Band 6 Senior Staff Nurse, Paediatric Intensive Care (PICU), St Mary’s Hospital

Fast forward your career by joining our paediatric intensive care team. Our department is full of opportunity for nurses who are looking to develop new skills, get involved in quality improvement and collaborate with leading paediatric teams.

We are a dynamic and friendly multidisciplinary team of skilled and highly motivated staff who provide high quality care to children with a variety of conditions including medical, surgical, trauma, orthopaedics, plastics and ENT. We serve both our local population receiving patients through our A&E and wards and we are also a tertiary referral centre receiving patients from other NHS Trusts through a dedicated paediatric retrieval service. All successful applicants will immediately join the retrieval team as nurse specialist.

We pride ourselves on our close working relationship with the paediatric wards, paediatric emergency department and children’s community nursing teams. We have a strong ethos of inter-professional team working. We are looking for candidates with a PICU qualification or equivalent, and have sound clinical skills with recent evidence of developing leadership abilities. We also welcome adult intensive care nurses who wish to transition to paediatric nursing.

We are currently undergoing a multi-million pound refurbishment of our PICU facilities, almost doubling our capacity from eight to 15 beds, and you will be central to helping us shape this exciting development.

Your learning and development is of real importance to us. You will be supported by a practice development team of educators, risk/audit nurses and family liaison to ensure your continued professional development. As a senior staff nurse you will also have the opportunity to work closely or as a rotational role with our paediatric site practitioners (PSPs) who provide 24/7 extended practices and advanced assessment skills across the directorate.

We are committed to ensuring that all staff have a positive work experience and we will enable and support you to provide the best possible care for the children and families who use our services. We also strive to use the views of staff working in our service to improve our current and future service provision.
