Bolton NHS Foundation Trust was formed in 2008 and, in 2011, we became an integrated provider with community health services joining the trust. Covering a catchment area that also incorporates parts of Bury, Wigan and Salford, we deliver hospital and community based services from the Royal Bolton Hospital in Farnworth and from 20 health centres across Bolton, to a catchment population of 320,000 people. We have a CQC rating as good overall and we have some key areas of outstanding practice with an outstanding rating for being well led at every level.

Buildings, names and models of care have changed over the centuries, but one thing has remained constant and is prevalent among our 5,900+ staff members: the enduring commitment to providing the best health and care for the people of Bolton.


Bolton NHS Foundation Trust is an integrated provider of acute, intermediate and community health care serving the population of Bolton. This provides us with an opportunity for our services to work closely with our partners in primary care and the local authority to ensure a seamless service for our patients.

Here at Bolton our patients are at the heart of everything we do. We ensure our patients receive the highest quality of Care and are guided by our trust Values. We are proud that our Trust is a centre of excellence for maternity, neonatal and care for children, and that it has been rated as Good by the Quality Care Commission (CQC). This is in recognition of the patient experience and quality of care that our staff provide to patients. It is also supported by our Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health Professional Framework for Professional Practice.

The Family Care Division aims to deliver the highest standards of care in maternity, sexual health, gynaecology and a range of acute and community children’s services. We deliver over 6,000 babies and carry around 1,500 gynaecological procedures each year. The Trust also has a tertiary level Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, enabling 1 in 4 women across Greater Manchester to receive in-utero transfer and birth at extreme premature gestation at Bolton.

The Children’s Community Nurse will provide support, evidenced-based care and advocacy for children with a wide range of conditions such as acute and long term and life limiting conditions. Children and families will be cared for within the home and various other ambulatory care settings such as nurse led clinics, children’s centres and schools. The role is integral to the wider generic Children’s Community Nursing Team (CCNT).


The post holder may be required to rotate into the acute Trust and to work within the different teams within the CCNT to maintain/further develop knowledge and skills that promote ‘Care Closer to Home’. This will enable staff to have the required elements to care for the children of Bolton with acute, long term and continuing care conditions.

The post holder will be required to act in a manner consistent with the NMC Code of Professional Conduct, carrying out their duties in accordance with Trust policies and procedures.

The aims of this Trust are to improve the health of and provide the best possible care to the population in which we serve and ensure that our staff have joy and pride in their work.
