Our children’s nurses are ambassadors for delivering patient focused care – you will offer quality nursing that is tailored to the child’s and family’ needs, ensuring all professional standards are met and relevant support programmes are delivered. You will be treating children with a wide range of conditions including rare and orphan diseases, such as Lysosomal Storage Disorders and educating other children and their families on administering their medication to treat conditions like Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis, Crohn’s disease, Psoriasis and Growth Hormone Deficiency. Your electronic feedback on care delivered and escalation when concerns are recognised, enable collaborative working with the NHS, ensuring the children’s full needs are met. Educating through play or observing a child in school receiving intravenous care is all part of a normal day.
