Staff Nurse - Paediatrics

This truly is an exciting time to join North Manchester General Hospital.

A once-in-a-generation opportunity will see our hospital rebuilt and the creation of a health hub within our grounds.

On 1st April, 2020, we became part of the Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust under a management agreement.  We expect to transfer formally into the Trust in the near future.

This will be the final piece in a plan that set out the benefits of creating a Single Hospital Service for the city of Manchester, uniting multiple hospitals and a provider of community services.

We are part of changing the way care is delivered to address health inequalities in our region.

Collaborating with other hospital sites within the MFT footprint, our capabilities will grow. We’ll continue to attract highly skilled staff and we’ll be able to take a more sustainable approach to address  the rising demand on services in the context of workforce and financial constraints.

People across the City of Manchester, Trafford and Greater Manchester will receive high quality care delivered to consistent standards , as a result.

This is a remarkable period in the delivery of health and social care in Greater Manchester, and one that provides a wealth of opportunity for all.  Together we can make a real difference to the health outcomes, wellness and quality of life of our diverse communities.

To do this we need outstanding people to deliver services directly to our patients, and to provide invaluable support services behind the scenes.

Join us and you will be part of a hospital with an important role in our communities.   We are proud of our history, serving North Manchester communities since 1876. One of the first things you will realise when you join us is the community feel and the supportive and nurturing culture. 

While proud of our past, we are also excited about the investment and plans to create a new hospital with a modern community wellbeing hub that will continue to serve our communities for many, many, more years to come.

This is a vibrant rejuvenation of the site.  We are looking for people who understand the importance of team work, flexibility and supporting colleagues. 

Join us on our exceptional journey.  You’ll thrive in our open, inclusive and collaborative environment where everyone matters, and is respected for who they are.  We will help you to develop, and support you to deliver your very best work.

Become part of our ‘family’.

Is your passion caring for sick children with a wide variety of surgical and medical conditions? If so, why not consider applying to join the team on the Children’s Unit at North Manchester General Hospital.

We are seeking Band 5 Nurses with a wide range of skills and experience to complement our existing nursing team working on our dynamic children’s ward. The successful applicants will join a multidisciplinary team of skilled and highly motivated staff who provide specialist paediatric inpatient care to children and young people in and around Manchester.

We are an evolving team, always looking to improve our service delivery and actively promoting the patients’ voice and their experience.

We pride ourselves on our close working relationship with the Children’s Emergency Department, Children's Observation & Assessment Unit and Children’s Community Nursing Teams within Pennine and the wider Manchester area. We have a strong ethos of inter-professional team working, and are keen to develop and progress staff to maintain enthusiasm and passion for their role. The Children's Unit is a secondary care setting, with 20 beds caring for both medical and surgical patients, as well as having a designated area to care for paediatric critical care patients. We are looking to recruit skilled Paediatric nurses who are competent in IV therapy and medicines management, as well as achieving Paediatric Immediate Life Support, and willing to work towards - if not already achieved - Advanced Paediatric Life Support (APLS).

We are committed to the professional development of our staff and provide a variety of educational and training opportunities. You will be supported by a team of Practice Educators who will guide your development. Your development will be tailored to meet your needs and the needs of the service. Our wealth of experience is supported by exciting and innovative education that is classroom and ward based.

We follow a blended model and are interested in creatively enhancing our workforce to meet the needs of children and young people. We are particular keen on hearing from you if you are interested in looking after children nursed in paediatric critical care, and/or focusing on children being cared for in partnership with a surgical speciality.
