Newborn Hearing Screener (Newport)
An opportunity has arisen to work within the South East Wales Region of Newborn Hearing Screening Wales, an All-Wales programme, which provides a uniform service of high quality within an All-Wales policy and to All-Wales standards and protocols.
Initially based at the Royal Gwent Hospital, Newport prior to your permanent relocation to the Grange University Hospital, Cwmbran in Spring 2021, you will work as part of a team participating in the hearing screening of newborn babies. You will undertake the full range of newborn hearing screening duties both in a hospital and community setting. Duties include communicating with the parents throughout the process, baby handling, use of screening equipment and accurately recording clinical and test data relevant to the screening process, therefore good communication skills and experience of using a computer are essential. You must be a confident and reliable individual and possess the ability to work well under pressure.
Although the base site will be at the Royal Gwent Hospital and subsequently the Grange University Hospital in Spring 2021, you will also be required to work at the other South East Wales hospital sites on a rota basis and to run clinics in the community. Therefore, the successful candidate will need the ability to regularly travel between and work at other sites within the Division as needed.
