We are the Major Trauma Centre and the Vascular Centre for Lancashire and South Cumbria.

We also provide the local hospital services for the 400,000 population of central Lancashire from our Hospitals in Preston and Chorley.

As a new team we are looking to build a team of enthusiastic, hard-working, motivated staff who provide excellent care with compassion and we are offering you the opportunity to join us.
We are looking to create & develop a new team who have an interest in the care and experience of patients requiring assessment and treatment for a variety of different surgical conditions. You will be joining a team who are dedicated to the high standard of nursing care given to our patients, who have a passion for nursing as well as an enthusiasm for championing the needs of the patient and their families and carers.
We always put patients first, and believe that creating a positive working environment, where staff feel valued, supported and empowered, will enable us to achieve this for every patient, every time. We expect every single member of staff to treat patients, families and colleagues with care and compassion, and to work together to achieve the very best outcomes. As an organisation we believe that every staff member plays a vital role in the delivery of excellent care with compassion, we are proud of our hospitals, and of the quality of care we provide for our patients, and that makes this a great place to work.
As a Teaching Hospital we are committed to your continuous personal and professional development, so it will come as no surprise for you to hear that we offer a wide range of clinical and non-clinical development opportunities ranging from time management to interview skills. We are keen to provide all our staff with the opportunity to learn, which means some of our courses are provided via online learning through our own dedicated Trust site, so staff can develop knowledge as and when they want or need to.
