You need to be a RN (child) or RSCN, holding current NMC registration to be

We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic nurse to work directly with a
caseload of children with life limiting conditions and continuing care
needs in the community setting as part of our band 6 nursing team.

This role provides opportunity to work along side the Continuing Care Nurse
Specialist, gaining experience in setting up and supporting continuing care
packages in the community for children with varying needs, including long
term ventilation, non-invasive ventilation, naso-pharyngeal and oropharyngeal
suction and tracheostomy care. It also involves working alongside
the Diana Team lead supporting children with life limiting conditions who
require responsive and routine visits within the community to manage their
care and symptoms along their health journey. Previous community
experience is not essential but 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. Please refer to the personal specification for more detail and refer to
this within your application. This role will be supported directly by the senior
nursing team leads for Continuing Care and Diana palliative care.

We are looking for an innovative staff member who is interested in quality
improvement and new ways of working. We support agile working with the
use of laptops, smart phones and business parking permits for car drivers
within the work setting. Areas for current service development include
advance care planning and implementing hospital protocols supporting
children with continuing care packages in hospital settings.

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 people’s health services are at
the centre of local developments.

We believe in providing compassionate care to children and families, in order
to do this 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.
