An exciting opportunity has arisen for Assistant Practitioners to work within The Acute Medical Unit at North Manchester General Hospital. We are looking for individuals who have experience in an acute setting and who have an enthusiastic professional with the passion and drive to provide the highest quality care to our patients.

You would support the nursing team on the ward in the delivery of high quality care. You will have excellent communication, organisational skills and ideally have experience within a surgical setting. You will hold a Foundation Degree in a health related subject (e.g. Health and Social Care). Please ensure you have obtained this qualification prior to submission of your application

“Patient care is at the centre of everything we do. The Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust continuously endeavours to enhance the patient experience and provide an exemplary standard of care. As part of it’s striving for excellence, it has been accepted that the same standard of service should be available regardless of the day and time in which it is delivered. In view of this, seven day working is likely to occur throughout with a likely requirement to work fewer but longer shifts in the interest of continuity of care. All positions offered and appointed to are in full recognition and acceptance of these requirements.”

If you are applying for this post as a secondment please ensure you have approval from your current line manager prior to applying.

We reserve the right to close the online vacancy when we are in receipt of sufficient applications. Should you wish to apply for this post you are advised to complete and return your application form as soon as possible.
