Occupational Health Nurse
As part of the Trust’s approach to staff health and wellbeing, we are looking to recruit an enthusiastic and motivated Nurse to work in the Occupational Health Department as an Occupational Health Clinic Nurse.
Main duties of the job
The post-holder, under the supervision of senior colleagues, will have day to day responsibility for a designated case load and will be expected, to provide employees within this group with a comprehensive and confidential OH service which will include Occupational Health surveillance, screening and immunisation service.
The ability to recognise the need to refer on to an OH Specialist, is an essential requirement of this post. Although the Occupational Health department’s base is at St. Marys Hospital in Kettering, the post holder will be expected to work within any NHFT premises across Northamptonshire, therefore the applicant will need to be able to transfer flexibly between workplaces, as necessary, to meet service requirements.
Working for our organisation
NHFT is an integrated primary care and mental health Trust, providing physical, mental health and specialty services in both hospital settings and out in the community. Because we put the person at the centre of all we do, we focus on delivering care that is as easy to access as possible. This means many of our services can be provided at home, work or in schools. We also provide health services to various prisons and detention centres in Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire.
