Our 32 cot level 2 NICU has community and outreach teams to support babies on discharge. We have two ED's for children, one on each site, and these are among the busiest in the country with over 62,000 children's attendances a year. Our children's nursing team is expanding, and is led by our Director of Nursing for Children and Young People, a Trust wide role to ensure children and young people receive high quality care wherever they access services across our organisation. When you come here you'll always be learning; developing your knowledge and ensuring your skills are kept fully up to date. You will be supported by Practice Development nurses, Advanced Neonatal Nurse Practitioners and Quality managers, together with a friendly multidisciplinary team and a corporate training and development team. We have in house leadership programmes and work with a range of universities to ensure you can progress through academic pathways in order to support your career development. We know it takes happy, motivated staff to produce patient satisfaction, so we're investing in making our hospitals great places to work. It's about living our values: Passion, Responsibility, Innovation, Drive and Empowerment - the PRIDE at the heart of all we do. You'll also be playing your part in preparing the NHS for the future. We're proud to be one of only five Trusts in the country to secure a place on the ground-breaking Virginia Mason Institute Programme to transform patient care, and we're also one of eight national Vanguard sites spearheading transformational change in urgent and emergency care. Our children's services have been rated "good" by CQC for being responsive to patients, effective, caring and a well-led service. The nursing establishment has undergone redesign of nursing establishments where we have improved our staff-patient ratio from 1:5 to 1:4 - to provide better and safer care for our patients. The children's site practitioner (CSP) team plays a major part in the development and expansion of our children's services. As senior children's nurses, they provide clinical expertise and support, together with leadership to children's clinical areas (including inpatients, outpatients, NICU and children's ED) on a shift by shift basis. Out of hours they work as part of the children's hospital at night clinical team to ensure a timely and appropriate response to children and young people's needs, in liaison with the overall hospital at night Trust team. The CSP's work with the Trust Site Team in ensuring Trust policies and protocols relating to children and young people are adhered to, ensuring high standards of clinical care, decision making, and patient flow through the organisation are maintained, identifying shortfalls in resources and intervening as necessary to find effective solutions. The CSP team deliver expert advice and practise expanded clinical skills within the children's department and to support children's ED. The post holder will assist the Trust Site Team to ensure the Trust meets government standards and targets in relation to bed management for children and will balance competing demands between process and clinical support.
