It’s an exciting time to live and work in Manchester as the City Council leads the agenda for the provision of devolved joint health and social care services. Within this, a unique opportunity has arisen for an experienced and motivated Advanced Nurse Practitioner to join our dedicated Urgent Care Directorate.

Central Manchester University Hospitals is a provider of a wide range of general and specialist services to children and adults. As one of the largest Trusts in England, and as a teaching hospital for one of the largest cities in the country, we have a strong track record of achieving NHS performance targets and delivering excellent clinical outcomes.

The post will include rotation through the Urgent Care Directorate, including the Ambulatory Care Unit and Acute Medical Unit, supporting you to input into all elements of the urgent care pathway.

As senior member of the MDT you will contribute to clinical governance, champion high quality standards of practice and record keeping, and implement management plans for those admitted through the Emergency Department and Urgent Care. We’ll rely on you to use your skills and knowledge to lead and monitor the implementation of evidence-based practice, support and guide colleagues, and support both the nursing and midwifery strategy, and organisational vision. You will be a strong communicator who can support and guide colleagues, and take the lead on non-medical prescribing. This is the ideal chance to become an integral part of a forward thinking team and you will be ideally placed to develop your career with the full support of the organisation.

We’re looking for a forward thinking individual with advance clinical expertise, who is educated to Masters Level, ideally a teaching qualification and the ability to demonstrate their practice portfolio. You will demonstrate the Trust Values and Behaviours framework, acting as a role model to multidisciplinary teams and provide support to staff who aspire to advanced practice roles.
