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:
Are you a Qualified RN with experience of working in an acute care setting? Do you have the hard-working, enthusiastic and conscientious approach it takes to work in a stressful but rewarding environment? Then consider a move to the Trust’s Specialist Medicine Day Unit team (SMDU)
You spend a lot of time at work, so why not enjoy your time there? We’re a small, friendly, experienced team that work hard but genuinely enjoy what we are doing. We go out of our way to spend time with the patients and their families and hope this encourages better care. We are aware that it’s hard work but, for the right person, it’s a perfect opportunity to extend your skills within a center of excellence for care.
Extremely busy and fast paced. The day unit provides care for patients who require regular or one-off treatments / investigations.
The department is renowned for its excellent standards of care underpinned by evidence-based practice. The work within SMDU is sure to present exciting challenges and opportunities.
The role of Staff Nurse is both challenging and interesting. As well as co-coordinating the outpatient activity to ensure the service is well run and waiting times are kept to a minimum, you’ll also get involved in service improvements within the department. A great chance to develop leadership skills that are patient-centered, you’ll also be encouraged to expand and develop your knowledge, skills and competencies within a supported and friendly environment.
Competence with venapuncture and cannulation is a necessity however experience within a day case setting is not necessary. You must be willing to learn about the department. Integrity and vision, plus a real desire to take the service forward and expand the nursing role, are also essential. In return, there will be various training opportunities and you’ll also have a personal development plan that’s tailored to your individual needs.
