Paediatric Nurse - Children’s Hospice Band 5-6
An opportunity to “be the nurse you’ve always wanted to be”. Shooting Star Chase is a leading children’s hospice charity caring for babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions, and their families across West London and Surrey. We currently have a vacancy for a compassionate Paediatric Nurse based at our Hampton Hospice.
NHS Band 5 to 6 depending on experience. If you are one year post qualification or newly qualified and have had a third year placement in a hospice setting this could also be the perfect job for you. As a shooting Star Chase Nurse you will have the opportunity to spend quality time with each child to allow you to provide holistic, personalised care. Many of our children and young people have very complex health needs enabling you to develop your clinical skills – especially in the area of technology dependency e.g. Long Term Ventilation. As well as providing hands on clinical care there is time for lots of fun – swimming in our hydrotherapy pool, facilitating arts and crafts, going on outings or helping children to relax in our multi-sensory room.
You will have or be working towards a mentorship qualification and a clinical supervision course. As well as using your current skill set to ensure children receive a first class care service, our Practice Education Team will tailor a bespoke programme of support for you and develop your competencies in the latest procedures within palliative care.
Shooting Star Chase has two purpose built hospices, Shooting Star House in Hampton and Christopher’s in Guildford plus a large Hospice at Home Team
You will be expected to participate in a rota to cover 24/7 365 days a year, working a reasonable share of weekends and public holidays. We can offer flexible shifts and Bank contracts.
We offer an enhanced remuneration package with additional unsocial hours payments. You can also continue your NHS pension contributions.
