You need to be a RN (child) or RSCN, holding current NMC registration to be considered for this post.

Are you an experienced paediatric nurse looking for a new challenge in the community setting? If so we have the perfect job for you! Come and work for us and gain fantastic skills working across our community childrens nursing service, where we provide a range of services to support children and young people (0-19) who reside within the London Borough of Newham. These children may require skilled nursing care (0-16, CCNT/Epilepsy), palliative care (Diana team) or skilled technical support (Continuing care Team) within their home or other community setting. The focus of our service is enabling children (and their families) to have as much care as possible outside the hospital setting and you can help us to achieve this by joining our team.

As an experienced paediatric nurse you would be expected to provide autonomous skilled nursing care and support to children, young people and their families, across a variety of community settings, from home, school and clinic. This includes having knowledge and skills in accessing central venous devices, oncology, respiratory, wound care, enteral feeding and palliative care. If you do not already possess skills in tracheostomy care and long term ventilation, there will be plenty of opportunities for you to develop these skills working with us. There will also be the opportunity to work in the nurse-led wound care clinic within one of the local health centres in Newham.

You are required to have skills in clinical assessment, individual needs assessment and care planning, alongside the ability to work as part of a multidisciplinary, multi agency team. Good communication skills are a must alongside a flexible and forward thinking attitude.

Were looking for nurses with a genuine commitment to work in partnership with children, young people and their families in order to provide evidence based, holistic health care and making a positive difference to their lives.

There is strong nurse leadership in the service, provided by experienced, specialist Community Childrens Nurses, the Practice Development Facilitator and the Community Childrens Matron.

Newham is culturally the most diverse of all London boroughs, with people from a rich variety of ethnic, religious, and linguistic backgrounds. We have the third fastest growing population in England with 40% of the community being 0-24 years old and children and young peoples health services are at the centre of local developments.

Our service is dedicated to supporting community working. You will be provided with a work mobile phone and laptop and car owners will be provided with a business parking permit.

We believe to provide compassionate care to children and families we need to foster a culture of compassionate working relationships and leadership within the service. We are committed to staff support, supervision and training. You will be supported to undertake further training to enable career progression within the service and have access to peer support and psychology consultation from the psychology team within the service.
