As a Paediatric Diabetes Nurse you will be involved in the clinical care: education, support and eventual transition to adult services of the child/young person and their family. You will also be involved with the education of ward staff and will be based within the hospital setting but the role will entail 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, proven experience and post registration studies including that related to diabetes care will be required.
