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. 

Whether you’re a student nurse or already qualified and looking to return to the profession, Trafford Hospital within Manchester Foundation Trust has just the job. That’s because, right now, we’re looking to recruit a number of nurses across our Acute Medical Unit.

Join us and you’ll have the opportunity to work in our busy Acute Medical Unit which consists of 19 beds and 10 ambulatory care trolleys. The unit is fast paced with plenty of opportunity to develop your clinical skills coordinating your patient with community services. AMU receives excellent patient and student feedback and has recently been shortlisted for a Nursing Times ‘best student experience’ award.

You will have the benefit of working in a multi-professional team including a Nurse Consultant, so there are endless opportunities to develop your skills, knowledge and experience in this field. The future refurbishment of the unit offers exciting opportunities to be involved in creating a unit that meets the needs of our local population.

For newly qualified nurses the Trust has a robust preceptorship programme and you will receive excellent opportunities for development. Along the way, you will be supported by in-house Clinical Educators and a dedicated senior nursing team who will oversee your training needs, supported by the wider divisional education team.

In return for your skills, enthusiasm and commitment, you can expect a truly excellent comprehensive induction programme whilst being part of a fantastic and dedicated team that supports each other and operates with consideration and dignity at all times.
