Are you looking for a new challenge? Are you passionate about infant feeding and would like to further develop your skills?   Would you like to be part of a forward thinking, innovative Health Visiting Team that has been full accredited by UNICEF with Baby Friendly in the Community and now working towards the Achieving Sustainability Gold Award. If so, we would like to hear from you.

You should be a Registered Nurse/Midwife and have a post registration qualification in Public Health and experience of working with a Health Visiting Service. We are looking for an experienced practitioner who has knowledge and experience of the UNICEF Baby Friendly Standards and is an expert in supporting mothers with infant feeding – a lactation qualification is desirable but not essential. You should be able to deliver teaching and workshops to a range of professionals and service users and a teaching qualification would be desirable.

This is an exciting time for Sutton Health Visiting as it moves into local authority and we are fortunate to have the Director of Public Health as our Breastfeeding Guardian to help drive forward the initiative.

This Team will transition to be part of Sutton Health and Care Provider Alliance in April 2019. Sutton Health and Care (SHC) is an alliance between local partner health and social care organisations, which will be Hosted by Epsom and St Helier University NHS Trust from April 2019.  The SHC Alliance was formed so that local health and care providers can work together to deliver high quality health and social care for Sutton residents and ensure that care will be coordinated around the needs of the person and will encompass all elements of care whilst supporting people in their homes to be independent and health for as long as possible. From April 2019 this service, will be transferred under a TUPE process to The London Borough of Sutton.
