Band 6 Transport nurse

SCOTSTAR - Specialist Transport and Retrieval Neonatal Transport

Band 6: £26,565 - £35,577 + relocation where appropriate

Full time, part time, permanent + continuity of NHS service

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Band 6 Transport nurse within the SCOTSTAR neonatal team based in Aberdeen.

The Neonatal Transport service forms part of the Specialist Transport and Retrieval Service for Scotland – SCOTSTAR. SCOTSTAR incorporates the Scottish Neonatal Transport Service, the Scottish Paediatric Retrieval Service, the Emergency Medical Retrieval Service (EMRS) and the Air Ambulance Service. SCOTSTAR is managed by the Scottish Ambulance Service and undertakes approximately 3000 transfers per year.

There are three neonatal transport teams that form part of SCOTSTAR. There is one based in the South East at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary, one based at the SCOTSTAR Base at Glasgow Airport and one based in Aberdeen – presently located adjacent to the neonatal unit.

There is a service lead for neonatal transport based at the SCOTSTAR Base and a clinical lead that is also based in Glasgow.

The team composition in Aberdeen comprises a neonatal consultant and a transport nurse. The team retrieves/transfers babies requiring escalation of care that cannot be delivered in the referring unit. There is also a percentage of back to base or elective transfers that can be done as nurse only transfers.

The majority of transfers are done using dedicated road ambulances and a small number are done by fixed wing and rotary wing aircraft. There are three SCOTSTAR drivers that work alongside the team.

Working as part of the neonatal transport team and under the supervision of senior staff you will provide clinical support and care to the patient during the transport journey from referring site to receiving unit.

Transport experience, although desirable, is not necessary as training will be given in all aspects of the post.

In addition to the clinical role the transport nurse will be involved in the following areas:

  • Assisting with training of rural doctors, nurses and paramedics
  • Education and training within SCOTSTAR and in conjunction with SAS
  • Audit and research
  • Equipment management
  • Service development
  • Clinical governance, safety and safe system development
  • Continuous quality improvement

The post will be based at the neonatal transport base which is adjacent to the neonatal unit in Aberdeen Maternity Hospital, Cornhill Road, Aberdeen.

Closing Date: 31/07/2016
