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”.


We are seeking enthusiastic and highly motivated midwives to join our friendly and progressive service where innovation and transformation is encouraged at all levels. The midwifery services in Blackpool offer excellent experience in all areas of midwifery practice and there are good opportunities for professional education and development.

We are looking for either newly qualified or due to qualify band 5 midwives, who will be rotating through our excellent two year preceptorship package in all areas of our maternity services.

We are also looking for experienced band 6 midwives for either a rotational post or a core community midwife post, working in the community hubs across Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre.

Our Intrapartum service includes a co-located birth centre. We have a 22 bed antenatal and postnatal ward and provide community service to Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre.

We have proactively implemented the Saving Babies Lives care bundle which has significantly improved our health outcomes.

We are working collaboratively with multi-agency partners to improve the health of 0-2 yr olds based in our community through Lottery funding.
