There is a full time band 6 Sister/Charge Nurse vacancy within the Pain Care Service at BHRU NHS Trust which incorporates two large and busy hospitals.  The in-patient pain care service (part of the anaesthetic division) is well established and operates throughout all areas at the hospital sites.   The nurse team are supported by a deputy director of nursing and a lead specialist nurse.  The nurse team provide seven day a week cover across sites with a rotational shift pattern and one in four weekends worked. 

The Trust offers a full and interesting range of speciality work.  The team expectation is to advance practice and to devolve pain management principles to healthcare staff across a wide domain.  This band 6 role requires good team working in a fast moving environment across all clinical areas.  There is a strong emphasis to deliver both clinical and educational standards within the hospital environment.   An aptitude for teaching is a must for this role as is the desire for regular clinical patient contact and a conscientious attitude.

The job does require intense concentration and can be both physically and mentally demanding however although emotional challenges may arise at any time the post is overall rewarding.  This is a good opportunity for the right person, to become part of an enthusiastic and progressive tight-knit speciality team.  With the support of the lead specialist practitioner nurse, there will be on-going opportunities to learn and develop autonomously in the move toward a higher level of practice in the field of pain management.
