Are you motivated, with a ‘can do’ attitude and looking for a challenge with children?
An exciting developmental opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic registered nurse to join our team to help deliver our vision for Children and Young People’s Continuing Care in BDHR CCG for a registered RGN Children’s nurse
There are a growing number of children and young people with complex health needs who are eligible on the National Framework for Children and Young Peoples Continuing Care (2016) and who constitute our large caseload covering 3 London Boroughs
The post holder will be involved in all aspects of the Continuing care process from identification and assessment , through recommendation and decision making ,to commissioning and monitoring care packages and regular review of the childs needs.
Continuing care provision links with the SEND agenda and we work closely with education and social services, as well as our multidisciplinary health colleagues, in order to achieve the optimum support for the child/young person and their family. Because of this approach it is a varied role and during an average day time could be spent in any or all of the following - family home, special schools, hospital , office. The successful applicant will need to work collaboratively with partner agencies as well as independent sector colleagues to ensure quality services are delivered to the children and young people
The role will also include transitional work to support the seamless transfer of young people through to adult services.
