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. 


 

An exciting opportunity has arisen for nurses to develop their skills in caring for acutely unwell patients on our elective neurosurgical ward H7.

Ward H7 Spinal Unit is a 22 bedded neurosurgery ward caring for patients with a range of neurosurgical conditions. Incorporated into the ward are 6 monitored care beds caring for patients requiring a higher level of nursing intervention post-operatively.

This post is for nurses to care predominately for patients within the monitored bay. Experience of caring for patients requiring a higher level of nursing intervention is not required as you will be supported by the ward senior nursing team to develop these skills along with a completion of a competency package.

H7 is a SCAPE accredited ward achieved through the Salford Royal Nursing Assessment and Accreditation System. Alongside the ward senior nursing team the ward is supported by specialist nurse teams and advanced nurse practitioners.

You will receive support from an experienced and well established senior nursing team as well as a dedicated Practice Development Team. In addition to your Trust induction, you will also receive a ward based induction and mentorship.

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 student nurse.

You will be able to:-
• Demonstrate excellent interpersonal skills
• Aspire to deliver excellent standards of care
• Be able to work collaboratively with all members of the MDT
• Demonstrate a high level of compassion for patients and their relatives

In return you will:-
• Be developed by dedicated training professionals. You’ll have access to a wide range of learning opportunities and state of the art facilities, including seminar rooms, an IT suite, a library, skills labs and an on-site simulation suite. You’ll also have access to CPD to help take your career in the right direction.

• Be supported to develop the competence and confidence you need as an effective, independent healthcare professional. You’ll receive a full induction programme, benefit from classroom-based training and clinical skills assessments. Newly qualified nurses will also benefit from our 12 month preceptorship programme supported by our dedicated Practice Development Team. You will also receive support from our senior nursing team and highly specialised nurses.

• In addition to your Band 5 Salary you’ll be rewarded with a variety of salary sacrifice schemes, a wide range of health and wellbeing initiatives, flexible working and an on-site nursery. You’ll also enjoy a working environment that’s every bit as good as the care we provide.

• If you are student nurse qualify in 2018 we pay your 1st years NMC registration fee as well as pay you at Band 4 until you receive you NMC PIN.

• We can also offer a competitive relocation package (subject to conditions)

Interviews will take place on the 8th March 2018.
