At East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust our vision is to be widely recognised for providing safe, personal and effective care. We currently provide high quality services and treat over 600,000 people across East Lancashire and the surrounding area. We employ over 7,000 staff, many of whom are internationally renowned and have won awards for their work.
A brand new bespoke unit opened in September ’18. This unit takes acute medical patients that can be managed without needing an overnight stay in hospital. It can accommodate up to 60 patients each day. Patients attend the unit from referrals via GP or ED. After a triage the patients have a series of diagnostics and treatments before being discharged.
It is a great nursing and medical team who work together to ensure patients have the best care possible.
Our ideal candidate will have some experience in a caring background and a commitment to quality patient care. They must be flexible with their working hours; the unit does cover twilight shifts. They need to be cool and confident under pressure and be able to organise their working according to clinical priority.
The position of the Band 5 Staff Nurse will require a background of medicine and at least 6 months of experience. Ideally the candidate should have some Cardiology background but this is not essential. Leadership qualities and communication is a priority. We work closely with AMU A/B, Urgent Care Centres, Emergency Department and triage GP calls from the East Lancashire locality.
Team work is vital to provide the best care and outcomes.
We will provide training and support for you; we have a practice educator who will guide you through any learning you require.
Please come and visit we welcome any interest in our unit.
Our opening times are Mon-Sun 07:00-23:00

Dear Potential Applicant,
It is important you are made aware of the changes which East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust has implemented with regard to charging for the cost of undertaking Disclosure and Barring Scheme (DBS) Checks (previously known as Criminal Records Bureau or CRB) and how this may impact upon you.
As this position is exempted from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and involves work that is identified as a regulated activity as defined in the Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Act (2006), any offer of employment is provisional upon a satisfactory DBS check being obtained.
The cost of an Enhanced Disclosure will be £48.00, which includes a small handling fee.
In line with other NHS organisations in the North West Region, the Trust is now passing the charge for undertaking a DBS check on to candidates in the event they are successfully appointed into the post for which they have applied. Candidates can choose whether to pay this over 1-3 months as a deduction from the monthly salary. However, if you are applying for a post as a BANK worker, the payment must be made in full at the time of employment checks. By applying for this vacancy you are agreeing to this undertaking in the event you are successfully appointed.
