An exciting opportunity has arisen within the Luton and Dunstable Neonatal Unit for an Operational Manager/Lead Nurse due to promotion to the Neonatal network. The Luton and Dunstable NICU is a level 3 regional service (one of 3 in the East of England) which provides care for around 900 babies per year. The NICU is a well-established friendly service and is responsible for the delivery of high standard intensive care, high dependency, special care and transitional care of infants from the local area and wider East of England.

The NICU provides medical intensive care to babies from 23 weeks gestation to sick term babies, including nitric oxide and total body cooling.
The Luton and Dunstable NICU is part of the East of England network which provides robust support to the units. The NICU plays an active role within the Neonatal Network supporting innovation and other network projects.
The post holder will provide leadership, expert clinical neonatal nursing advice and management support for the Neonatal Intensive Care service, within the Women’s and Children’s directorate. The successful applicant will work with the Neonatal Unit Clinical Director, Strategic General manager and maternity and paediatric colleagues to continually improve and develop this successful tertiary service, in alignment with the Trust strategic agenda, local, regional and national neonatal network agendas and DOH agenda for neonatal care. The Operational Lead will work collaboratively with the Strategic General Manager and Neonatal Unit Clinical Director to build on the clinical and business success of the service, extending reputation and capacity to contribute to the corporate success of the Trust.
