Staff Nurses

Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital

Whether you’re an experienced Nurse looking for a new challenge or about to qualify and seeking a really exciting opportunity, the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital could have just the job for you.

One of the largest children’s hospitals in Europe, we have an international reputation for excellence in healthcare and teaching. We’re also part of Central Manchester Foundation Trust - a leading integrated health, teaching, research and innovation campus in the thriving city of Manchester. Right now we’re looking for nurses at all levels who would like the opportunity to gain diverse experience in one of our pioneering teams.

A great chance to deliver care with pride, respect, empathy, consideration, compassion and dignity, you’ll be supported every step of the way by the admin and management teams that form the backbone of our non-clinical infrastructure. Openings exist in the following departments:

Paediatric Emergency Department: Children come to the PED from all around Greater Manchester and sometimes further afield for tertiary care needs. We also support the North West children’s trauma service and see over 45,000 children each year, with a growing demand.

Ward 75: A 28 bed ward providing emergency and planned care to children aged from a few days old to 18 years, our main specialties are General Medicine and Gastroenterology. We also care for young people with mental health problems such as eating disorders and self-harm.

Ward 76: Our award-winning Elective Treatment centre is split into three areas: Day Case, Medical Investigations and Short Stay. These areas cater for over 90 children a day requiring nurses to be apt at a range of conditions, treatments and management of postoperative surgery.

Ward 77: A 28 bed ward specialising in the care of children following surgery and excelling in the care of children requiring Nephrology, Urology, and Paediatric Surgery treatment. The ward also runs a 5 bed Haemodialysis Unit.

Ward 78: A 32 bed ward, we care for children who require treatment from our Neurosciences, Trauma, Orthopaedics, Spinal and Ear Nose and Throat surgery teams. We also offer specialised services such as epilepsy surgery.

Paediatric Critical Care Unit : The Paediatric Critical Care Unit at the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital supports 17 Paediatric Intensive Care beds and 12 Paediatric High Dependency beds. Due to the growing demand of the service the departments are recruiting newly qualified and experienced nurses.

Burns unit: A 12 bed unit with the ability to flex beds for both burns patients and children requiring plastic surgery for minor injuries, we’re part of a Burns service that also includes a Burns and Plastics Aftercare Clinic - and there may be opportunities to work in both areas.

Ward 85: A 28 bed unit providing care to patients under specialties that include Respiratory, Cystic Fibrosis, Cardiology, Endocrine, Metabolic and Rheumatology. Patients often have repeated inpatient stays as a result of their conditions. You’ll be fundamental to making it a positive experience throughout their childhood and teenage years.

Theatres: We have ten theatre suites and a 21 bed recovery unit which provides elective and emergency interventions to neonates, children and adolescents. Our family centred care also encourages parents to visit theatre with their children prior to admission and welcomes their presence in the anaesthetic room and the recovery room.

Nursing and Midwifery: Driven by effective leadership, we deliver the very best for patients, families and services users, the public and each other. We also communicate effectively by listening to and responding to comments and concerns and celebrate the achievement of team members.

In return for your enthusiasm and commitment, you can expect excellent development and progression opportunities. It all starts with a comprehensive induction programme and tailored development plan. We also offer a respected preceptorship programme for newly qualified nurses, while experienced nurses are encouraged to move across departments or rotate and expand their skills via a range of internal and external courses.

There really couldn’t be a better time to join us, so why not find out more?
