Senior Sister/Charge Nurse - Neonatal Community

Band 7

Homerton University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is a high performing and flourishing organisation serving the population of Hackney, East London, The City and beyond. 


We are very proud that the CQC has recently rated Homerton Hospital’s A&E department as 'Outstanding' medical care at the hospital as 'Outstanding', and our acute services and community services for adults, children and young people as ‘Good’.


Our integrated Trust provides comprehensive hospital and community health services for its local population and a range of specialist services for a wider group of patients. These specialist services include obstetrics, neonatology, foetal medicine, fertility, neuro-rehabilitation, bariatric surgery, and asthma and allergy services.


The local City and Hackney community served by the Trust is highly diverse with a complex mix of clinical and cultural needs.   Good working relationships, strong multi-agency working arrangements and integrated pathways already exist between hospital and community health services, primary care, local authority and mental health services.  


The trust is an active partner in bringing different services together across City and Hackney to provide integrated care closer to home, and in the development of an ‘Integrated Care System’, of which the Trust is a major partner, which aims to bring together health and care services, the wider community and voluntary sector to work closer together to provide great services for local people in City and Hackney.


Homerton has a proud tradition of supporting and developing its staff, including its well regarded and valued nursing community, and all staff are able to take advantage of a great range of benefits.


Homerton University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is proud to have been included on the HSJ and Nursing Times Best Places to Work list, and has recently achieved 'Excellence' status in the Healthy Workplace Charter, as awarded by the Greater London Authority.



The Role



The Homerton is home to one of the largest neonatal centres for medical intensive care in London. We have 46 cots, with 16 ITU and 8 HD to support the smallest and sickest babies in our local area and in the neonatal operational delivery network. We undertake complex medical care which includes total body cooling, HFVO with Nitric and also laser ROP surgery for local and network babies. We also have one of the highest proportions of low birth weight babies in the country and some of the rarest cases.



Good outcomes for all our patients is our key aim and supporting all babies who come into our unit to achieve their full potential is our priority, along with facilitation of the family within a complex ITU setting and family centred care approach.



Our neonatal service includes a 5 day a week neonatal nursing community team, which is led by the Band 7 Senior Sister. Due to retirement and return of our current senior sister we are now looking for an experienced and expert Band 7 community nurse to work alongside our in post nurse.



This role aims to allow the post holder to have a real mix of care environments, with half the role being undertaken in the community and the other half working in our neonatal unit. Part or full time applications are welcome and we are flexible to working hours.


Please read both job descriptions for the role which we feel is a really exciting opportunity and is part of our workforce plans for broadening opportunities in neonatal care and varying environments.



To undertake this role you will need to be car owner and have a current clean UK driving license.



We are looking for a dynamic, expert senior neonatal nurse who has a drive and ambition to support neonatal care across a range of environments. We are able to offer you on-going development and support, regular opportunities for learning and growth in our forward thinking and innovative team.
