East Midlands Haemoglobinopathy Network Lead Nurse

Band 8a

East Midlands Haemoglobinopathy Coordinating Centre

Full time 37.5hrs.

 This newly formed post will be responsible for planning the future strategic direction and planning of the speciality for Leicester, Nottingham and the surrounding areas. You will be expected to attend regional and national meetings in order to work with other disciplines to future proof the service. This exciting opportunity has arisen to lead and develop the Haemoglobinopathy Coordinating Centre for the region based at UHL. The team cares for individuals across the whole patient pathway from pre conception to adulthood. The post holder has responsibility for the leadership and management of the HCC team including the network nurses at Northampton and Kettering. You must have experience in either the screening service or managing paediatric or adult caseloads.

 We are looking for a forward thinking individual who is willing to lead and develop patient services working to improve the patient experience. You must have a proven track record of progressive leadership and development. In addition, be an effective role model, self-motivated with the passion and drive and adaptability to cope with continuously changing services.

 You must be compassionate and caring with good communication skills, as you will be required to teach and disseminate information in a wide variety of settings. Flexibility and being adaptable to your environment is also an advantage as there is a need to engage with hard to reach patient groups which will include working in the community. You must be self-motivated and able to work under your own initiative with the enthusiasm and passion to be part of a rapidly developing service.

You will need to be flexible and resilient in order to cope with the demands of the role. Good IT knowledge is essential as you will be required to work with the HCC manager and data manager to record outcomes and monitor against targets and give regular feedback to the rest of the team.

There are many opportunities for professional and personal development and the CMG team encourages investment in individuals for the future.
