We are looking to recruit Band 5 nurses who have an interest in the care and experience of patients in the following areas:

Oncology, Orthopaedics, Neurosurgery, Colo-rectal/Upper-gastro Intestinal Surgery, Burns, Urology, Plastics, Vascular and Head and Neck.

The rotational Staff nurse development programme will consist of working 6 months in three of the above areas, throughout the programme you will have a planned educational programme which will be supported by the ward team, and Practice Educators, newly qualified nurses will also benefit from a 6 month preceptorship programme. In the first year you will develop clinical competencies within your area and in the second year work towards developing management skills.

As a Teaching Hospital we are committed to your continuous personal and professional development, we offer a wide range of clinical and non-clinical development opportunities. We are keen to provide all our staff with the opportunity to learn, which means some of our courses are provided via online learning through our own dedicated Trust site, so staff can develop knowledge as and when they want or need to.

You will be joining a team who are dedicated to the high standard of nursing care, who have a passion for nursing as well as an enthusiasm for championing the needs of the patient and their families and carers.
Lancashire Teaching Hospitals is one of the largest foundation trusts in the North West. We provide a range of specialist tertiary services including cancer, renal, plastics and burns, neurosciences and specialist mobility and rehabilitation. We are the major trauma center and the vascular center for Lancashire and South Cumbria. This means our hospitals deliver the latest treatment for a broad spectrum of serious, complex and uncommon conditions. We also provide the local hospital services for the 400,000 population of Central Lancashire from our hospitals in Preston and Chorley.

We always put patients first, and believe that creating a positive working environment, where staff feel valued, supported and empowered, will enable us to achieve this for every patient, every time. We expect every single member of staff to treat patients, families and colleagues with care and compassion, and to work together to achieve the very best outcomes. As an organisation we believe that every staff member plays a vital role in the delivery of excellent care with compassion, we are proud of our hospitals, and of the quality of care we provide for our patients, and that makes this a great place to work.
