******** Nursing Times Team of the Year 2016 Winners*********

Whipps cross neonatal unit is a small and busy local neonatal unit (level 2). We have 18 cots, and serve a maternity unit delivering 5,000 babies yearly.
We focus on family, and ensuring that babies leave here with parents who are emotionally and physically ready. We are highly motivated, and this translates into high breast feeding rates among discharged babies, and excellent service user satisfaction.
Our nursing team is a blend of experienced band 7s, 6s and nursery nurses, as well as less experienced band 5 nurses. We actively encourage professional development and our practice development nurse co-ordinates educational opportunities for all staff, according to their needs and special interests.
We maintain good relations within our own team, and with all other disciplines. These relations are based upon trust, respect and the shared goal of doing our best for families in our care.
We have close links with Newham and Royal London hospital neonatal units, and share teaching and learning across these three sites and the wider neonatal network. We serve an ethnically and economically diverse population and as a result, our work is very varied and interesting
Whipps cross is situated on the northeast edge of London. There are good transport links by road and large staff car parking areas on site. The nearest tube is Leytonstone (15 mins walk). Several bus routes enter the hospital grounds. The hospital borders the edge of Epping forest where there are safe routes for cycling, running and walking.
We are currently looking for motivated, progressive and dedicated nurses who work well in a team to join our department. We have vacancies at band 5 and band 6. If you would like to have a chat, then give us a call, or arrange an informal visit with us. Please contact Christine Fogarty 0208 535 6513 or email Christi
