Inpatient Unit Staff Nurse


Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust (GMMH) provides a wide range of inpatient and community-based mental health care to people living in Bolton, Salford, Trafford and the city of Manchester, in addition to specialist mental health and substance misuse services across Greater Manchester, the North West of England and beyond. The Trust employs around 5,000 members of staff and delivers services from more than 140 locations including five hospital sites, a variety of community facilities and in prisons.

Recognised nationally as a high performing provider, we have recently been rated as ‘Outstanding’ for leadership (well-led) by the Care Quality Commission. We acquired Manchester Mental Health and Social Care NHS Trust last year and are now focused on delivering our plan of investment to provide the same world-class, sustainable mental health care for people living in Manchester as for the other areas we serve. Working with partners across Greater Manchester through devolution, we are promoting parity of esteem for mental with physical health. We are shifting the focus to prevention, early intervention and resilience in communities, to deliver a sustainable and integrated mental health system across the region.

Band 5 Staff Nurse Positions. (RMNs and RGNs).

HMP Manchester Inpatient Healthcare Unit.


Interesting opportunities have arisen within the inpatient unit at HMP Manchester.  We are aiming to recruit both registered Adult care and registered mental health nurses. The unit cares for patients who experience acute severe mental health problems, mental health crisis, acute physical problems and palliative care patients. The aim of the unit is to endeavor to deliver evidence based optimal quality care that is equivalent to NHS standards. The position will appeal to clinicians who believe in this philosophy and wish to adapt their practice within a forensic environment.   Both nursing disciplines will be expected to care both for patients with both mental health and physical. However, you will be expected to excel your designated clinical specialism.

The position will be challenging and rewarding with the objective of establishing productive professional relationships with non clinical professionals. Professional development is encouraged and supported.  The position will involve rotational work patterns including weekends and night duty.
