East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust
People feel cared for as individuals
Are you a skilled, enthusiastic neonatal nurse looking to work within a team of like-minded individuals who believe that babies and families are at the centre of everything that we do? Do you want to work in a Trust that has invested heavily in neonatal services aiming to achieve BAPM standards of nurse :baby ratios?
Our service consists of a 25 cot NICU at The William Harvey Hospital in Ashford, Kent and a 12 cot SCBU at The Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother Hospital in Margate, Kent. This post would give you the fantastic opportunity to work across both sites inline with your preferences calling upon management, leadership and expert clinical skills.
This is an exciting time to join the service, not only are we working towards BAPM recommendations for nurse staffi ng, we have just been awarded our “Pledge of Improvement” from BLISS in recognition of our work towards Family Friendly Accreditation and we are also working in close collaboration with maternity services to reduce the number of Avoidable Term Admissions.
We are fortunate to have the following:
Practice education team who provide bespoke induction
packages for new staff and provide on going learning
opportunities for staff
An active SIM programme in conjunction with NTS London
Resident Speech & Language Therapist & Physiotherapist
Active involvement with Neonatal research with dedicated
A Neonatal Clinical technologist
Close collaborative relationship with local University
providing placements for Child Branch & Midwifery students.
We pride our selves on our family centred care as these two
examples taken from our Neonatal Survey results show
(Picker Institute, 2014) “we could not fault the care and
passion demonstrated by staff” and “I would like to say that
NICU made a horrible experience as pleasant as it could be”
These are just some of the reasons why this is “a great place
All this in the beautiful garden of England” with its fabulous
blue fl ag beaches, excellent shopping facilities, fantastic
schools, the wonderful historic city of Canterbury, stunning
countryside and with the continent on the door step and
London just a 35 minute train ride away.
We are also happy to discuss relocation support options
We are actively encouraging equal opportunities. The Trust operates a
complete smoking ban on all sites and grounds. All posts are subject to a
DBS check from the Disclosure and Barring service in the event of the
post being offered. The Trust is committed to
safeguarding children and vulnerable adults.
