Are you a Student Nurse who is due to qualify in March 2017? Are you someone who is passionate about the 6 Cs of Nursing and who always puts the needs of the patient first? If so we have opportunities for you to join our dedicated nursing team here at Bolton NHS Foundation Trust.
We are an integrated acute and community Trust committed to excellent clinical performance and patient care. We are in a very strong and stable position both operationally and financially. We are located in the north west of England very close to the cities of Manchester and Liverpool as well as the Lake and Peak Districts.
Whatever your interest or expertise is in nursing care we have opportunities for you across our wards and departments in both our Acute Adult Care (Medical) and Elective Care (Surgical) Divisions. We also have opportunities within our Community services if that interests you. Within all areas there are opportunities to further develop clinical, professional and personal skills as we are absolutely committed to helping you develop to your full potential.
We recognise and appreciate that our staff have different needs outside work and we can offer a number of flexible working patterns and hours to suit you.
You will have compassion, excellent interpersonal skills and a desire to develop your knowledge and expertise further whilst driving the quality of your care forward.
If you are a Student Nurse who is due to qualify in March 2017 and wishes to find out more about our vacancies we would like to invite you to attend a Trust Recruitment open day for Student Nurses – which will be held on Saturday 24th September 2016 in the Trust Education Centre, Royal Bolton Hospital. The aim of the open day is for you to get a better understanding of the Trust and our culture at Bolton.
There is no need to make an appointment and we will be open from 10:00am to 2:00pm on Saturday 24th September 2016 - please report to the Education Centre, Royal Bolton Hospital. There will be opportunities for you to talk to a wide range of Nursing teams from across Trust services in a relaxed and friendly environment – we are more than happy to take interested parties on a tour of our clinical areas as part of the open day. If you like what you see we can even arrange an interview on the day for you!
We think our Trust is a great place to work and develop, see some comments about working at Bolton from our existing nurses (taken from our recent ‘friends and families test’):-
“I have worked here 12 years and know a lot of staff from consultants to domestics. The very vast majority of people are wholly committed to providing excellent care for patients and I feel very confident this is the morale of this trust”
“I love my job and the trust is a great place to work”
“The NHS is a tough place to work and Bolton is no exception. However if someone specifically wanted to work in the NHS I would have no hesitation in recommending Bolton as a place to work. Its hard work but the staff are friendly and passionate about what they do on the whole. I have worked here over 30 years and have never wished to look elsewhere.”
“I like coming to work. I have great support from my ward manager and other staff.”
“I think the quality of care delivered at the Trust is very good and I trust the staff to look after relatives and friends well.”
“With being a smaller hospital it has a family feel to it”
“The staff teams are highly motivated and work well together despite the many and varied challenges of working in an acute hospital in the current financial and health climate”
“I love my job and I love the people who I work with. We spend a lot of time at work and it makes it more happy and worthwhile if you like the people you work with.”
“Well run, visible management (who are clinical in background). Real focus on quality rather than finance as the first priority. Care taken at every level to reduce risk of harm to patients.”
“A friendly and supportive place to work, with very good relationships between colleagues.”
“We are the best hospital in the area - I trust the staff and I feel that patient care is our priority”
“The Royal Bolton Hospital is a wonderful place for care with staff who do their best to give support to patients.”
“I have come recently from a very poor trust and am very impressed with the support staff get and the chance to get involved at all levels”
“I have worked for the Trust for 28 years and it has been a happy workplace”
“Bolton NHS have been very supportive as an organisation both in terms of my employment and I was also seconded to do my nurse training 15 years ago. Thank you.”
