We are one of the busiest university teaching hospital trusts in North West England. We manage three hospitals based on two sites: the Royal Liverpool University Hospital, Liverpool University Dental Hospital and Broadgreen Hospital.  Our hospitals have often been at the forefront of medical breakthroughs during our long history at the heart of the city.

In under a year we will be opening a new state of the art hospital. The new hospital will provide every patient with a single bedroom with en-suite facilities. We believe that modern healthcare is as much about privacy, comfort and dignity as it is about pioneering treatments and cutting-edge technology. Please look at our digital pack for videos and further information: Recruitment Info 



Ward 4A Spinal Unit Band 5

The Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospital Trust is the largest hospital in Merseyside and Cheshire. Located close to the City Centre, the hospital provides emergency, general and specialist treatment to patients from across the North West, North wales and the Isle of Man.

It currently has more than 700 beds and has the Main emergency department for the city of Liverpool, the largest of its kind in the country with the ability to treat complex trauma as well as minor injuries.

We have built on the historical excellence and innovation that brought Liverpool to the forefront of the medical world. We have achieved this by continuing to provide innovation in education, rehabilitation, surgical techniques and implant developments. We continue to maintain a reputation for excellence that is recognised throughout the world.

There are vacancies for Band 5 Registered Nurses on our orthopaedic spinal ward. Ward 4A is a 23 bedded spinal unit. You will be working in partnership with a large team of specialist experts to ensure our patients receive high quality of care.

The successful candidate will be dedicated and proactive in ensuring high quality, evidence based care. You will be an individual who demonstrates excellent communication, organisational and interpersonal skills.

We can offer you an individualised preceptorship programme to support you in your induction to working within our unit. This will include a week long clinical preceptorship course for those new to the Trust. There will be opportunities for professional development depending upon individual needs.

Informal visits are welcome and encouraged and we look forward to hearing from you.
