You will work as part of a multi-disciplinary team including primary care and tertiary colleagues to ensure children and families are supported to manage their condition e.g. cystic fibrosis, asthma. The role will involve providing support to children in their homes, in clinic, the paediatric assessment unit and the ward. We are looking for someone who is passionate about care planning and helping children to manage their condition successfully.
