Public Health nursing within the 0-19+ team is a dynamic and exciting service to work in and becoming a Bank Public Health Immunisation Nurse with us will give you the opportunity to work within the health promotion and public health domains. As a Bank Public Health Immunisation Nurse, you will support the School Aged Immunisation Team to deliver immunisations in primary and secondary school settings throughout the Cheshire East area.
