Join our team
Home is where the heart is and that is where we are focusing new health and care services for people who are currently unable to leave their home without support.
Home visiting services are being established across Derby and Derbyshire with teams of different professionals providing the appropriate care.
These services ensure that people are better supported (in residential care or their own homes) and help avoid unnecessary hospital admissions.
Home visiting services are being run in the city and county by primary care networks (PCNs) as part of Team Up Derbyshire.
Team Up is creating one team across health and social care in Derby and Derbyshire who see all the people in a neighbourhood who are currently unable to leave home without support. This involves a teaming up of existing services and the creation of additional capacity – with general practice, community care, mental health care, adult social care and the voluntary and community sector all working together and with their local communities.
We now have opportunities to join our team across Derby and Derbyshire, amazing roles with flexible working in great locations, where you can provide the dedicated care our residents need.
We have a number of vacancies which you can apply for now – please scroll down the page.
Why work with us?
New opportunities and new ways of working await. We are transforming, integrating and improving services across health and social care. As a result, you will get the time you need to provide dedicated, holistic, person-centred care.
There are roles across the area to progress your career with employers keen to support your skills, training and continuous professional development. There are ways to re-train, re-skill and take on new roles. With a wide variety of employers and employment sites, there is the potential for a flexible portfolio career – taking on the hours and responsibilities you want, to balance careers, family and lifestyle.
PCNs are currently recruiting for three key roles within their home visiting services:
- Community GPs
- Advanced clinical practitioners (ACPs)
- Enhanced clinical practitioners (ECPs)
Many people who join Team Up talk about the benefits of being able to spend more time with their patient – rather than the constant pressure of general practice. Team Up team members are encouraged to take a considered, holistic view of the person needing their help, putting in the appropriate support as required. Team Up encourages team members to take a person-centred, strengths-based approach. It’s better for the people requiring their care – and it’s more rewarding for professionals.

We are supportive and love to teach and train.
We have access to clinical mentorship and support.
There are trainees already within the team and progression is encouraged.
