I worked to improve the health and well-being of children, and families in the communities by supporting the implementation and delivery of the new Department of Health four levels of service to families with children under five. I ensure that families are aware of the range of services, including Sure Start Children’s Centre services and the services families and communities wish to provide for themselves. I ensure first assessments (NBVs) are carried out in line with Trust guidelines, interpret information and use to plan care. I develop and review care plans including clinical and child protection risk assessments using the assessment framework for children and families. Furthermore, I support mothers and other family members with mental health conditions (e.g. postnatal depression) in collaboration with other health and social care professionals; and provide a rapid response when specific expert help is needed for example with postnatal depression, a sleepless baby, weaning or answering any concerns about parenting. I prescribe and review medication for individuals, within sphere of own practice and in accordance with the nurse prescribing formulary and Trust policy. Subsequently, I Plan my own work to make most effective use of time within the team accountability framework, and develop and sustain effective relationships with colleagues in general practice.
My colleagues and manager are supportive.
