At East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust our vision is to be widely recognised for providing safe, personal and effective care.  We currently provide high quality services and treat over 600,000 people across East Lancashire and the surrounding area. We employ over 7,000 staff, many of whom are internationally renowned and have won awards for their work.

East Lancashire is a great place to live and work combining busy urban towns with rural areas of outstanding natural beauty. The region is close to the vibrant cities of Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds and is well located for commuters from neighbouring areas. The Bladder and Bowel Service delivers care to adults and children in the six boroughs of Ribble Valley, Burnley, Pendle, Hyndburn, Rossendale and Blackburn with Darwen. 


An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Band 7 Clinical Team Leader to join this well established nurse-led community service, working as a clinical specialist and providing leadership to the existing team of experienced nurses.  The service has dedicated administration support and works collaboratively with the wider multidisciplinary team in secondary care, with primary care colleagues, and community services, to ensure that patient care is co-ordinated and delivered collaboratively.


The team requires an enthusiastic, positive and highly motivated individual with experience in bladder and bowel care and proven leadership skills to deliver a high standard of care to the local population. 


The successful candidate will be an exemplary role model in promoting safety and quality in the team.  They will promote evidence based practice and provide specialist assessment and treatment plans for individuals and support community nurses and colleagues across the local health care economy to meet the needs of people with complex bladder and bowel conditions.


The ideal candidate will have excellent communication skills, experience in multi-agency working, and a good level of clinical knowledge whilst supervising, mentoring and offering peer support to colleagues, junior staff and students in line with professional and organisational values and behaviours.  The successful candidate will be supported in their role to develop their own professional skills and will receive routine supervision and targeted development opportunities.

It is important you are made aware of the changes which East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust has implemented with regard to charging for the cost of undertaking Disclosure and Barring Scheme (DBS) Checks (previously known as Criminal Records Bureau or CRB) and how this may impact upon you.

As this position is exempted from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and involves work that is identified as a regulated activity as defined in the Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Act (2006), any offer of employment is provisional upon a satisfactory DBS check being obtained.

In line with other NHS organisations in the North West Region, the Trust is now passing the charge for undertaking a DBS check on to candidates in the event they are successfully appointed into the post for which they have applied.  Candidates can choose whether to pay this over 1-3 months as a deduction from the monthly salary.  By applying for this vacancy you are agreeing to this undertaking in the event you are successfully appointed.
