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”.

Blackpool Teaching Hospitals encourages flexible working in all our roles to support staff in maintaining healthy home-life balance.  Working patterns such as; part time working, self-rostering, compressed hours, annualised hours, term time, reverse term time and flexitime working can be explored.  We encourage applicants to state clearly on their application forms this request and discuss these options at interview


Clifton Hospital

We are expanding our Advanced Clinical Practitioner (ACPs) workforce at Clifton Hospital to support the development of our Nurse/Therapy Led model of care. Clifton Hospital is a great place to work with dedicate staff and a real sense of community, so come join us.

The ACP role will from December 2019 cover the hours between 8am and 8pm seven days a week and therefore we can offer full and part time working over a variety of shift patterns. We are looking to appoint staff that can cover a mixture of days/hours to cover this period across the week.

We are looking for experienced ACP's (qualified to Masters level including NMP) to join us. Clifton Hospital provides rehabilitation to patients embracing a MDT approach. We continually work to improving the quality of care we provide to patients and ACPs are key to this.

The majority of our patients are currently transferred to Clifton Hospital following an acute episode of care at Blackpool Victoria Hospital and are deemed as medical fit for discharge to Clifton Hospital for a period of rehabilitation. We also accept patients that are admitted to Clifton Hospital direct from the community (step-up) from our community teams and in time direct from GP’s/primary care.  

You will be supported in your role by an onsite Nurse Consultant and other ACP colleagues as well as the onsite Clinical Matron. Regular clinical supervision and educational sessions are provided on site.
