Staff Nurse - Neonatal Unit

Band 5

MAY 6th 2017 9:00-16:00

Informal visits, simulations and interviews available on the day.

Are you a neonatal nurse looking for a new challenge or a registered nurse considering a change of direction?

Band 5 posts are currently available at both the Leicester Royal Infirmary and Leicester General Hospital.

UHL Neonatal Service has opportunities for motivated and enthusiastic nurses to join the neonatal team to help with the expansion of our service. Leicester Neonatal Service opened a brand new neonatal unit in September 2010. The new Level 3 unit is situated at Leicester Royal Infirmary (LRI) and has a capacity for 36 cots, 28 of which are currently operational. In addition, at Leicester General Hospital (LGH) there is a level 1 unit with 12 special care cots. The neonatal service is run as a single service across the 2 sites.

Leicester’s maternity service is one of the largest in the UK with over 10,500 deliveries annually. Leicester’s Neonatal Service is the lead centre for the Central Newborn Network (CNN), offering experience in many aspects of neonatal care – Intensive, high dependency and special care, Neonatal surgery, Outreach, Transport and Research.

We are looking to recruit band 5 nurses with an interest in neonatal nursing. You will need to be a registered nurse on part 8/15 or 1/12 of the NMC register. Some post-registration experience of caring for acutely sick children and/ or babies and a post-registration neonatal qualification would be preferable but not essential. We will provide appropriate mentorship, and a full orientation and induction programme. There is an expectation that you would be supported to undertake a recognised post-registration neonatal course if you have not already done so.

Closing Date: 12th May 2017
