There is an exciting opportunity for a Band 6 Clinical Nurse Specialist to join the Surrey-wide Eating Disorder Service for Children and Young People in Epsom.

You will be joining a well-established and supportive community service with a wide multi- disciplinary team and expanding nursing team. The nursing team is well established with band 5-8 nurses with a range of experience and knowledge. There will be learning and training opportunities within the team and we will support you with your development within the role. As a band 6 nurse you will have the opportunity to be supervised by senior experienced band 7 nurses and also support and develop junior nurses within the team.

We follow the 2015 NHSE community eating disorders Access and Waiting Times Guidelines and Standards; and believe in early and fast intervention for all young people. Your role will involve working with young people and their families, providing interventions and therapy alongside other professionals involved in their care. You will be given training and support to enable you to deliver Family Based Treatment (FBT) for Eating Disorders in accordance with NICE guidelines. There are also other training and development opportunities for all the nurses within our team, depending on your own skills and passions. As nurses we have an oversight and participate in all areas of the young persons journey from our Enhanced pathway; which endeavours to keep young people out of hospital; our standard therapeutic pathway offering FBT to our physical health pathway.

Experience of working directly with families, young people and enabling families to re-feed their children is desirable but you will otherwise be given training on this. You will take an active role in the mental and physical well-being of the young people under our care and will monitor all physical perimeters. You will have the responsibility of managing your own case-load and will be involved in delivering care to our Tier 4 indicated clients, with a goal of preventing admissions where possible and facilitating smooth transitions to and from inpatient care. This will at times require travelling to and from family homes, inpatient facilities and medical units; driving and car ownership is therefore essential for this post.

The service has hugely expanded over the last 2-3 years and we are now recognised as a nationally top achieving service with some of the highest outcomes. We are a really friendly and dynamic team and are CARE Excellence accredited.

The service currently operates between Monday – Friday (9am - 5pm) with further extended hours a possibility moving out of the pandemic. We currently work with a mix of face to face and online depending on the need and wish of the young person and the family. Flexible and part time hours will also be considered.

If you are interested in this post and would like further details please contact Kay Halliday-Cook on or telephone 01372 206325.
