Registered Sick Children’s Nurse/Registered Nurse Learning Disability

 Children’s Clinical Neurodevelopmental and SEND Nurse Specialist

 Hull Royal Infirmary

Please note: This is a development post with progression to a Band 7 on completion of relevant Level 7 modules in autonomous practice, clinical assessment and examination and decision making.

Hours per week: 1 x full time post. Primarily Monday-Friday but may be required to work some weekends to cover the needs of the service

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced, enthusiastic and flexible Registered Children’s Nurse to join the existing team in a journey of healthcare transformation as part of the remodelling of Community Paediatric Services locally which includes the statutory responsibilities, Neurodisability/Neurdevelopmental and the Neurology service within HUTH

The successful applicant will work alongside the wider team to support the Designated Medical Officer in meeting statutory responsibilities for children and young people with SEN and Disabilities. This will include providing the point of contact for local authorities, schools and colleges seeking health advice and actively contributing to EHCP assessments.  The successful applicant will be supported to develop into a highly skilled autonomous practitioner

In addition the post holder will work under the direction of a Consultant body to monitor and implement care within the neurodevelopmental service which will include structured developmental assessments for high risk groups of children.

It will be necessary for the post holder to work flexibly across the caseload of patients and carers away from HUTH premises which will include the patient’s home, school, educational facility and the wider community. This post will work alongside the wider Multi-disciplinary team and other health care professionals within Primary and Secondary care and the voluntary sector.

The successful applicant will be enthusiastic and is expected to complete appropriate Level 7 modules in paediatric clinical assessment, examination and decision making to enable the individual to function autonomously and to develop expertise in the management of children and young people with Neurodevelopmental and SEN and Disability.

The successful applicant will have a positive and progressive attitude, have excellent communication skills, be committed to the HUTH NHS Trust Vision and Values, and be motivated to learn and share new ideas for improving the patient experience and service delivery. The applicant should also be committed to delivering a high quality, safe responsive and coordinated service for patients, with a focus on family centered care & enhancing the patient’s journey.  Flexibility and teamwork are essential for the role and in balancing the demands of a busy and varied workload.

The successful candidate will be able to manage a number of different priorities. Those who apply require a mature and thorough approach to the work and priorities.
