Nurse Consultant post in Medicine - Diabetes

As a reflection of our continuous efforts to transform our services and create new, dynamic roles, we are excited to invite applicants to apply for our new Nurse Consultant post in Diabetes.

Over the past few years diabetes services at Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital have evolved and we have been leading the way with our research work and diabetes prevention.   This has led to a new model of integrated diabetes services across primary and secondary care.  As such we have been able to create the position of Nurse Consultant in Diabetes who will take overall strategic leadership in the development of this new model.



Just think where your NNUH career could take you. Norfolk and Norwich university Hospital is the 6th largest acute hospital in the UK with new clinics and services being introduced each year, the possibilities are endless.  With strong links to the University of East Anglia and Norwich Research Park we want to give our staff every opportunity and the support to achieve their potential.


Why Norwich?

In Norwich a staggering 77% of people say they love their job.   Although less than 2 hours from London and serviced by excellent transport links , Norwich is one of few UK cities that still retain a strong local identity and with that a strong sense of community – people walk down the street and say hello to each other, baristas remember our coffee order, you get to know about interesting local projects.

This strong sense of self along with excellent shopping, eating out, affordable house prices and excellent schooling is why Norwich has been ranked by the Guardian as the best city to work in.
