Staff Nurse - Acute Medical Unit /Acute Medical Receiving Unit

NHS AfC: Band 5

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:

  • Excels in quality, safety, patient experience, research, innovation and teaching
  • Attracts, develops and retains great people
  • Is recognised internationally as a leading healthcare provider

Whether you’re newly qualified looking for your first supportive role, or an experienced nurse looking for a change, we have the perfect opportunity for you!

The Acute Medical Unit (AMU) and the Acute Medical receiving Unit (AMRU) at Wythenshawe Hospital are looking for highly motivated, innovative and experienced nurses to join our dynamic team.

AMU is a 56 bedded unit divided into two areas, Acute Medical and Short Stay Medical. AMRU is a seated unit with trolley assessment areas. Staff will be afforded the opportunity to rotate between both units.

You will be given dedicated time to learn and develop your own skills by working alongside our highly experienced Clinical Educator. This role is set up to offer a ward specific preceptorship and training program for all new starters and enables us to provide you with an excellent induction, support with re-validation and on going training package. Working within these units is both exciting and challenging. We work closely with our new state of the art Emergency Department caring for a diverse group of acutely unwell medical patients, with Cardiovascular, Respiratory, Gastroenterology and Chronic health conditions. Staff are also exposed to managing patients with a higher acuity within the unit, and as such we work closely with the Critical Care Outreach team and provide 8 cardiac telemetry beds across the unit for close monitoring.

If you have considered acute medical nursing we would welcome you to come and visit us, and we will spend time showing you around, introducing you to the team, and showing you what is involved in relation to care and assessment and pathways on our unit. Flexible working patterns can be discussed at interview.

Please note that the closing date is given as a guide, we reserve the right to close this vacancy once a sufficient number of applications has been received. You are advised to submit your application as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
