Band 5
Contract Type
Full Time
Abbey View is a step up step down unit based on site at Furness general Hospital and we are seeking to recruit a Band 5 nurse to our team.

As a recently combined Acute and Community Trust, Morecambe Bay Hospitals Foundation Trust is enjoying greater integration, working with colleagues across difference sectors within the footprint of Morecambe Bay. The majority of our patients are transferred to Abbey View from the acute wards at FGH once the acute phase of their illness is over. We accept patients from all specialities meaning that our patient group is very diverse, as are there needs.

Main duties of the job

We also provide excellent patient centred, compassionate end of life care.

We are looking for a motivated, committed and innovative nurse to join our fabulous, forward thinking, dynamic team and contribute in the exciting journey ahead for providing transformational care within Morecambe Bay.

We are a multi-disciplinary team who would welcome you to join us.

About us

We operate from three main hospitals - Furness General Hospital (FGH) in Barrow, the Royal Lancaster Infirmary (RLI), and Westmorland General Hospital (WGH) in Kendal, as well as a number of community healthcare premises including Millom Hospital and GP Practice, Queen Victoria Hospital in Morecambe, and Ulverston Community Health Centre.

FGH and the RLI have a range of General Hospital services, with full Emergency Departments, Critical/Coronary Care units and various Consultant-led services.

WGH provides a range of General Hospital services, together with an Urgent Treatment Centre, that can help with a range of non-life threatening conditions such as broken bones and minor illnesses.

All three main hospitals provide a range of planned care including outpatients, diagnostics, therapies, day case and inpatient surgery. In addition, a range of local outreach services and diagnostics are provided from community facilities across Morecambe Bay.

Our community services for adults are provided in people's homes, community centres, clinics, GP Practices, community hospitals and our main hospitals. Our aim is to work with people to help them remain independent, improve their health and manage their conditions through high quality care, advice and support.
