Are you looking for a totally new challenge?

Are you ready to go where few nurses have ever gone before?

Tavistock & Portman NHS Foundation Trust currently host the largest adult Gender Identity service in the UK (in Europe) which cares for over 6000 patients from 18 to end of life. This is an out-patient service currently based in Hammersmith and our small multi-disciplinary team sees people who are in all stages of the care pathway.

The Specialist Nurse plays a vital role together with the Consultant Endocrinologist in monitoring and managing the physical and endocrine needs of the caseload of patients under the care of the Gender Identity Clinic. This work is pivotal in ensuring that hormone regimes are managed effectively and ensuring that physical health needs of patients are carefully managed.

The role entails close working relationships and on-going support of GPs through the implementation of the Shared Care Prescribing Protocol and well as work with other local health services and clinical teams.  In partnership with other members of the Multi-disciplinary Team, the role will be required to support holistically the patient’s safe progression through the established care pathway.

No previous gender experience is required and we are keen to hear from registered nurses from all backgrounds who are inspired by this opportunity and believe they have some transferable skills and/or experience. If appointed we will provide you with a personalised training programme and support package to enable you to succeed. You may wish to combine this role with another role and we are also happy to consider this.

The Trust has unique expertise in the growing field of gender identity and this is a great opportunity for you to lead the development of nursing in gender identity regionally nationally and internationally.
