Harrogate District Foundation Trust is looking for a motivated, forward thinking and inspirational individual with experience of leadership and management to lead an established and successful team of Family Nurses in Sunderland delivering the Family Nurse Partnership (FNP) programme.

The Family Nurse Partnership is a National evidence-based early intervention programme. The aim of the programme is to improve antenatal health, child health and development outcomes along with improvements to parent’s economic self-sufficiency in disadvantaged young families. The Sunderland team are part of ADAPT, which is a clinical trial testing personalisation of the programme. In addition, the ADAPT trial is developing new skills and tools to work more effectively with families to reduce the likelihood of child neglect. This research is supported by the FNP national unit and Dartington Social Research unit.

The post holder is responsible for leading and managing the work of the family nurses and Quality support Officer. This includes providing in-depth clinical and safeguarding supervision to the family nurses, maintaining the integrity of the programme replication according to the licence, overseeing recruitment and engagement of hard to reach families, building local stakeholder relationships and facilitating continual learning and service improvement. In addition, they will hold a small caseload of families to whom they deliver the programme.

This is a demanding role, combining supervisory and clinical practice, which requires a diverse set of skills and attributes as well as commitment to the ethos and principles of the Family Nurse Partnership Programme. FNP are part of the wider 0-19 service in Harrogate District Foundation Trust which is the largest community trust in England and has recently been awarded “outstanding” by the CQC.
