Dystonia Support Specialist Nurse

Band 6

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 has one of the strongest track records of providing excellent patient care services, financial delivery and staff satisfaction in the NHS.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a motivated nurse who wants to make a significant difference to the health outcomes of adults with movement disorders.

You will work as an integral member of the Movement Disorder Nursing Team at the Greater Manchester Neurosciences Centre based at Salford Royal Hospital. You will support the current Movement Disorder Team with management of a case load of patients and after training will use their knowledge, skills and experience to provide a specialist dystonia service.

You must be able to work independently as well as within the team, taking direction from the Band 7 Specialist Nurse and Consultants.

The role is diverse and you must use their judgement, discretion and decision making to guide clinical care within a variety of clinical settings. There will also be close working with the wider MDT within the Trust to provide specialist advice and support.

We are looking for individuals who can bring knowledge and experience of chronic long term disease management, preferably in the neurological field. Your ability to be flexible, innovative and initiate change in an ever developing service is essential. Good organisational skills, flexibility and the ability to work autonomously are key attributes. A commitment to setting and maintaining the highest levels of patient experience is also essential.

We will provide education and support to the successful candidate to meet all the disired requirements to care for this very specialist group of patients.

In line with the Trust’s Single Equality Scheme we welcome applications from everyone irrespective of ethnic origin, disability, age, gender, gender identity,
sexual preference, disability, nationality, religion, marital status, social back ground or trade union membership. However, as members of ethnicity minority groups and individuals with disabilities are currently under-represented at this level of post, we would encourage applications from members of these groups. Appointment will be based on merit alone.
