Pain Management Clinical Nurse Specialist
Band 7
Full time37.5 hours/week

Do you have a passion for delivering high quality pain management to patients? Do you want to develop highly specialised skills in pain management in a diverse and challenging environment?If so, then this opportunity to join a dynamic and established team is just for you!

The Pain Service at King’s College Hospital (King’s) is an integrated acute and chronic pain service. King's College Hospital is situated in South East London and provides comprehensive health care and emergency services for a diverse community. It is also one of London’s four regional trauma centres covering the South East of England. With over 1,400 beds and 11,000 staff across various sites, King’s is one of the largest and busiest hospital trusts in London, with a well-established national and international reputation for clinical excellence, innovation and achievement. King’s incorporates all major specialities including liver, hepatobiliary, major trauma, neurosciences, haematology, haem-oncology and Critical Care and so the complexity and acuity of the patient caseload is both challenging and diverse.

Recent experience of working in a Pain Management Service, managing patients with complex pain needs at band 6/7, is essential as is an understanding of the impact and management of chronic pain. Exceptional interpersonal, communication and organisational skills are also essential to this role to be able to work autonomously and as part of the team. You must hold a Mentorship qualification and a UK recognised degree in Nursing (or equivalent). This role is primarily based at the Denmark Hill site, but occasionally you may be required to work cross site at our Bromley hospital.

In return for your dedication and hard work, we can offer further study opportunities in the speciality of Pain Management, including attendance on study days, courses and conferences. We can also offer the right candidate support to undertake a Master’s degree in Pain Management.

King’s College Hospital is part of King’s Health Partners Academic Health Sciences Centre (AHSC), a pioneering collaboration between King’s College London, Guy’s and St Thomas’, King’s College Hospital and South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust. As an accredited AHCS King’s faces exciting challenges as it develops to bring together an unrivalled range and depth of clinical and research expertise to improve patient care.
