Ophthalmic Nurse Practitioner/Cataract Nurse

Band 6

We are one of the busiest university teaching hospital trusts in North West England. We manage three hospitals based on two sites: the Royal Liverpool University Hospital, Liverpool University Dental Hospital and Broadgreen Hospital.  Our hospitals have often been at the forefront of medical breakthroughs during our long history at the heart of the city.

Currently Liverpool has two acute Hospital trusts operating over 4 sites; Aintree University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (AUHFT) and Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospital (RLBUHT) which also looks after Liverpool University Dental Hospital.

The trusts, who have a history of collaborative working to fit the needs of the patients of Liverpool and the North West, have identified additional ways to improve the quality and sustainability of services through further partnership. Our doctors, nurses and health professionals have developed a consistent clinical view that it would be in the best interest of patients if they worked as single clinical teams, delivering the same standards of care, in the same way, across hospital sites. This has led to a proposal for both organisations to come together as one, through a formal merger.

It is an exciting time of change for our trusts as we take the best of both organisations to deliver outstanding care for our patients. We also have a focus on staff, with an ambition to make the new organisation the best place for staff to train and work. Merger brings with it an opportunity to reconfigure services, provide more diverse opportunities for career development and attract more research funding, leading to enhancement of staff skills by delivering and performing more innovative treatments and taking part in clinical trials. Joining the trusts at this time is an opportunity to be involved in one of the most significant changes we will see in the local health service and to drive improvements in care.

We will soon be opening a new state of the art hospital. The new hospital will provide every patient with a single bedroom with en-suite facilities. We believe that modern healthcare is as much about privacy, comfort and dignity as it is about pioneering treatments and cutting-edge technology.
