At East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust our vision is to be widely recognised for providing safe, personal and effective care. We currently provide high quality services and treat over 600,000 people across East Lancashire and the surrounding area. We employ over 7,000 staff, many of whom are internationally renowned and have won awards for their work.
Based on the fourth floor of Royal Blackburn Teaching Hospital, D1 is a multi-disciplinary ward within our medicine speciality.
Covering a range of medical specialisms this post will offer the opportunity to broaden clinical knowledge in these areas as well as exposure of working with wider multi-disciplinary specialists such as the diabetic foot team, and Specialist nurses offering ample opportunity to upskill for professional development.
Recently refurbished and compliant to dementia friendly standards, it offers 3 bays and 4 side rooms, for patients with complex diabetes illnesses as well as adolescents and adults who have more general medical issues.
Recently awarded a “green” standard in the Nursing Assessment Performance Framework audit we are proud of the care we give to our patients.
We are committed to the development of our team and are currently 100% compliant with our core skills training and have an established mentor structure in place for both experienced and newly qualified nurses and health care assistants.
This role would suit someone who likes to get to know and care for their patients on a day to day basis, and seeks a level of variety in their work as we cater for a range of medical illnesses so no two days will be the same.
Dear Potential Applicant,
It is important you are made aware of the changes which East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust has implemented with regard to charging for the cost of undertaking Disclosure and Barring Scheme (DBS) Checks (previously known as Criminal Records Bureau or CRB) and how this may impact upon you.
As this position is exempted from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and involves work that is identified as a regulated activity as defined in the Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Act (2006), any offer of employment is provisional upon a satisfactory DBS check being obtained.
The cost of an Enhanced Disclosure will be £48.00, which includes a small handling fee.
In line with other NHS organisations in the North West Region, the Trust is now passing the charge for undertaking a DBS check on to candidates in the event they are successfully appointed into the post for which they have applied. Candidates can choose whether to pay this over 1-3 months as a deduction from the monthly salary. By applying for this vacancy you are agreeing to this undertaking in the event you are successfully appointed.
You must have appropriate UK professional registration.
This post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service.
