Staff Nurse - F3 Urology

Band 5

Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CMFT) and the University Hospital of South Manchester NHS Foundation Trust (UHSM) will join together to create a new Foundation Trust in October 2017 which will be named Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust; subject to required approvals.   Following this, the plan is for North Manchester General Hospital (which is currently part of The Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust) to join the new organisation around 12-18 months later.

As a result of this plan, it’s such an extremely exciting and challenging period in the delivery of health and social care in Greater Manchester and one that provides a wealth of opportunity. Our new organisation will provide a single hospital service across the city of Manchester and in 12- 18 months will also include the services currently provided by North Manchester General Hospital.  These changes will make a real difference to the health outcomes and quality of life for the people of Manchester. 

We are looking to recruit nurses who are passionate about patient safety and the delivery of exceptional quality care to patients with urological conditions. Experience is not required as you will receive an exceptional training and preceptorship package. You will be supernumerary for a total of 4 weeks, during which time you will undertake corporate and clinical induction and work alongside our Practice Based Educators to gain confidence, knowledge and skills in your area of practice.

Together with The Christie hospital, our urology department is recognised for delivering highly specialised care in areas such as urological cancer, renal stone disease and incontinence, receiving tertiary referrals from the whole North West region for complex cases of these conditions. Our team has received accolades for providing a “world class service” for patients with urological cancers and outcomes for cancer surgery here are among the best in the country

We know that to be the best, we need to recruit, develop and support the best nurses to continue to provide an outstanding service to our patients. Nursing roles at The University Hospital of South Manchester NHS Foundation Trust (UHSM) are about having access to fantastic learning facilities and developmental opportunities. Our nurses have access to the UHSM Academy and LEAD Training Programmes, coaching, and department specific training and development opportunities.

Our commitment is further reinforced by our robust Trust Nurse Revalidation Programme – offering an e-portfolio and dedicated individual support. We can offer training, flexibility, friendliness and a caring environment in which to work and provide a number of benefits.
