"Working here is just as much about caring for families".

As a nurse in children’s services, you’ll be joining a diverse and stimulating area. Our work is widely ranging and we are well respected both locally and as a regional specialist treatment centre. We provide excellent care across medical and surgical specialities. Our ethos of child centred care and multi-professional collaboration drives our service, alongside a commitment to family focussed teamwork.

If you’re interested in general children’s nursing there’s a huge amount of variety here for you. We see emergency cases like road traffic accidents, alongside children who are acutely ill, needing elective surgery or cancer treatment. Among our regional specialties is the treatment of cleft lip and palate and we treat a range of chronic conditions including cystic fibrosis. We also have regional paediatric neurology, haematology and oncology, and gastroenterology services, which we offer for neonatal patients, up to those in transition to adult services.

We’re also a children’s intensive care centre, working with children facing life threatening illnesses or trauma, in addition to regional services for paediatric neurology, gastroenterology, and haematology and oncology.

We believe in supporting our patients, their families and our staff, so we offer a diverse range of dedicated paediatric psycho-social and clinical support services.

We value our staff highly and you’ll have a well developed practice development team to support you. This includes clinical practice facilitators, research nurses, nurse specialists and consultants. We actively encourage our staff to develop and offer numerous opportunities to extend your skills and experience – we believe it’s best for the care of our patients and you.
