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

University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay has been nationally recognised as the UK’s most inclusive NHS organisation. As such we have a firm commitment to strengthening the diversity of our workforce, and therefore welcome and encourage applications from likeminded people who can support our ambition to become effortlessly inclusive. We are particularly keen to hear from protected groups – including BAME, LGBT+ and people with a disability.

Due to new innovative and improved ways of working to provide seamless and integrated care between services in our locality the Rapid Response Team in North Lancashire are seeking to recruit  Band 5 nurses 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.  Our Morecambe Bay Respiratory Network has just received significant investment in further supporting a collaborative approach to providing respiratory services across the Bay. Our aim is to provide Pulmonary Rehabilitation and Rapid Response services within a community location, rather than the traditional acute environment, which supports our service users with care closer to home.  These newly-established ways of working will require a degree of flexibility as well creative thinking to establish and form new pathways of care.

We are looking for motivated, committed and innovative nurses 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. As well as being the country’s 7th most inclusive employer, work-life 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.

If this sounds like an opportunity you don’t want to miss and 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
  • values and invests in YOU

then why not come and see what UHMBT has to offer? In return we will 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 work life 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.
