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

At MFT it is an extremely exciting and challenging period in the delivery of health and social care in Greater Manchester and one that provides a wealth of opportunity. Our new organisation will provide a single hospital service across the city of Manchester and in 12- 18 months will also include the services currently provided by North Manchester General Hospital. These changes will make a real difference to the health outcomes and quality of life for the people of Manchester.

At the Manchester Royal Eye Hospital (MREH) we offer a unique range of services to the North West, treating and managing the simplest to the most complex conditions and diseases. For our nurses, it means the chance to gain diverse experience in pioneering teams within ophthalmology.

An excellent opportunity has arisen for a Band 5 Staff Nurse to join our ophthalmic outpatient nursing team based at the Royal Eye hospitals central site. You are required to have a flexible approach to working, be self-motivated and a great team player.

We currently work Monday-Saturday but with a possible move to a seven day NHS there will be a requirement for you to work a flexible shift pattern over 7 days a week.

We are committed to delivering an excellent ophthalmic nursing service that delivers the best patient experience and care. We show our care for our staff through excellent development and progression opportunities.

We will provide you with a comprehensive induction programme and personal development plan. You will be supported throughout your career with regular reviews of progress to help you develop appropriate knowledge and skills.

So if you want a new start, then this could be the opportunity you have been waiting for to join our expanding team.
