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 opportunity has arisen for a full time band 5 post working on a 20 bedded acute general surgical ward. Whilst specialising in colorectal surgery, ENT & Ophthalmology, we also care for a wide variety of general surgical patients.


We are looking for an enthusiastic, motivated, dedicated, forward thinking nurse who will be committed to the role with a determination to ensure patients on the ward receive the highest standards of care. Our patients have varying degrees of dependency which will mean organising and prioritising care accordingly whilst being able to recognise and manage deteriorating patients.


The post is a rotational post consisting of days/nights & weekends and you must be punctual and flexible. You will need to have excellent communication skills and be able to liaise with patients, relatives and other members of the multidisciplinary team as well as you colleagues on the ward.


We will offer a full induction to the ward and you will receive full support from the ward manager, ward staff and the practice development sister to help address any current or future development needs.
