Up to 37.5 hours per week (full time and part-time)

How would you like to provide high-quality care for our young people and future generations, supported by a settled integrated team of exceptional health professionals all working towards one goal - "to improve the health and wellbeing of the people we serve"?

Are you someone who aspires to be part of a great stable service which is highly regarded as a beacon of national success for its innovative approach?

Look no further...

Whether you’re new to child healthcare; currently working in paediatric services; would like to return to the profession after a break or retirement, we are looking for committed professionals to join our award-winning and accredited children's services at Derbyshire Healthcare.

The Trust has a number of fulfilling and challenging opportunities available in Derby for Public Health Nurses (health visiting) to join our Derby City Integrated Healthcare Partnership – an exciting, innovative and established partnership between Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, Ripplez and Derby Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust – which will enable you to contribute towards life changing differences for local children, working closely with relatives; carers and the wider care and education system.

Furthermore, you will be part of a compassionate team that values your input, knowledge, experience and ideas which, as a result, will help influence the development of the 0-19 Public Health Service.

As a Health Visiting Public Health Nurse you will hold a vital role in assessing the health needs of children, young people and families in diverse communities of Derby. You will need to be a proactive, confident and enthusiastic individual who is devoted to using service receiver feedback to improve children’s health services for the future. Your role will include safeguarding responsibilities and therefore you will work in partnership with colleagues from both statutory and voluntary agencies.

In return, Derbyshire Healthcare offers its staff a package of benefits and rewards, including excellent training and development opportunities. For newly qualified staff the Trust provides a 12-month preceptorship programme with day-to-day support from a mentor or preceptor.

As part of this role, you will also receive regular safeguarding and management supervision and shared learning from the Family Nurse Partnership and other evidence based interventions to develop a new intensive support service, which is able to reach more young and vulnerable parents.
