Derian House Children’s Hospice is proud to have been providing high quality care to children and young people with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions for the last 25 years. As we plan for the future developing and growing our services, we are looking for a perinatal nurse with previous experiences of working with neonates, and who is passionate about delivering outstanding care.

  • 37.5 hours per week with requirement for some shift work and weekend working.
  • Free Parking.
  • Subsidised meals.
  • Shift enhancements for weekend / night / bank holiday shifts.
  • Continuation of NHS Pension scheme or option to join Derian pension scheme.

This perinatal nurse will work as part of a multi-disciplinary team delivering care to babies within the home and hospice environment, respecting the skills, expertise and contributions of others in the provision of holistic care and support to babies and their families using Derian House services.

The vacancy provides an exciting opportunity to work alongside the Perinatal Lead, engaging with families at the earliest opportunity to provide support after devastating news. It is a professionally rewarding role providing visits to families on the units and home once a baby is discharged, emotional and practical support alongside palliative and bereavement care for babies given a life-limited expectancy at home or within the hospice environment.

Derian House is the place where you can make a real difference for children and families and a great place to enhance and develop your nursing career.
