Join us and be part of something bigger.

We have paved the way for excellence in Integrated Care and in July 2016 took the  pioneering step to form one of the first Integrated Care Organisations.  We now provide adult social care services alongside our established healthcare services, which has given us the chance to develop better, more joined up ways of working that deliver improved outcomes for the local community. 


Are you a newly qualified nurse or a qualified nurse with a passion for Gastroenterology?

We are looking for highly motivated qualified and newly qualified staff nurses to join our newly launched Shining Stars Gastroenterology Rotational Programme. The programme is an exciting 18 month rotational programme consisting of three 6 month placements; within an acute gastroenterological ward (L2), a surgical gastroenterological ward (B1 / B2) and within endoscopy.

Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust is a ground breaking Teaching Trust and is rated as Outstanding by the CQC therefore we are looking to recruit, develop and support standout nurses looking for a future career in gastroenterology.

You will be joining an organisation that is committed to becoming the safest organisation in the NHS and a divisional team that are committed to delivering the highest levels of patient care. You’ll be inspired to build on our impressive track record of improving outcomes and experience for patients and their families.

As well as an interest in gastroenterology you will have a willingness to develop the clinical skills and competencies to become an advocate in your field. You will gain experience and exposure to the treatment of acute, medical and surgical management of gastroenterology conditions. You will gain experience and exposure to pre and post-operative care, stoma care & management, enteral feeding, management of drains and pain management. You will become confident in managing patients that are acutely unwell. You will receive support from a variety of multi professional teams. Your portfolio of clinical skills will equip you to progress into a competent and skilled senior nurse or as a specialist nurse.

In return we will ensure that you will:-

  • Join our outstanding 12 month preceptorship programme (newly qualified nurses only)
  • Are fully supported by the Practice Development Team, Senior Nursing Team and Specialist Nurses throughout the 18 month programme
  • Develop advanced clinical competencies within each placement and receive a Certificate in Gastroenterology (based on the Trust’s local competency framework)
  • Receive additional bespoke study days
  • Develop clinical leadership skills
  • Be fully supported by a mentor in practice who will support your learning and development
