There has never been a more exciting time to join us. Tameside and Glossop Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust (T&G IC) will provide the foundation for one of the first ICOs in England, bringing together a wide range of health and social care services for the benefit of local people. The ICO will manage a person’s entire care in the future, by linking up hospital services with community care and mental health services as well as working closely with GPs.

We expect that, to fully transform these services, will take between three and five years. This is a unique opportunity for Tameside and Glossop to be at the forefront of developing more joined-up integrated care; and we are absolutely committed to getting it right. To get it right, we need the right, highly skilled patient focused workforce throughout the whole process.

Our values and behaviours are at the heart of everything we do, and the Trust’s values and behaviours drive a culture of openness and candour, where staff are listened to and where patients come first.

PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU HAVE NOT HEARD FROM US WITHIN 2 WEEKS OF THE VACANCY CLOSING DATE, THEN YOU SHOULD ASSUME THAT UNFORTUNATELY ON THIS OCCASION, YOU HAVE BEEN UNSUCCESSFUL.


 

We are looking to recruit Staff Nurses to join our team on Ward 44 - Adult General Medical Ward Specialising in Care of the Elderly.

The Trust has recently made a significant investment in nursing staff – both registered and unregistered nursing staff. We want to become one of the best hospitals in Greater Manchester and to continuously improve. We are now on a journey to become a hospital that consistently delivers high standard of care to all our patients - this is an exciting time to join the Trust and to be part of this journey.

This opportunity would suit both newly qualified and experienced individuals with an interest in developing their knowledge and skills within the division. We are committed to supporting you in developing your nursing career.

The role will be to assess, implement and evaluate care to a high standard, and assist in the management and organisation of work in the clinical area. You will be a progressive team player and a good role model. You will have excellent communication skills and a commitment to delivering the highest standards of care. The successful candidate will have personal values and behaviours closely aligned to those of the Trust – Safety, Care, Communication, Respect and Learning.
