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 work on the Haematology and Oncology Day Unit at Blackpool teaching hospital foundation trust.

We are looking to recruit a motivated registered nurse to join our team of enthusiastic nurses working on the Haematology and Oncology Day unit.

Ideally we are looking for candidates with haematology and Oncology experience, however training and support can be given for the right candidate.

The unit currently is open Monday to Friday 8-6. The successful candidate would be expected to be able to work a variety of shifts during the unit open times. We are looking for a full time candidate but would consider part time.

If you are interested it is strongly advised to speak to myself or one of the sisters on the unit. We would also encourage you to visit the unit and would recommend you to spend a few hours shadowing one of the nursing staff before your interview.
