From 1st October 2017, Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CMFT) and the University Hospital of South Manchester NHS Foundation Trust (UHSM) has joined together to create a new Foundation Trust which has been named Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust. 

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. 

Make a real difference to the lives of our babies and their families

On the Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Saint Mary's Hospital, we shine in our delivery of high quality nursing and medical care, education and research. One of three Neonatal Intensive Care Units in Greater Manchester, we are unique in offering both neonatal medicine and surgery. We pride ourselves on caring for our staff as much as we do for our patients, so whether you are experienced or just starting out, choose a team that cares, choose us.

Working with pride, dignity and respect, you will take responsibility for coordinating the clinical area along with planning, evaluating and delivering all aspects of care to infants and their families. Acting as a professional role model to other staff, you will take an active role in both developing nursing practice and acting as a preceptor to junior nurses. It’s an excellent opportunity to create a culture of consideration, compassion and empathy within our busy and fast-moving intensive care environment.

Passionate about your role as a registered nurse, you will have excellent organisation skills with the ability to adapt to changing situations quickly. Experience in neonatal care would be great, but not essential; however, a keen interest in neonatal care together with the desire to help shape future services is crucial. Forward-thinking and open-minded, treating colleagues and patients with respect, having real empathy and consideration – all these traits are key, what’s more, you’ll be proud to make a real and lasting difference to the lives of the infants and families within your care.

Here at Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust, we’re proud of the support and training we offer to our teams. We provide an extensive local induction and access to the North West neonatal induction programme followed by a culture of on-going learning. In the future, and if you choose, there will also be the opportunity to undertake a placement on the Neonatal Unit at Wythenshawe Hospital as both services have recently merged.

So, if you’re keen to develop your knowledge of neonatal intensive care, there’s never been a better time to join our supportive team.
