Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT) is one of the largest acute Trusts in the UK, employing over 20,000 staff.

We are responsible for running a family of nine hospitals across six separate sites, providing a wide range of services from comprehensive local general hospital care through to highly specialised regional and national services.

We are the main provider of hospital care to approximately 750,000 people in Manchester and Trafford and the single biggest provider of specialised services in the North West of England. We are also the lead provider for a significant number of specialised services including Breast Care, Vascular, Cardiac, Respiratory, Urology Cancer, Paediatrics, Women’s Services, Ophthalmology and Genomic Medicine.

Our vision is to improve the health and quality of life of our diverse population by building an organisation that:

  • Excels in quality, safety, patient experience, research, innovation and teaching
  • Attracts, develops and retains great people
  • Is recognised internationally as a leading healthcare provider

We are now looking to recruit three enthusiastic, motivated, and experienced Nurses to be part of an innovative and exciting service in Manchester. You will have the opportunity to bring your ideas to continually develop and improve the team(s) approach and shape the service offer for people in the City. The High Impact Primary Care teams are multi-disciplinary teams based in three neighbourhoods across North, Central and South Manchester who proactively support people who are frail and /or living with complex multiple long term conditions and  who may benefit from more intense and proactive support, to identify their clinical and non-clinical support needs. Each HIPC team is clinically led by a GP, has an operational Team Manager and Service-Coordinator and includes a Senior Nurse, Social Worker, Support Worker and Pharmacist Practitioner. The team share the care of the patient case load and have regular multi-disciplinary meetings and have the opportunity to develop good practice and effective ways of working to deliver the service in the three neighbourhoods. The team build links and work in partnership with local integrated neighbourhood teams, local primary care services and local community groups to case find those individuals who may not be visible through primary care but may benefit from a more proactive approach.


Each person in the HIPC service has an assigned key worker within the team, regular multi-disciplinary care reviews and implementation of their care plans until they are better able to manage their illness and self-care with mainstream support. We will deliver local clinical and social care services, focussing on what matters to the person and their carer.  This will be supported by rapid access to specialist advice, diagnostics and opinion through established clinical networks the clinicians in the team have already begun to develop by  working in partnership with neighbourhood team colleagues and acute care colleagues.


The neighbourhoods in Manchester where the teams are operating, and where you will be based are:

  • Cheetham and Crumpsall;
  • Gorton and Levenshulme;
  • Wythenshawe (Baguley, Sharston, Woodhouse Park)


The HIPC service is an established team but you will have the chance to directly influence how the team operates in the local neighbourhood where you are based.


The job description and person specification for the Senior Nurse role is attached and identifies some of the core skills and experience required for the role.


The key to the success of the HIPC service is the need for each team member to be committed to:

  • A focus on holistic care and support and the commitment to work with people and their carers to develop and implement care and support plans with them with a view to them better managing their illnesses and developing local support mechanisms longer term. – very long…..
  • Personal and professional development as well as commitment to the continued development of the team and the HIPC service offer.
  • Integrated and multi-disciplinary team working, including a flexible approach to working across individual boundaries where required.
  • Challenging the status quo to improve service delivery and patient care.


These roles are being recruited as substantive full-time posts within Manchester Foundation Trust Community Services, however day to day operational management will be from the three GP Federations in Manchester who are leading the delivery of the High Impact Primary Care service.
