Applications are welcomed for the Alder Hey Hospital Nursing and Nurse Associate Virtual Recruitment Event taking place in June 2020.
We aim to recruit to the following posts:
As a world leader in healthcare and research we have built something amazing, Alder Hey in the Park, a hospital for children, designed and inspired by children.
Along with a radical and ambitious vision, the Children’s Health Park is the future design of paediatric care, and there is nothing like it anywhere else in Europe.
We have already earned our place as one of the world’s leading children’s hospitals, thanks to innovation and pioneering medical work. We treat 270,000 patients and perform over 13,000 surgical procedures every year. Our catchment area has a population of over 7 million, stretching from Cumbria, through Lancashire, Merseyside, most of Cheshire, parts of Shropshire, North Wales and the Isle of Man. Children from nearly every part of the UK, and from around the world, visit Alder Hey for specialist treatment.
We are recognised as a Centre of Excellence for children with cancer, cardiac, spinal and brain disease. We have been designated by the Department of Health as a national centre for craniofacial surgery and epilepsy surgery. Alder Hey is also a designated paediatric major trauma unit.
For experienced paediatric nurses and experienced nurse associates we offer a bespoke local induction and preceptorship package to meet your needs, created and overseen by the areas practice educator.
For newly qualified nurses we offer a standard organisation induction, with an agreed supernumerary period, to allow us to ensure you can be provided with all required information and training required. We have practice educators who are ward based, and will support you during your transition into the qualified nurse role, which will be supported by undertaking the Trust preceptorship programme. We offer a rotational programme, which enables you to spend time across our medical and surgical divisions.
