Job Details

Are you a passionate children's nurse looking for a role where you can make a difference?

We're looking for a Senior Continence nurse to join our nurse-led service! In this diverse, specialist role you will work with patients and their families from a range of different backgrounds. We provide a judgement free service and are looking for someone who wants to come in to talk about and support bladder and bowel problems.

You will support children within the four continence areas: constipation, soiling and day / night wetting, removing the stigma and working with the child and their parents/ guardians to provide engagement and support on moving forward.
