Our new organisation will provide a single hospital service across the city of Manchester and in 12- 18 months will also include the services currently provided by North Manchester General Hospital.  These changes will make a real difference to the health outcomes and quality of life for the people of Manchester.  That’s why this really is an extremely exciting and challenging period in the delivery of health and social care in Greater Manchester and one that provides a wealth career opportunities for great people right across our Group.

Our specialist hospitals are home to hundreds of world-class clinicians and academic staff. Our vision is to develop a flexible, multi-skilled workforce delivering integrated care across health and social care boundaries. Now, you could play a key role in delivering that vision. Along the way, you’ll discover that we offer excellent opportunities for development and progression.

We’re looking for a Band 6 nurse with a background in Stroke  – or it could be that you’re a senior Band 5 nurse looking to take the next step up. You’ll be joining our small, friendly team at Trafford Hospital, on Ward 1, Stroke Unit .

Your confidence, enthusiasm and excellent communication skills will set you apart. And with that in mind, we’ll also look to you to support and guide other junior staff, acting as a positive role model not just for them, but for patients and carers too. As well as that, you’ll drive our core values forward to ensure that pride, respect, empathy, consideration, compassion and dignity underpin everything we do.
You will be supported to develop in the role through an annual appraisal process and a bespoke development programme.
