You can be part of a leading-edge team that makes the difference for people with complex care needs
Our clinical teams support individuals with complex care needs and help them to live fulfilled and meaningful lives, despite whatever challenges they may face.
By combining medical expertise and experience with compassion and dedication, our nurses and therapists ensure that all care is person-centred and empowers individuals to live as independently as possible.
It can be challenging work, but it is immensely rewarding.
When you join our multi-disciplinary team, you’ll work together with other health care professionals sharing best practice and thinking creatively about how care can be tailored to each individual and their personal needs.
As well as enjoying a gratifying and hugely satisfying role, you’ll be a valued member of a supportive team who help you progress in your career.
A Typical Day for a Nurse
Our services are completely person-centred and each individual we support follows their own personalised care plan. That means all health care needs are supported on a time schedule that suits the individual. Your day will be varied with many different clinical needs to attend to including medication administering, tracheostomy care, catheter support and peg tube care, to name just a few.

Throughout the day you’ll liaise with different healthcare professionals. The individuals who live at the service have complex needs and the ability to work as part of a dedicated care team is essential. You’ll receive training and support from your service manager and our Learning and Development team to ensure you have all the skills you need to provide the highest quality of care.
Our nurses can be ‘named nurses’ for individuals. This helps ensure continuity of care and it means that care needs are attended to personally. It will be your responsibility to ensure that the individual’s care plan is updated regularly if any care requirements change.
This a rewarding and varied role which will allow you to stretch yourself and help you develop professionally. When you’re not busy managing the clinical side of care, you’ll be able to spend some time with the individuals we support, building relationships and ensuring they have a positive sense of wellbeing.

People like Beth…
Nurse Bethan Prothero chose to pursue a career in the social care sector over hospital nursing. She was keen to put her clinical skills to good use but to also work one-to-one with patients seeing the positive impact of her work first-hand. As part of the clinical team at Lewis Martin Court, Bethan says she gets great satisfaction by nursing disabled adults with complex needs and building strong bonds with them and their families.
“Nursing in the care sector is a very rewarding and varied role. It’s different to hospital work – but in a good way. In Lewis Martin Court, you don’t know what’ll happen from one day to the next. But whatever happens you’re always working closely with residents and you’re continuing to build relationships with them – these relationships are not superficial, they have real meaning.”
“I feel like I’m part of a family here, and it’s lovely to see I’m making a difference to our residents’ lives.”
