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

Whether you’re a student nurse or already qualified and looking to return to the profession, Manchester Foundation Trust has just the job. That’s because, right now, we’re looking to expand our Orthopaedic nursing team to ward A5.

Join our team where you’ll have the opportunity to care for patients recovering from a number of acute orthopaedic treatments. You will have the opportunity to develop your clinical and leadership skills on a busy acute ward and develop within your staff nurse post.

We treat emergency orthopaedic trauma patients. We have a high number of fragility fracture patients and a dedicated trauma coordination team to expedite surgery and we work closely with the multi-disciplinary team to ensure right care, right place, and right patient. Many of our patients live with dementia and we are looking for nurses who can build relationships with the patients and their families. Working with patients who live with dementia provides opportunities to support the latest thinking in nursing. A5 has a brand new RITA (Reminiscence Interactive Therapy/Activities) system, which provides a fantastic resource to aid dementia cate. You will have the benefit of working in a multi-professional team including a therapeutic activity coordinator, so there are endless opportunities to develop your skills, knowledge and experience in this field.

To succeed, you will need to be committed to delivering high quality, patient focused care with pride and respect, have excellent interpersonal skills and be able to provide evidence of personal and professional development. Along the way, you’ll be supported by in-house Educational Practitioners and strong nurse leaders who will equip you with the support and guidance you need. We have an excellent preceptorship programme, a robust mandatory training and appraisal system, in house training opportunities and you can work towards your mentorship qualification.

A5 was recently awarded for providing an outstanding placement experience for the Trainee Nurse Associates.

Applications are invited from hardworking, innovative and highly motivated nurses to join a dynamic team in our Orthopaedic Ward .With your natural skills and abilities to prioritise, you will carry out a range of duties that may vary day to day, and acting as the patient’s advocate, you will work within the NMC Code of Conduct working in a vibrant, friendly and supportive environment. You will be required to work flexibly in a changing environment, confident, approachable and able to demonstrate ability to work under own initiative.

We are looking for Band 5's who are compassionate and caring with an ability to focus on the delivery of high calibre patient centred care. To join us, you should have the ability to motivate, inspire and support others while dealing with the varied and challenging demands and responsibilities of this post. A calm, diplomatic and caring approach and a commitment to provide high quality, safe and effective care is essential.
