An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced Advanced Neonatal Nurse Practitioner to join our innovative and dynamic team in Lothian. We have an established regional team of 10 practitioners working across the service with plans to increase this number and further develop the ANNP role.
Neonatal services in Lothian are based at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh in ScotlandÕs beautiful and vibrant capital city and at St JohnÕs Hospital in Livingston, a few miles west of Edinburgh. There are approximately 10,000 births per year in Lothian and 1000 admissions to neonatal services.
The 39 cot Neonatal Unit at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh provides all levels of neonatal care and is the regional centre for the south east of Scotland. The Unit is also the base for the south east Scotland Neonatal Transport Team. The 10 cot Special Care Baby Unit at St JohnÕs Hospital provides both high dependency and special care.
We are a progressive, forward-thinking team, committed to providing the highest possible standard of care to neonates and their families.
We offer a supportive working environment with a strong commitment to continuing professional development for Advanced Neonatal Nurse Practitioners.

Responsibilities include labour ward resuscitation, stabilisation and ongoing management of the sick newborn as well as routine examination of the newborn. Teaching is also an integral part of this role.
For staff with appropriate experience there will be opportunity to apply to include rotation to the Scottish Neonatal Transport Service.
