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. 


Salford Royal is the leading Major Trauma Centre for Greater Manchester and the host of the Greater Manchester Neuroscience Centre.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a highly motivated registered nurse to join our regional Acute Stroke Unit. The Comprehensive Stroke Centre for Greater Manchester at Salford Royal is a 17 bedded mixed sex ward which provides 24 hour acute stroke assessment and care 7 days a week.

The unit has expanded within the last 12 months in response to service demands. The Unit has SCAPE status which means we provide safe, clean and personal care every time and constantly strive to maintain this high standard.

As a Band 5 nurse you will care for patients in the acute phase following a stroke. You will have the opportunity to develop enhanced and specialist skills in the assessment of stroke and to assist in the interventional treatment includes assessing patients within the A&E department. Alongside the ward senior nursing team you will be supported by a nurse consultant and advanced nurse practitioners.

We are looking to appoint enthusiastic, highly motivated nurses with a passion for delivering high standards of care. The multi-disciplinary team work closely within stroke services and also have regular contact with other hospitals within the network, therefore excellent communication skills are essential.

You will be supported within the role with on-going training which includes the stroke foundation programme and completion of specific stroke competencies.

You will be able to:-

• Demonstrate excellent interpersonal skills
• Aspire to deliver excellent standards of care
• Be able to work collaboratively with all members of the MDT
• Demonstrate a high level of compassion for patients and their relatives

In return you will:-

Be developed by dedicated training professionals. You’ll have access to a wide range of learning opportunities and state of the art facilities, including seminar rooms, an IT suite, a library, skills labs and an on-site simulation suite. You’ll also have access to CPD to help take your career in the right direction.

Be supported to develop the competence and confidence you need as an effective, independent healthcare professional. You’ll receive a full induction programme, benefit from classroom-based training and clinical skills assessments. Newly qualified nurses will also benefit from our 12 month preceptorship programme supported by our dedicated Practice Development Team. You will also receive support from our senior nursing team and highly specialised nurses.
In addition to your Band 5 Salary you’ll be rewarded with a variety of salary sacrifice schemes, a wide range of health and wellbeing initiatives, flexible working and an on-site nursery. You’ll also enjoy a working environment that’s every bit as good as the care we provide.

If you are a newly qualified nurse we will pay your first year's NMC registration fee as well as paying you at Band 4 until you receive you NMC PIN.

We can also offer a competitive relocation package (subject to conditions).

Interviews will be taking place on the 8th March 2018.
