91 Dermot Murphy Close is a purpose built unit caring for our most complex and vulnerable community patients. We are part of the Manchester Local Care Organisation (MLCO) in Integrated Community Services.

We wish to recruit a Unit Manager to lead the well-established team and continue to shape and develop this Continuing Healthcare facility.

The Unit is situated in Withington M20 in a peaceful location with its own grounds and on site parking. We have 22 beds, 1 of which is for short stay respite patients. We have an on site chef and a social coordinator who has developed a wide range of activities and social experiences for our patients.

You will need an innovative approach towards providing specialist support to highly dependent individuals across all age groups with complex and chronic health problems, in an environment which encourages freedom of choice and improved quality of life. We are a nurse led service who are proud to care for patients with long term, primary health needs and as such our nurses are highly skilled in clinical care.

The role requires excellent clinical leadership and communication skills and an ability to work in partnership with a diverse multidisciplinary team. Although there is considerable medical support, this is an autonomous role in a nurse led unit, and the post holder must therefore be prepared to support and develop the team to make clinical decisions and deliver care at the highest standard.

To be a nurse at Dermot Murphy is to be part of something special, which is why we need a dynamic and proactive manager; someone who is adaptable to new roles, responsive to change and always looking to improve and develop innovative practice.

We can offer training, flexibility, friendliness and a caring environment in which to work.
