Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT) is one of the largest acute Trusts in the UK, employing over 28,000 staff.

We are responsible for running a family of ten hospitals across seven separate sites, providing a wide range of services from comprehensive local general hospital care through to highly specialised regional and national services.

You will be supported through regular clinical supervision, individual learning plans, on-going education and access to a rapidly expanding team of ACP’s to provide mentorship and support.

This truly is an exciting time to join North Manchester General Hospital. A once-in-a-generation opportunity will see our hospital rebuilt and the creation of a health village within our grounds. This creates a rare opportunity to become involved with these changes and part of the new future of the site.

You’ll thrive in our open, inclusive and collaborative environment where everyone matters, and is respected for who they are. We will help you to develop and support you to deliver your very best work.
