Children's Community Nurse

Job Description


The UHB is a Smoke Free Health Board. Smoking is banned across all of the UHB sites. Staff are therefore not able to smoke in the hospital grounds or on any other UHB premises.

We have an exciting opportunity for Band 5 registered Children's Nurses, who pride themselves in providing care of the highest quality in a family centred approach, to join our Integrated Children's Community Nursing Service. The work is varied and offers a wide range of experiences in the delivery of care to children with acute, chronic, complex and palliative care needs within the family home or alternative community setting. The team is dynamic, forward thinking and planning towards a full Hospital @ Home service, in partnership with the Children's Hospital for Wales, in the near future. The nursing team is therefore pivotal to service development initiatives in meeting the needs of children cared for at home today and in the future.

The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate the wide range of clinical, interpersonal and professional skills required for this type of post which includes both autonomy and team working. In return we will be able to offer excellent training opportunities and the chance to work across the full range of community nursing services providing variety and job satisfaction. In addition the successful candidate would be involved in the consultation process and take an active part in development of the service.

Care is delivered across a variety of shifts including weekdays, weeknights and weekends, so flexibility in working pattern is essential.

The ability to speak Welsh is desirable for this post.
