ChildrenÕs Hospice Association Scotland (CHAS)
£42,525 - £45,563 per annum 37.5 hours per week.
With the creation of our new regional nursing roles an exciting opportunity has arisen within CHAS that will enable CHAS services to reach more babies, children and young people with palliative needs, and provide greater choice as to where and how they can be cared for. Having recently appointed to our Diana ChildrenÕs Nurse posts in the West and North of Scotland we are currently recruiting to the East role.
The post offers an exciting opportunity to be part of an innovative partnership between CHAS and the NHS as the Scottish Diana ChildrenÕs Nurse Team is being recruited to provide inspirational, strategic and professional nursing leadership in the development and delivery of multiprofessional services, integrating palliative care for babies, children, young people and their families across all sectors.
It is envisaged that the post will be peripatetic, and the postholder will be expected to work between CHAS sites, SimpsonÕs Centre for Reproductive Health at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, and at other childrens units in South East Scotland.
The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate a professional interest in neonatology, as well as generic skills in palliative care.
You will also support the implementation of Living and Dying Well: Building on Progress; A Framework for the Delivery of Palliative Care for Children and Young People in Scotland; NHS Scotland Quality Strategy; Cancer Plan for Children and Young People in Scotland 2012-15, CHAS Plan 2011 Š 2016 and other relevant policies which impact on children and young people with palliative care needs, by supporting NHS Boards in their practical implementation.
If you are a Registered Nurse with a professional interest in Neonatal Nursing and can demonstrate significant relevant clinical experience and are educated to/working towards MasterÕs Degree level or can evidence professional experience at a comparable level, we would like to hear from you.
Interviews will take place on Friday 2 May 2014
Closing Date: 04/04/2014
