We have an exciting opportunity for a  Public Health Nurse - school Nursing  to join our service at a dynamic time of change when you will be able to input your knowledge, experience and ideas to influence the development of the new integrated 0-19 Public Health System. If you are committed to improving outcomes for children, young people and their families, we would like to hear from you.

The Derby City Integrated Healthcare Partnership (DCIHP) is an innovative new partnership of Derbyshire Healthcare Foundation Trust (DHcFT), Ripplez CIC and Derby Teaching Hospitals Foundation Trust. We have been awarded a contract to transform our existing public health services to create an integrated 0-19 public health system for children, young people and their families in Derby.

For this post you will need to be proactive and enthusiastic. You will be key to assessing health needs of children and young people and families. You must be dedicated to meeting the diverse needs of children and families in Derby City and have a real commitment to using service user feedback to improve services and evidence the difference you are making. Your role will include safeguarding responsibility and you will work in partnership with colleagues from both statutory and voluntary agencies to actively promote and develop a more integrated 0-19 Public Health System. You will be based within a multidisciplinary team in Derby City.

As a Public Health Nurse you will demonstrate good leadership skills, be committed to developing your own practice and that of others. You must be receptive and responsive to change and be willing to adopt and evaluate different ways of working and leading the development of more integrated systems, processes and practice.

We welcome applications from Health visiting practitioners who are interested in working within the 5-19 age group and would be committed to completing the Differing Fields of Practice module.

In return, DHcFT offers excellent training and development opportunities. For newly qualified staff we offer a 12 month preceptorship programme with day to day support from a mentor or preceptor. You will receive regular safeguarding and management supervision. We have recently provided a 12 week compassionate minds training to a cohort of staff and offer training to use the evidence based Outcome Star.
