Voted one of the best places to work by the Health Service Journal (HSJ), Hertfordshire Community NHS Trust (HCT) is one of a new generation of NHS community Trust's working across Hertfordshire.
We provide a range of health services for adults and children who live across Hertfordshire.
Our services are vast and range from school nursing and health visiting for children and young people, to district nurses, diabetes services, rehabilitation in community hospitals, as well as other specialist services for adults and children.
Our Trust provides a wide range of care in people's homes, children's centres, local health centres and in its community hospitals. We employ around 3,000 members of staff who are at the forefront of NHS care and support.
We are committed to promoting equality of opportunity and encourage applications from candidates from a diverse range of backgrounds. We support staff to achieve a better work-life balance through a variety of flexible working arrangements. All applicants who have a disability and meet the minimum 'essential' criteria for the post as detailed in the person specification will be interviewed.
We are committed to safeguarding children and vulnerable adults and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Our Trust Values underpin the work we do each day, and we welcome applicants who share the same values.
We are changing the way we deliver our adult community services across East and North Hertfordshire to create a single, integrated model of care. Our aim is to make healthcare more preventative rather than reactive, and to empower local teams to tailor services to the needs of their local communities.
Commissioned by East and North Hertfordshire CCG, the service is provided by Hertfordshire Community NHS Trust (HCT), Hertfordshire Partnership University Foundation Trust and Hertfordshire County Council's Adult Care Services. The partnership organisations are working collaboratively across nursing, therapy, mental health and social care to deliver better care for our population
