Team Leader Children's Hospital@Home - fixed term

Band 7 - £38,890-£44,503 + HCAS £3,822

Are you an acute children’s nurse who is looking to branch out into community nursing? Or a Children’s Community nurse looking for more acute focused nursing care at home?

Bromley Healthcare in collaboration with King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has been commissioned by the Bromley CCG to deliver an innovative and exciting pilot Paediatric Hospital@Home service. The team will visit acutely unwell children in the community to offer treatment preventing them from attending hospital and/or staying in longer than needed. The H@H team forms part of the Pan London H@H forum with its additional support and links that will help to provide a cohesive and high quality service to the children of Bromley. The H@H will sit alongside the Bromley Children’s Community Nursing Team for support and work closely with Princess Royal University Hospital for clinical supervision and consultant oversight for patients within the service.

The successful candidate will have excellent team working and decision making skills and put their patients first. We are looking for experienced and highly skilled children’s nurses who can work autonomously to care for acutely unwell children at home.

Will you take the leap?

King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust part of King's Health Partners Academic Health Sciences Centre (AHSC), is one of the UK’s largest and busiest teaching hospitals with a turnover of nearly £1 billion, 1.5 million patient contacts a year and more than 11,500 staff based across 5 main sites in South East London.
