If you have applied for a post please ensure you check your e-mails and NHS Jobs account regularly. Any correspondence may be by e-mail only.

The opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic and motivated Band 5 Staff Nurse to join the vascular surgical team at Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.


We believe this is an extraordinarily exciting time to join a team embarking on an innovative transformation and implementation of a shared single vascular service across West Yorkshire. This should give the opportunities to actively be involved in the change programme, contribute to pathways of care, and introduce new ways of working and technologies, with the ultimate aim of delivering outstanding care to our population.


We believe this change will allow for future research, education, rotation, and working differently experiencing a wider range of Nursing opportunities.


Ward 26 is currently a busy 28 bedded mixed sex vascular surgical unit, supporting patients with complex vascular conditions. It has a multidisciplinary focus and works alongside the teams in Leg Ulcer Clinic and outpatients.


Through the West Yorkshire Association of Acute Trusts (WYAAT) the below five Trusts have agreed an ambitious programme to create a shared single vascular service to provide safe, effective, patient focused, outstanding care across West Yorkshire in the form of the West Yorkshire Vascular Service (WYVaS). This dynamic and ambitious move will make us one of the largest vascular services in the country covering 2.4m people and include the services currently provided by:


Airedale NHS Foundation Trust (ANHSFT)

Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (BTHFT)

Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust (CHFT)

Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust (LTHT)

Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust (MYHT)


Applicants do not need previous experience but will be required to help the service to further develop and deliver a high quality service as well as provide compassionate and individual care. The appointee will work alongside a strong, cohesive, and well established team. Our work to develop a true single service is testament to our commitment to this innovative change, development of new ways of working, and the strength of relationships.



A structured preceptorship period of training and development will be provided with the support of a preceptor.

The post holder will be responsible for assessment of care needs, the implementation and evaluation of care of vascular patients, including working closely with the multidisciplinary team involved in their care.
