Job Description

Transform your outlook, transform local healthcare, transform your career…

Burton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is on a journey. Out of special measures and with some bold and exciting plans for the future, we are an ambitious trust that is going places, and we want you to join us.

With three hospitals, including our flagship Queen’s Hospital, across the central regions of East and South Staffordshire and Southern Derbyshire, we are at the forefront of discussions about transforming local healthcare.

Will you come with us on our journey to Be The Best? Here’s more about the role and what we’re looking for.


Paediatric Diabetes Specialist Nurse

Band 7

£31,383 - £41,373 per annum

375 hours per week


We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic and motivated Paediatric Diabetes Specialist Nurse to join our Paediatric Diabetes Team. We currently care for approximately 130 children and young people with diabetes at Queens Hospital, Burton.

You will be expected to be an experienced Paediatric Nurse who has good knowledge and understanding about the management of diabetes and who shows commitment to working with and supporting children and young people with diabetes and their families. Community experience would be an advantage but not essential. You will work closely within the well-established, innovative, multi-disciplinary team providing holistic care to all our clients.

As a Diabetes Specialist Nurse you will be fully involved in the clinical care and education, support and eventual transition to adult services of the child/young person and their family. You will work within the hospital setting but the role will entail a significant time in the home and the community, enhancing established links with schools and other community groups and forging new ones.

You will also need the skills to manage some administrative tasks of service delivery and service improvement.

Evidence of continued professional development, experience and post registration study i.e. Management of Childhood Diabetes in the Home and Community will be required for the senior post along with Insulin Pump experience.

This is also a great career opportunity as a result of our commitment to your ongoing professional development.

If you would like to know more, please contact Jane Humphries Lead Paediatric Diabetes Specialist Nurse via bleep from switchboard.
