Working as a nurse within the paediatric services at Wexham Park

Our team consists of paediatric practice development team, preceptors and team leaders along with our senior sister, clinical practice educators and senior clinical matron.

New staff members can be assured of having an experienced and supportive team to help you settle into your new role and surroundings through attendance at the trust induction and a tailor-made orientation programme and a pediatric specific preceptorship program.

We have a unique, friendly, innovative and dynamic team who are delighted to be responsible for the children’s ward and young people. We deal with patients with general medical and surgical conditions including respiratory, oncology, haematology, orthopaedic, ENT, plastics, urology and oral surgery specialties from five days to 18 years old.

We have a newly built 5 bedded high dependency unit (HDU) and 19 inpatient beds, with a six bedded day surgery area; we also have a pediatric assessment unit (PAU) and a medical day unit (MDU).

We have close links with our children's outpatient department, paediatric A&E and our children’s community nursing teams as well as our regional children’s hospital in Oxford.

If this is something that inspires you, then we look forward to welcoming you to our team and you can start to make a difference to the children, young people and their families that we care for.

The latest CQC Report  concluded that children’s services achieved a “good” standard in all five elements of care that were assessed i.e safe, effective, responsive, caring and well led.
