Clinical Liaison Nurse

Job Reference: 425-A-19-28703

Sheffield Children's NHS Foundation Trust
Clinical Chemistry
£30,401 to £37,267 per annum pro rata

The Department of Clinical Chemistry comprises a team of 60 staff who are committed to delivering an efficient, high quality diagnostic service. It is a busy, friendly department. We have an excellent reputation as a specialist laboratory and provide a comprehensive metabolic analytical service along with regional newborn screening, as well as the routine Clinical Chemistry service to the Children’s Hospital and paediatric patients from local GP practices.

This is an essential role that links the work of the laboratory to the management and care of patients. The successful postholder will act as the primary point of contact for patients and their families with the laboratory, both for newly referred families, and those with PKU who are followed up for life. There is also a significant element of community working within this role, and attendance at clinics at other trusts within the region which may take the postholder away from base for a large proportion of their working time. Duties will also include the communication of screening results and the provision of specialist education, training, advice and information to patients, families and other members of a multi-disciplinary team.

The postholder will be based in the department but must have the flexibility to travel throughout the region, sometimes at short notice. It is essential that the successful applicant holds a full UK driving licence, and has access to a car. Mileage costs can be reclaimed in full in line with Trust policies.



All communication throughout the application process will be via e-mail therefore please check your e-mail account and NHS Jobs account regularly.
