Working for Southport and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust offers all the benefits of coast and country living with the convenience of big city life.

We have miles of unspoilt coastline on our doorstep, attractive commuter towns, picturesque villages and stunning countryside all within easy reach. Excellent transport links mean the vibrant, historic city of Liverpool is only a short journey away. Shops, bars, restaurants, museums, galleries, a World Heritage listed waterfront and, of course, two Premiership football teams makes this a destination for travellers from across the world.

The University of Liverpool has awarded us the status of University Clinical Education Centre in recognition of the high standard of training provided for students on placement to the Trust.

We pride ourselves in providing safe, clean and friendly care, and recruit to our SCOPE values. We also offer a range of family friendly options to staff.

Please note that all successful applicants to non-medical positions will be subject to a six-month probationary period.

The Government have announced their intention to introduce the need for mandatory COVID vaccinations for frontline patient facing roles (and those staff working in patient areas). This will come into effect from 1st April 2022. This role may be in scope and as such if you are appointed it is likely that your COVID vaccination status (or proof of any exemption) will form part of your pre-employment checks.
