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”.

Unscheduled Care - Where Every Day is Different


Unscheduled Care is an exciting, diverse and large acute division which encompass many specialities. Although we are a large division within the Trust we still retain a close knit family feel but we will ensure that your skills are utilised in the best possible way within our division. Our Senior Nursing Team are committed to ensuring our patients receive the best care, and that our staff feel supported in their roles, which reflects on the care we provide to our patients and their families and also the health and wellbeing of our staff.

A vacancy has arisen for a permanent Band 5 Staff Nurse in Ward 24 our General Medical Ward.  We are looking for someone who has the ability to provide high quality care to our patients and has good organisational and communication skills. The ward admits and discharges a variety of patients with different medical conditions and it is expected that you will have the skills and confidence to operate autonomously and have the ability to work alongside a diverse Multidisciplinary Team to ensure effective and safe discharges of patients to home / community / care settings. The Ward is an extremely busy fast paced environment with a strong focus on Medically Optimising patients and safe discharge planning.

Within our wards we focus on quality standards and education and in turn we will help you identify your areas of development within a personalised development programme. The successful candidate will be supported by the Ward Manager and the wider Unscheduled Care team.
