Introducing NHS@Home

Join us, University Hospitals Bristol and Weston (UHBW), North Bristol Trust (NBT) and Sirona care & health in developing an innovative alternative to hospital admission: supporting people where they live, using remote technology and apps alongside high-quality, in-person clinical care.

We believe in delivering safe, effective and personalised healthcare at home, supported by dedicated teams of trained staff.

In Bristol, North Somerset, and South Gloucestershire (BNSSG), we are working to ensure health and care services make sense to the people using them. NHS@Home is a new model of care that brings together health and social care providers from Acute Trusts and Community partners to deliver joined up care from the comfort of people’s own homes.

Tailored support will be also available through our Home First approach which is based on a person’s needs: this may include appropriate community or voluntary support at home or transfer to a community rehabilitation or assessment unit bed.

Work with us

Our Clinical Leads, Jen and Rebecca talk about what it’s like to support people in their own homes and what it could mean for you.

What is a virtual ward?

Our Clinical Lead, Rebecca talks about how virtual wards work as part of NHS@Home, highlighting the benefits for service users receiving care at home.

NHS@Home aspires to help people to stay well and at home by facilitating self and supported monitoring.

We know that people recover faster and better in their own environments and NHS@Home endeavours to support this.

Can you help us make a difference?

With flexible working and full NHS benefits, we’ll support you to learn, grow and develop.

Apply today

For this exciting new venture, we are looking for enthusiastic people to join the team, either short term or long term posts, with hours to suit you – this will be discussed at interview stage.

We are recruiting people who can communicate and connect well with others, help problem-solve and are interested in being part of an innovative and supportive team, leading change to the way we provide healthcare.

The service operates 7 days per week between 8am and 8pm, meaning we are able to offer a variety of shift patterns. Initially, you will be office-based during your training period with implementation of hybrid working, split between home and office, following shortly after you’ve completed your training. Dependent on services needs, you must be able to travel to a base within Bristol.

We have a variety of full-time and part-time roles available, and occasional weekend working on a rota basis will be required.

How NHS@Home works

Anyone eligible for support from the service will go through a simple telephone triage process, after which relevant clinical monitoring equipment will be sent directly to their home, or to a local pharmacy for collection for them to self-monitor at home.

People then report their readings to local health and care teams twice a day, in the way that’s easiest for them. This could be by email or text message. Some people, including those with a learning disability, might prefer a phone call – which can all be arranged with the service. Our teams will monitor the readings remotely and intervene if someone’s condition worsens or they require an admission into hospital.
