Neonatal Sister/Charge Nurse Band 7

Ashford and St Peter’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is every bit as special as the babies we care for.

We are the Lead level 3 NICU for Surrey and part of the Surrey, Sussex and Kent Network, providing expert care for 28 of the sickest and most complex babies using the most up to date ventilatory support techniques such as Vapotherm in the delivery room.

Some of these babies require specialist treatments and St Peter’s NICU has both Cooling Therapy and Nitric oxide Therapy available for the sickest babies. We have an 8 bedded Transitional Care Unit (TCU) where Mothers can remain with their babies up until discharge. We host the Surrey arm of the Neonatal Transport Service.

We are looking to recruit a Band 7 nurse who is ready to lead in an innovative environment where every team member makes a difference. As a Band 7 nurse, you will be a role model and your expertise and experience will be valued as you provide mentorship to those nurses progressing through the Bands. Deputising for the Band 8 means you will have a clear understanding of the unit’s goals and priorities, and part of your role will be to take managerial responsibilities for a designated area.

The unit has a strong research ethos meaning you will be involved in the latest research projects and we have a simulation team that run regular scenarios to keep us up to date.

Opportunities to develop your own area of particular interest will be supported and encouraged. Continued Professional Development is essential and our Clinical Practice Educator will support you to meet your needs. The unit is a friendly, vibrant, diverse and supportive multi-disciplinary team where you will be welcomed to join and make a difference in the care of neonates.

This is a post that follows a shift pattern that rotates onto night and day shifts.

St Peters Hospital is close to local attractions, the M25 and M3. Woking, a mainline station, is just 4 miles away, with access to our vibrant capital city in only 25 minutes.

Closing date 26th January 2020, interviews w/b 3rd February 2020
