Apply for Nurse Funding

The aim of this programme is to fund WellChild Children’s Nurses to work with families caring for children and young people with serious or complex health needs that require long term and high level care.

We are now inviting applications for the WellChild Nurse Programme 2019.

The aim of this programme is to fund WellChild Children’s Nurses to work with families caring for children and young people with serious or complex health needs that require long term and high level care.  The main focus of the post must be ensuring early discharge and the provision of high quality individualised care at home.

Funding will be for a Band 7 post for a period of three years.

Currently we are unable to accept applications from other charities (including hospices). If there is a clear need for each individual post we would accept more than one application from the same NHS Trust or an NHS Trust that already has a WellChild Nurse post in place.
