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

Are you ready for the next stage in your career pathway? Are you committed to growing into a band 6 nurse to co-ordinate the unit and support junior colleagues? If yes, then this is an excellent opportunity for you.

You will rotate between the main ward, 24 beds including a HDU bed, and POAU (Paediatric Observation and Assessment Unit) which has 10 beds. We care for children 0-16yrs covering acute medical conditions, plastics, ENT, orthopaedic, urology and general surgery. The POAU is open 24/7 to accommodate referrals from GP’s, midwives, community nurses and open access patients. We also work closely with our Paediatric A&E Department
