''A great place to be cared for; a great place to work''


Do you want to work for a Trust which:

  • Values inclusivity?
  • Invests in you with ongoing in-service training, development and supervision from expertly trained clinical specialists?
  • Is at the start of a transformational journey where collaboration between sector partners is core business?
  • Yalues and invests in YOU?

If this sounds like you why not come and see what UHMBT has to offer.

We are a multi-disciplinary team who would welcome you to join us. As well as being the country’s 7th most inclusive employer, worklife balance is made easier with our location; right next door to the beautiful Lake District, where you can enjoy outdoor recreational activities, as well as being close to the bustling city of Manchester.

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.

Not only does this provide improved ways of working within the multi-disciplinary context, it enables you to be involved in the exciting journey ahead for providing transformational care within Morecambe Bay.

The Langdale Unit is a step up step down unit based on the Westmorland General site.

The wards accept step up patients from the GP’s locally via the Urgent Treatment Centre, and step down patients from RLI and FGH wards.

The unit works closely with the Integrated Care Communities, Local GP’s, Adult social care and hospital discharge teams.

The service supports people with a wide variety of conditions including elderly care, frailty and falls, orthopaedics and long term condition management including palliative care for residents of south lakes . We facilitate a rehabilitation programme to enable patients to return home as soon as possible.

Working together to deliver care to patients you will need to:

  • have experience of working as a trained nurse within the NHS with a desire to develop your clinical skills further
  • demonstrate and evidence your own professional development
  • demonstrate your ability to work independently when necessary
  • have a friendly and flexible attitude, which is patient focused and dedicated to quality care
  • use your expertise to supervise and teach nursing students and other staff within the service

What will we offer you?

  • A supportive team environment which values the input of the team
  • A structured two-way appraisal process to support your ongoing development
  • In-house recognition schemes
  • A focus on employee involvement where your contribution is valued
  • Encouragement for your professional development
  • A relocation package for prospective applicants living more than 60 miles away
  • Opportunity to be part of our transformational programme of combining acute and community services
  • Excellent location of our sites near the Lake District to support a healthy worklife balance

Anyone newly appointed to the trust will be subject to the completion of a satisfactory 6 month probationary period (this includes bank staff). This will give the new staff member an opportunity to become familiar with the role and working environment.

Applicant requirements

You must have appropriate UK professional registration.

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the resident labour market test. UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UKVI website. From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement. Guidance can be found here Criminal Records Checks for Overseas Applicants.

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.
