This is an exciting opportunity to join Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, one of the largest Trusts in the North West, as we are expanding our clinical services, and are redeveloping both of our hospitals.

We are the region's provider of cancer, neurosciences, mobility and rehabilitation, renal, and burns and plastics tertiary specialties. In the past two years we have been accredited as the major Trauma Centre, for Lancashire and South Cumbria, as well as the regional Vascular Centre. We are in the process transferring specialist cancer surgery to our Cancer Centre, and are expanding ENT Oncology, Urology, Colorectal and Upper Gastrointestinal Surgery.

Our staff are our greatest asset and we believe that supporting our workforce to grow, develop and innovate creates a great place to work, and enables us to provide excellent care with compassion for our patients.

We provide a wide range of leadership, clinical development and post registration programs to support staff to reach their full potential, and have some of the best learning facilities in the country.

As a Centre for Health Innovation and Research our staff have lots of opportunities to participate in clinical trials and studies, and as a teaching hospital you can get involved in delivering education programs for student doctors, nurses and allied health professionals.

We are looking for highly motivated, enthusiastic staff with excellent communication skills to join our already established teams but also to lead and develop new services and ways of working as our Oncology teams grasp this opportunity to influence, shape and develop the changing face of cancer care and service provision at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals.

Interviews will be held 9th October 2017
