In order to comply with our duty of care, we require our staff to have the COVID vaccine and we will ask for proof of vaccination during the recruitment process. Vaccination will be a condition of employment unless an exemption applies.

The Specialist Community Public Health Nurse (Health Visitor) will work as part of the locality team delivering a high quality, pro-active service for children and their families. The aim of the service is to achieve equity of health outcomes for the local population through the provision of evidence based and needs led service. The post holder will contribute to the identification and assessment of child and family health needs and the delivery of a universal core service, targeted interventions and public health interventions to children and their families within a defined locality.

CNWL is delighted to have recently won the contract to provide the 0-19 Healthy Child Programme for the London Borough of Hillingdon, offering Health Visiting and School Nursing to the children and families of this 250,000-strong population in North West London.

We are looking to recruit competent and motivated individuals with a dynamic approach to meeting the needs of Hillingdon's large and diverse population. This is an exciting opportunity for enthusiastic Band 6 Health Visitors to work in building our new, integrated 0-19 Service to support the delivery of the Healthy Child Programme to families in Hillingdon.

The aim of the service is to achieve equity of health outcomes for the local population through the provision of evidence-based and needs-led services. The post holder will contribute to the identification and assessment of child and family health needs and the delivery of a universal core service, targeted interventions and public health interventions to children and their families within a defined locality. The Health Visiting Service will work closely with local partners, particularly GPs, Children's Centres and the local community and voluntary sector.

Interview date: 25th January 2022

The Specialist Community Public Health Nurse Health Visitor will work as part of the 0-19 team delivering a high quality, proactive service for children, young people and their families. We believe that the best health care is delivered by multi-disciplinary teams working well together and in partnership with other teams and services to provide seamless care. Health Visitors work as part of a skill mixed team and you will contribute to the success of the team by being an effective role model and supervising community nursery nurses, community staff nurses, health care assistants and students to ensure they are working to the standards which people using our services deserve.

You will be working as part of a supportive team with access to a wide range of NHS benefits including discounts, pension and various learning and development opportunities.

Health Visitors contribute to the provision of safe and reliable services by:
• Using their clinical judgement and risk assessments to keep the people using our services as safe as possible
• Safeguarding people by recognising and responding when an adult or child might be at risk from abuse but also recognising their own limits and asking for help and escalate concerns when necessary
• Escalating safety concerns and by doing so acting as effective advocates for those who use our services
• Being open and transparent about their own practice
• Supervising the work of others
• Reflecting on everyday practice to identify areas where improvements in safety or quality can be made
• Working with others to create a culture of continuous improvement
• Maintaining accurate, legible, comprehensive records
• Maintaining compliance with their mandatory training requirements.

The NMC plays an important role in safeguarding the public by regulating the work of nurses and all Health Visitors are expected to register with the NMC each year and adhere to the NMC Code of Conduct.
