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 to become the Ward Manager of Ward 18. We are looking for a forward thinking, dynamic and caring individual to play a key role in the continued development and leadership of our Stroke Services.

Ward 18 is a 25 bedded Ward that has a dedicated team of nurses and doctors who care for patients with a range of medical conditions. Experience within medicine is desirable but not essential as leadership skills are the main focus for this role.

The candidate must be an excellent role model and be capable of building strong working relationships with all members of a multidisciplinary team. They must also be able to demonstrate an ability to work under pressure whilst maintaining a positive outlook and ensure high quality and effective treatment and care is given.

In return, the successful candidate will be supported by equally motivated, passionate and dedicated colleagues; including a committed clinical matron, practice development team, consultant physicians and multi-disciplinary team.
