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.


We are looking to recruit Band 5 RN’s to our EAU/ACU team.

We are a 24hr fast moving and challenging unit, caring for predominantly medical and emergency admissions. We also accept admissions from other specialties including general surgery, orthopedics and urology.
Within our department we have two areas, both of which are designed to meet the needs of acute admissions/referrals.

- 22 inpatient assessment beds, where patients are assessed by the relevant team and a decision is made to either admit to a specialty ward or discharge home.
-6 assessment trolleys within the Ambulatory Care Unit. This is a recently redesigned service within a newly refurbished area on our unit. This unit is rapidly expanding and offers a range of treatments and services.

Our main source of patient is A&E, outpatient clinics and other health care professionals, directly onto our unit. The aim of the unit is to provide initial assessment and treatment of patients, with timely transfer to specialist wards or discharge.

We have an innovative team incorporating, 5 acute care physicians, two consultant nurses and an experienced nursing team. With the support of an excellent multi- disciplinary team including staff from pharmacy, critical care outreach, specialist nurses and therapy staff to name but a few. The team works together to provide a safe and supportive environment to ensure patients receive the highest standard of care.

We are looking for band 5 RN’s who are committed, motivated, and ready for challenge within a busy yet supportive environment. Experience within an urgent care environment would be an advantage but is not essential. We are a physically and sometimes emotionally demanding place to work, but the job is equally rewarding. There is an excellent work ethic within the team and support from team members will always be available.
If you are interested in finding out more about the job, please feel free to contact us and we would be delighted to arrange any informal visits.
