The commitment of our 17,100 staff is key to our success. We are one of the largest local employers and we aim to develop and support all our staff so they are able to deliver high quality, safe and efficient care. The 2018 NHS staff survey results show that we have one of the most engaged and motivated workforces in the NHS. We know this has a positive impact on the care provided to our patients.

Evelina London Children's Hospital is at the heart of a network of children's health services across South East England, and the first children's hospital to be rated 'Outstanding' by the Care Quality Commission. We provide a comprehensive range of children's healthcare services and we continue to evolve and grow, transforming our services. So come and meet us and let us transform your career.
Snow Leopard, the newest addition to Evelina London, is a Long Term Ventilation Unit and we pride ourselves on creating a Home from Home environment. Helping to ease the move from hospital to home for long-term ventilated children and their families. The patients staying on the ward are medically stable and waiting for housing or care arrangements to be put into place to make it safe for them to be cared for at home On Snow Leopard children may require home ventilation 24/7 or just at night time. They can be ventilated via either a tracheostomy or a face mask.
We are proud to announce that Snow Leopard is EXPANDING. In our expansion we are excited to develop the Neuro rehabilitation service within Evelina by opening two dedicated beds to help children and their families prepare for going home. We are also getting 3 new bedrooms dedicated for comprehensive Sleep Studies. We are working closely with our colleagues in the Children's Sleep Medicine Department to support the children's long-term ventilation service. The centre is one of the busiest in the UK providing a complete range of sleep evaluations, from simple diagnostics to complex sleep studies.
You will receive a personalised induction programme, including training, development and education from our Clinical Education and Senior Nursing Team allowing you to care for children on Long Term Ventilation.
As a band 3 Senior Nursing Assistant you will be actively looking after patients on Long Term Ventilation who are awaiting discharge to home. This includes having a workload of patients and helping create daily care plans with families, and supporting them in achieving goals. Part of the day to day care will include undertaking documentation and evaluation of care. You will work in close collaboration with all members of the Multidisciplinary team to provide excellent care for the children and their families.
