''A great place to be cared for; a great place to work''


An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Specialist Nurse to join the Furness Rapid Response Service.

In this exciting and developing service, the post holder will need to be self-motivated and enthusiastic in order to provide robust clinical services for patients in their own home focusing on preventing acute hospital admissions and timely discharges from hospital.

You will join a team of Occupational Therapists, Community Nurses, Assistant Practitioners and Therapy Assistants. You will have further opportunities to work with a range of services and professionals across both community and hospital services to prevent acute hospital admissions.

You will have knowledge and experience in the assessment and treatment  with patients presenting with varied complex physical conditions including skills in intravenous administration and venepuncture/cannulation. As a community nurse you will be motivated to join us in improving our patients’ experiences and outcomes.

It is anticipated the post holder will work flexibly to meet the needs of the service.

Applicant requirements

You must have appropriate UK professional registration.

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the resident labour market test. UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UKVI website. From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement. Guidance can be found here Criminal Records Checks for Overseas Applicants.

This post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service.
