Contract Type
Part Time
An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic, motivated nurse with experience in neurological nursing to join the Neurosciences Department within BHRUT as a CNS for Neurology and Movement Disorders.

The role will be hospital based and working autonomously and within a team. The successful candidate will work with their community colleagues for the benefit of patients to manage symptom control. You will have proven clinical leadership, clinical credibility and decision making skills.

The ideal candidate will have some experience caring for patients with Parkinsons' Disease and be looking to broaden their experience with other movement disorders and treatment options such as botulinum therapy and deep brain stimulation(DBS).

Barking, Havering and Redbridge NHS Trust (BHRUT) is one of the largest acute Trusts in the country and the biggest provider of acute healthcare services in the NHS in Northeast London. Our dedicated workforce of staff and volunteers serves our local population of around 750,000 from a wide range of social and ethnic groups.

Main duties of the job

The Clinical Nurse specialist will act as a specialist resource in nursing knowledge and expertise in relation to movement disorders. This will encompass the nursing care of people and the management of their condition.

The post holder will work closely with patients, carers, consultants, general practitioners, therapists and social services. The working environment will be in secondary care. The post holder will provide leadership to health care professionals and related agencies.

About us

Under the leadership of our Chair Jacqui Smith and Matthew Trainer, our Chief Executive, we provide care for the residents of three of the most diverse London boroughs. More than half of our 7,500 strong workforce are from black, Asian and minority ethnic groups and most live in Barking and Dagenham, Havering and Redbridge. We also provide healthcare services to people in south west Essex, and specialist neurosciences services to the whole of the county.

Our services include all the major specialties of large acute hospitals, operating from two main sites - King George Hospital in Goodmayes and Queen's Hospital in Romford. We also provide outpatient services at Brentwood Community Hospital, Barking Hospital, Loxford Polyclinic, and Harold Wood Polyclinic. We have two of the busiest emergency departments in London.

As we recover from Covid-19, we're proud to be leading the way nationally in reducing the time our patients wait to get the treatment they need. The pandemic provided the drive forour teams to innovate and change.

We know we have more work to do to improve waiting times for urgent and emergency care, and our performance against the four-hour emergency access standard remains challenged, in comparison to many other London trusts.

We are particularly proud of our regional Neurosciences Centre Radiotherapy Centre Hyper Acute Stroke Unit and dedicated breast care service at King George Hospital. We're also pleased to be part of the NEL Cancer Alliance.
