Are you a skilled, enthusiastic nurse looking to work in a passionate team of like-minded individuals? Then why not come and join our forward thinking local Neonatal Unit here in Cornwall?
Our Neonatal Unit has combination of 20 ITU, HDU and Special Care beds and is part of the Southwest Neonatal Network. We care for around 600 babies per year and look after babies born from 27 weeks gestation but will stabilise and provide intensive care for babies born earlier than this when required. We also have the ability to initiate cooling, deliver nitric oxide and Cerebral Function Monitoring for babies when needed in liaison with our tertiary centre prior to transfer if necessary. Our Outreach service also provides support to babies discharged from the unit with on-going medical or nursing needs.
We are looking to recruit Band 5 nurses who are qualified in specialty but will also consider applications from enthusiastic nurses who have experience of working on a Neonatal Unit or relevant transferrable skills.
We have recently relocated to our newly refurbished and redesigned unit and are really excited to welcome families into this spacious and calming area.
We have increased our facilities for parents and families, improved our outpatients facilities and this will help us in our work with the Burdett Trust and the UNICEF Baby Friendly Initiative and the BLISS Baby Charter.
The Royal Cornwall Hospital is located 15 minutes from the nearest beach, making it easy to enjoy the sun and sea while working in a fantastic department.

There is a thriving arts and theatre scene as well as an interesting variety of eating places, including celebrity-owned restaurants within Cornwall. The major route both in and out of the county is the A30 which connects with the M5 motorway at Exeter. There is an excellent rail service with daily passenger and sleeper services and an airport at Newquay with daily connections to many cities throughout the UK and abroad.
