Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is ideally situated just a forty five minute drive from Manchester. The Trust provides services to the 440,000 residents of Blackpool, Fylde & Wyre and North Lancashire, as well as specialist tertiary care for Cardiac and Haematology patients. We employ more than 6,500 staff, have approximately 900 beds and have a planned turnover in excess of £410m for 2017/2018.


As one of the United Kingdom’s largest coastal resort, Blackpool has plenty to offer its residents – it’s not just a good place to work; it’s a great place to live. In addition to its bustling centre and historic seafront, the town is world famous for its many attractions, including the famous Blackpool Tower. Blackpool also offers a number of scenic cycling routes round our local parks and across the surrounding countryside, as well as boasting panoramic views of the coast on its picturesque Promenade. Further afield, Blackpool also benefits from less than three-hour connections via rail to Edinburgh in the north and London in the south.


Our strategic vision for 2020 is:

As a high performing Trust, operating as part of an integrated care system, we will provide high quality, safe and effective care. This will be achieved in a financially sustainable way, through our skilled and motivated workforce”.

An exciting community opportunity has arisen to join the Fylde Enhanced Primary Care Team as a Community Matron. The successful candidates will be registered nurses or therapists with significant experience in medical care and long term condition management. They will have gained a post registration qualification, and be in possession of, or be in a position to undertake, the extended non-medical prescribing qualification. The ideal candidates will be self-motivated with the experience to manage change, strong organisational skills, with the ability to make complex clinical decisions autonomously and be able to develop robust outcome measures for the service. If you would like to improve patient experience and reduce hospital admissions, whilst supporting the team of community professions forwards with the integration agenda then this could be the job for you.
