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”.


Blackpool Teaching Hospitals are looking for highly motivated and committed Band 5 Staff Nurses to work on the Gastroenterology ward, and we are keen to welcome nurses with a passion for this specialty.
This is a busy and fast paced ward with a bed capacity of 28 for both male and female patients. We all work together, alongside a dedicated Clinical Matron and Medical team as well as having very close links to the Endoscopy Unit all with the aim to provide the highest standard of care to this client group.

We require enthusiastic individuals with a can do attitude that have the ability to work within our friendly ward teams. They must be as passionate as we are in getting things right first time every time. The nursing staff work closely with other members of the multi-disciplinary team and pride themselves on delivering a high standard of care and effective discharge planning for our patients.
The successful candidate will have a genuine desire to become part of this team and care for the patients within the gastroenterology ward. They will demonstrate excellent communication skills and act as role model to the rest of the team and the nursing students who are frequently placed on the ward

Commitment to undertake ongoing in-service training and development is essential. You should be motivated, keen to learn and ready to embrace change. Our commitment to you is to provide the environment for this to happen and ensure that you are part of our defined preceptorship programme. The ward seeks to provide a friendly environment in which all team members are supported. There is opportunity for further development within the fields of acute medicine and Gastroenterology through a variety of in-house training and university links.

If you are motivated to deliver high standards of care and have the personal qualities and characteristics as outlined in the Blackpool person then this could be the post for you.
We are seeking to recruit an enthusiastic and hard-working Band 5 nurse to join an already highly dedicated team.
