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. 

Are you an experienced Adult nurse ready for a new challenge? We have an opportunity for a Junior Sister to join Ward 44, a fast paced acute ward that cares for patients with varied malignant and non malignant haematological conditions, which includes a high number of complex bone marrow transplants.

We are one of the major units in the country who offer chemotherapy, bone marrow transplants, sickle cell anaemia care and haemophillia care. The Trust is a centre of excellence for care and research and you will be expected to work with the rest of the nursing team and liaise very closely with other members of the MDT to ensure that our patients receive the best possible care and experience.

The job is challenging and interesting as the treatments are different for each patient and so their care and needs are different too. The trials and protocols are varied and there's lots to learn. We are a friendly, experienced team, who strive to deliver excellent patient care and we spend time with the patients, their families and hope that this encourages better care. We are aware that it's hard work, but this is a perfect opportunity for the right person looking to extend their skills.

You will have;

*Excellent communication and leadership skills
*Evidence of involvement in change management
*Evidence of diplomacy and negotiation skills
*Good knowledge of clinical information systems e.g. PAS and ICE
*Relevant professional qualification
*A portfolio of evidence showing achievements in practice/speciality

In return there are various training opportunities available on and off site and we would offer you a personal development plan tailored to your individual needs. You will be encouraged to expand and develop your knowledge, skills and competencies within a supported and friendly environment.
