Nuffield Health is Britain’s largest not-for-profit healthcare organisation. Join us as a Theatre Practitioner - Orthopaedic Scrub in our North Staffordshire Hospital and play your part in building a healthier nation.

We value expertise at Nuffield Health. It’s our combination of expert knowledge, innovative thinking and passion for care that has enabled us to become Britain’s largest not for profit healthcare provider. It has also helped us to build a unique network delivering connected healthcare - from hospitals, to Fitness and Wellbeing Clubs, to specialist services including physiotherapy. Across our network, brilliant people benefit from our commitment to invest every penny in our services and people. With more time and greater scope to do what you love, the specialist in you will thrive here.

About our Nuffield Health North Staffordshire Hospital

The hospital is modern, purpose-built and well-equipped with 40 en-suite bedrooms. There are 2 operating theatres and 1 minor/endoscopy suite, a busy outpatient department and physiotherapy, pathology and diagnostic imaging. It has an excellent reputation for clinical care, expertise and efficient friendly staff. Free onsite car parking is available for our staff.

The Role

We’re looking for an exceptional Theatre Nurse or Practitioner with drive, passion and high standards. You might join us from the NHS or a private setting. Either way, you’ll discover unrivalled scope to work autonomously, make full use of your skills and knowledge and add value. This is nursing as it should be. You’ll be able to grow your career and be free of the constraints that prevent you from achieving job satisfaction. We know you thrive on the pressure and intensity of theatre work. So you’ll work closely with leading consultants and other like-minded professionals, who will respect and value what you bring to the close-knit multidisciplinary team. You’ll enjoy opportunities to work on a varied caseload using technology, equipment and facilities which are state-of-the-art. As well as supervising, supporting and developing junior staff, you’ll deliver high quality care and experiences for patients, which is always clinically effective, evidence based and appropriate.

The Person

As a registered Theatre Nurse or Operating Department Practitioner, you’ll have the qualifications and experience relevant to your registration, including NMC or HCPC. You’ll have post-registration experience, be an excellent communicator and team worker – flexible and motivated. As part of the wider hospital team you’ll interact with colleagues on the ward because you understand that continuity in patient care is key. Like us, you’re driven by quality. You don’t like to make compromises and we won’t ask you to. We’ll make sure you have everything you need to do a job you’re proud of.

Ideally you will need to be an experienced Theatre Practitioner – Orthopaedic, however full training and support will be given to newly qualified practitioners. You must be able to demonstrate good communication skills and work closely with all members of the multi-disciplinary team and meet the person specification.

The Benefits

We want you to be the best you can be. So we promise to support you with training, career development and our unique health and wellbeing focused benefits package. This includes free membership of your local Fitness and Wellbeing Club, physiotherapy services and an annual health assessment, as well as a range of lifestyle and financial wellbeing benefits. Along with a competitive salary package you will also be paid enhancements for shift/unsociable hours worked and on call.

Be your best and join us in building a healthier nation.
