The Neurosciences Care Group at King’s College Hospital is one of the largest and most prestigious Regional Neuroscience Units in the UK.   The Care Group has an annual income plan of £80 million with over 600 staff across a number of different disciplines.  Services in the main are based at the Denmark Hill site, alongside both CCG and NHSE commissioned neurorehabilitation units at Orpington.  With some of the best outcomes in the country the Care Group includes Neurosurgery, Stroke, Neurology, Neurophysiology, Neurorehabilitation, Diagnostic and Rehab Neuropsychology and Neurophysiology.

The Care Group is innovative and forward thinking and is constantly looking to further improve the service delivered to patients.  The teams are in the midst of large and complex transformational work following a recent GIRFT visit and other national reviews.  The role requires close working with multiple stakeholders both internal and external through the operational delivery network (ODN), hosted by King’s.

We are looking to recruit an experienced and skilled nurse leader to become our Head of Nursing for Neurosciences. This is an extremely exciting and dynamic position and you will be responsible for a team of over 300 nurses delivering inpatient and specialist nurse outpatient services in this large and complex speciality.  Whilst experience in neurosciences is welcomed, strong, compassionate clinical leadership is vital.

This is a fantastic opportunity to work collaboratively within a multi-disciplinary team and to lead change and drive service improvement.
