation Trust) is making a positive difference to thousands of people’s lives, providing support so that they can fulfil their potential and enjoy healthy lives.

ELFT has been named one of the HSJ Top 10 best places to work in healthcare, HSJ Provider Trust of the Year and graded as Outstanding by our regulator, the Care Quality Commission (CQC) in 2016. We believe that staff who feel valued by the Trust and are truly engaged in the organisation deliver better outcomes for our patients.

We have set ourselves the mission of providing the highest quality mental health and community care in England, and have embarked on an ambitious Quality Improvement 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.

Geographic areas our services cover

ELFT provides a wide range of community and inpatient services to children, young people, adults of working age, older adults and forensic services to the City of London, Hackney, Newham, Tower Hamlets, Bedfordshire and Luton. We provide psychological therapy services to the London Borough of Richmond, as well as Children and Young People's Speech and Language Therapy in Barnet.

In addition, the Trust provides forensic services to the London Boroughs of Barking and Dagenham, Havering, Redbridge and Waltham Forest, and some specialist mental health services to North London, Hertfordshire and Essex.

The specialist Forensic Personality Disorder service serves North London and the specialist Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME adult outpatient service serves North London and the South of England.

The Trust's specialist Mother and Baby Psychiatric Unit receives referrals from London and the South East of England.


An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced registered nurse to join the Diabetes Community Team. The post holder will be working closely with GP Cluster teams in various localities of the Borough of Newham in order to improve the quality of diabetes care. The post holder will also manage a caseload of patients whilst working alongside a highly skilled team of Consultants, Specialist Nurses, and Dieticians.

The Newham Community Diabetes Team provides complex care to patients living with diabetes within community clinics, facilitation clinics and optimization clinics and in patients homes. Also they deliver diabetes education at the Diabetes Centre and in different localities across the Borough.

As well as clinical care delivery, you will have the opportunity to develop your skills in service development e.g. undertaking clinical audits.
This role may also suit ward registered nurses who are proactive as diabetes link nurses, Practice Nurses or District Nurses with diabetes experience who wish to develop a specialism in diabetes nursing care.
