What opportunities are available at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals?
There are a wide range of flexible and temporary roles across the trust’s centres for both nurses and healthcare assistants (HCAs). Medacs can help place HCAs and Band 5 Registered General Nurses (RGNs) into long-term block bookings where you could be working a mixture of day, night and weekend shifts. There are generally placements available in the following roles:
- Band 5 Registered Nurses (general)
- Band 5 A&E Nurses
- Band 5 ITU/ICU Nurses
- Band 5 Theatre Nurses/Operating Department Practitioners (ODPs)
- Band 5 Nurses – Paediatrics
If you are an HCA, you will need at least six months of NHS experience to be eligible for these roles, as you will be working at Band 3 level. These bands reflect your seniority and therefore determine your salary, which will vary.
The trust offers a number of additional rewards and benefits to its agency nurses and you can also look forward to having your efforts recognised through monthly reward schemes, where you could win incentives such as shopping vouchers.
To ensure that all agency nurses are confident using IT systems, the trust provides two hours of computer training for new starters to make sure you’re comfortable accessing administrative tools. With Medacs, this training is paid, so you won’t be affected financially when it comes to getting your skills ready in preparation for your new role.
