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.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a nurse with community experience to join the Tower Hamlets Intermediate Care In-reach team. Working primarily with ward teams at the Royal London Hospital, Whitechapel, the In-reach nurses provide a link between hospital and community, assisting ward teams with complex discharges.

The role also involves case finding patients in hospital who are appropriate for intervention from the Community Intermediate Care and assessing patients who require IV antibiotic treatment in the community.

Candidates should have a wide range of clinical skills, including IV administration, venepuncture and cannulation and knowledge of tissue viability and pressure ulcer prevention and treatment. Experience of the discharge to assess model is an advantage.
