We are Transforming Adult Community Services in Croydon. Do you have the skills to be part of this exciting transformation?

In Croydon, Health and Social care providers and commissioners have formed the Croydon Alliance Board with the aim of providing a whole system transformation that will deliver the outcomes our over 65’s have specified that they want.

The Outcome- Based Commissioning programme is a radically different approach to funding and delivery of services designed to deliver outcomes local people want whilst getting best value from the Health and Social care sectors. This includes the provision of well-coordinated care and support to promote independence in the most appropriate setting.

We require a Healthcare Assistant to work within the Community Nursing Service to provide efficient and effective nursing care to patients in their own homes. The ideal candidate should have experience working within a Health Care setting, be compassionate and able to communicate effectively with patients.

We offer a comprehensive induction programme and excellent on going professional development opportunities for those wishing to pursue a career in nursing.

All candidates must have a clean driving license and use of a car for work purposes. Once recruited staff can take advantage of our child care facilities.

With its excellent shopping and entertainment facilities and fast transport links to Central London and the Coast why not come and be part of our Transformation Agenda?
