Who we are

We are the lead centre for intensive care in the south-east region and have the largest PICU in London but we are growing. Our new Sky Ward will expand our critical care services to a total of 29 beds alongside a new cardiology ward with 18 beds.

Our PICU includes general intensive care, cardiac intensive care and an ECMO service. We are also home to the South Thames Retrieval Service (STRS) a transport service for all critically ill children south of the river Thames. STRS receives over 1,800 referrals a year, moves around 900 children between hospitals and provides training and simulation courses to partner hospitals.

We offer training courses to nurses wishing to become advanced nurse practitioners and retrieval nurse practitioners.

Opportunities at all levels

As a nurse coming to Evelina London, we will give you the space to develop in your career with the support of our education team and the Evelina Academy:

We provide a structured, supportive introduction to PICU for both newly qualified nurses and paediatric nurses with no prior PICU experience. You will take an active part in your own professional development through study days and e-learning, guided by mentors.

Adult registered nurses with paediatric or ITU experience: we will support your transition to paediatrics.

Experienced PICU nurses: we will support you to adjust to a new unit and build on your knowledge and skills.

Advanced nurse practitioners: we can support you to develop any additional skills you may need such as critical care transport.

If you’re ready to undertake an advanced nurse practitioner role we have a two year training programme.

There is a place on our team for you.

We will nurture dynamic and motivated nurses to provide outstanding nursing care to children and their families and enable you to reach for the Sky.
