We are currently seeking to recruit experienced, enthusiastic, motivated and resilient professional Scrub Practitioners.

If you like a challenge and if you have a passion for sharing your clinical expertise with others, then this exciting role will give you job satisfaction and a real chance to make a difference.

We are a dynamic and forward thinking teaching hospital with a theatre department that covers a wide range of specialities and provides 24 hour emergency cover.

Lancashire Teaching Hospitals is a Trust where great care and great careers go hand in hand. We have two hospitals working closely with each other and providing excellent care with compassion to the communities we serve.

We are a friendly and welcoming Trust and will support you in your role. Our in house education team will provide you with a comprehensive induction package and you will be supported to develop a detailed skills portfolio which will provide evidence for revalidation and progression, including the opportunity to work in a variety of specialties supported by our Trust. A desire to join a team to develop and implement innovative practice within the theatre complex is essential.

We offer Health and wellbeing benefits including Relaxing Complementary Therapies, Exercise classes and a Great Social Life.

In addition to the many other benefits of working at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, you may also be entitled to apply for our relocation package. As a Trust we recognise the importance of securing the right candidate for a role; and we therefore offer an attractive relocation package of £1,500 for any nurse relocating more than one hour away from their current address. 

For any further information regarding our relocation package, please contact a member of the Recruitment Team.
