Blackpool CCG are seeking a highly motivated Designated Nurse for Safeguarding Children and Looked After Children who is able to lead the strategic safeguarding children’s agenda.

The role will be within the Safeguarding Team which works across the Fylde Coast, reporting to the Head of Safeguarding, and working closely with Designate Nurse colleagues and the rest of the team.

Blackpool CCG and Fylde and Wyre CCG are working together to deliver the highest quality integrated healthcare for their populations. This is an exciting time for the Fylde Coast NHS. We are at the cutting edge of developing new ways of delivering health services, with ambitious plans to integrate health and care across the area through our multi-agency partnership ‘Healthier Fylde Coast’.

With its historic reputation as Britain’s favourite seaside destination, the town still attracts around 18million visitors annually. This along with local demographic factors such as increased deprivation and prevalence of complex conditions present a real challenge to the delivery of healthcare services. Despite this, the CCG remains an ambitious one at the forefront of many national transformation programmes, continuing to lead the way in improving patient experiences and outcomes as well as the sustainability of services.
