'The organisation is a good place to work with strong values and a clear commitment to quality of care and patient experience.'


We are looking for a highly motivated, skilled and experienced paediatric Nurse to join our well established and highly motivated paediatric diabetes team. The team is dedicated to delivering high standards of care to children and young people in order to achieve the best possible health outcomes. The post holder will need to share these values and will need to display effective communication and interpersonal skills as well as skills in negotiating and influencing for this specific group of patients. You will need to work well within a multidisciplinary team and have a passion for teaching and education. The role involves caring for children and young people in clinic, acute setting, at home, in educational settings and other care facilities. The post holder will use their knowledge, skills and experience to provide clinical assessment, treatment and management plans for a caseload of patients, seeking support where necessary from the lead Paediatric Diabetes Specialist Nurse.

You will be working within a friendly and cohesive Diabetes team which is based within a district general hospital who are achieving equal to and above the national averages for HbA1c targets for patients. We are committed to continuing your professional development and the Diabetes team hold regular meetings to give support to one another and to discuss service development.

We deliver a comprehensive school training programme and continually strive to improve the service we provide to children and young people. Flexibility and being able to respond to the demands of the service is a requirement of the post. A current driving licence is also essential to enable care to be provided within the patients home and for clinic cover in our Newark Hospital.
