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 two full-time health and wellbeing support workers in Wyre Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) and one full-time in Fylde Enhanced Primary Care.

We are looking for caring, motivated individuals to join our neighbourhood care teams to support patients using coaching techniques to better manage their own health conditions and wellbeing.

EPC teams in Wyre and Fylde are large integrated teams covering either Wyre locality based at Fleetwood or Fylde locality based at Lytham.

The successful post holders will work with others in the team which includes care coordinators, community matrons, district nurses , therapists and health and wellbeing workers. The aim of EPC is to support patients within their own homes in order to make lifestyle and behaviour changes to improve and self-manage their health and wellbeing.
