Health screening is a key part of the service LRSN offers Lincolnshire’s rural and farming community, and we are expanding our services. As well as our permanent healthcare clinics at Louth Livestock Market and Spalding Horticultural Auction, this spring sees the launch of our mobile health screening unit, our Health Hut. We’ll need two part-time nurses to help us run this new outreach service. If you are a registered, qualified nurse, with experience in undertaking health checks, you could join our team.
Do you have:
- A current valid nursing registration with evidence of revalidation.
- Experience in undertaking physical health checks, an understanding of mental health needs, an ability to provide tailored individual advice, and identify appropriate interventions specifically related to abnormal findings if detected.
- Up to date knowledge of existing health services and appropriate signposting and referral pathways.
- Excellent communication and interpersonal skills.
- An understanding and empathy of the needs of the farming and agricultural community in Lincolnshire and the skills needed to interact with people at all levels.
- A high degree of motivation with the ability to work independently with the commitment and the ability to use initiative.
- Full driving license and own vehicle.
- Experience of working as part of a team.
- Reliable, resourceful and flexible with the ability to work additional hours as required.
- Ability to travel freely for work purposes, and a willingness to work outside of usual office hours when required.

Or health screening services operate alongside drop-in advice points at Louth Market and Spalding Horticultural Auction and through our ‘Click, Book, Chat’ digital clinics overseen by our volunteer medical director and delivered by our registered nurses. We offer confidential screening and advice across a range of medical issues to Lincolnshire’s farming and rural folk.
