Band 5 Staff Nurse Children's Continuing Healthcare Team

Interview date: Within 2 weeks of closing date

Team Hub: Jarvis Centre, Guildford

The Children Continuing Healthcare Team is a service under Children and Family Health Surrey; we provide high quality care for children aged between 0 and 19 years old with complex health needs, predominantly within their homes and also within nurseries, schools or out in the community. The children have a variety of health and communication needs, some of the children are nonverbal, using different communication aides and the majority of the children have tracheostomies and some with ventilation. You will be required to provide personal care, tracheostomy and ventilation care and other forms of support for the child.

We are a service that covers 24 hours a day care, seven days a week so our team works a rota pattern. As most of the children have care plans that provide support at night (22:00-07:00), the shifts are predominantly at night, although we do have some day shifts. The care we provide is considered life changing for the families and allows respite for parents/family.
