Join us and be part of something bigger.

We have paved the way for excellence in Integrated Care and in July 2016 took the  pioneering step to form one of the first Integrated Care Organisations.  We now provide adult social care services alongside our established healthcare services, which has given us the chance to develop better, more joined up ways of working that deliver improved outcomes for the local community. 


Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust is a ground breaking Teaching Trust and is consistently rated as one of the best places to work in the NHS. The Trust is rated as Outstanding by the CQC and is one of the first integrated providers of hospital, community and primary care services, providing local services to the City of Salford and specialist services to Greater Manchester and beyond. The Trust is the leading Major Trauma Centre for Greater Manchester, the host of the Greater Manchester Neuroscience Centre, one of only two designated Intestinal Failure Units in the UK and one of the largest Dermatology Centres in Europe.

Nurses looking for an exciting challenge and a wealth of opportunities are encouraged to join our current nursing workforces who continually go above and beyond to ensure the Trust delivers outstanding patient care. We have opportunities for both highly motivated newly qualified and experienced nurses.

L6 is a 33 bedded ward caring for patients with acute and long term cardiology, diabetes and endocrine conditions. The unit works closely with HCU and the specialist nurse teams to ensure patients receive a high level of care. You will have opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of Coronary Heart Disease and Cardiovascular management as well as complex diabetes management.

L6 like all wards within Acute/ACM and Specialist Medicine have been successful in achieving the Safe Clean and Personal every time (SCAPE) status, which is the highest level achievable through the nursing assessment and accreditation system.

You will be supported within a strong management structure, providing excellence in care, and encouragement to maximise your potential, development and success.

You will embrace the challenge of working in a highly diverse environment, committed to becoming the safest organisation in the NHS. You will be registered with the NMC and have experience of working in a hospital environment, a newly qualified nurse or a final year student.

If you are a newly qualified nurse we will pay your first year's NMC registration fee as well as paying you at Band 4 until you receive you NMC PIN.
