If you’re looking for an NHS career in East Anglia, you couldn’t come to a more Outstanding place.
Welcome to Norfolk Community Health and Care NHS Trust's careers website, which has been designed to be a one stop shop for those wanting to join our Outstanding community NHS trust. On this site you can find out more about what it's like to work for us and apply for our vacancies. The site also has lots of information that is of interest to the outstanding people who already work for us, such as development opportunities at NCH&C and information about our employee Health and Wellbeing offering. For info, we shorten our rather long name to NCH&C throughout this website.
What is NCH&C?
We are a community trust that provides community-based NHS health and care to everyone, from babies to the elderly, via more than 70 different service locations across Norfolk as well as providing a specialist Early Supported Discharge service to stroke patients in Norfolk and Suffolk.
Serving a population of nearly 900,000 people, NCH&C delivers a wide range of services, including community dentistry, services for children, young people and families, therapies, community nursing, end of life care and specialist nursing, and many more. There's more about our all the services we offer on the Working at NCH&C page of this website.
We believe that people are better looked after locally and this belief drives us to work hard to bring our expert care to patients in our seven community hospitals, within GP surgeries and in their own homes.
NCH&C is incredibly proud that in 2018 it became the first standalone NHS community trust in the UK to achieve an ‘Outstanding’ rating from the Care Quality Commission (CQC). Our focus is on continually improving the quality of care we offer to local people and on improving access to that care, helping people to move seamlessly from one service to another.
To improve the quality of people’s lives, in their homes and community, by providing the best in integrated health and social care.
Community health and care is a crucially important, if little understood, part of the NHS. Working for a community NHS trust is very different to working in an acute setting but it is just as rewarding.
Our staff play a key role in delivering more personalised care, closer to home. This element of the NHS is one of the most popular with patients and is vital in supporting patients’ recovery from illness and leading efforts on preventative and wellness services.
Community health and care is the foundation of NHS services. Ninety per cent of contacts between health professionals and patients occur in the community or in patient’s homes. Working in a community role will provide you with the opportunity to develop a longer term and more personal relationship with patients and carers, and other professionals.
The best part of my role is meeting people in their own home environment. This gives me a great opportunity to help them with their diabetes and to assess all of their needs.
Diabetes Specialist Nurse
I am a Diabetes Specialist Nurse working in the community as part of the wider Norfolk & Waveney STP project. The best part of my role is meeting people in their own home environment. This gives me a great opportunity to help them with their diabetes and to assess all of their needs. Having a multi-disciplinary team all on one site has proved very beneficial whenever I have had concerns about a patient. Being part of a small team is very enjoyable as communication is more effective. I feel very fulfilled in my role.
