Join our team!

On 1 July, we’ll be hosting a Virtual Recruitment Event, where you can find out more about our team and facilities, and ask any questions you might have, without leaving your house! You’ll gain insights into the different departments that we run, the team that you could become a part of and the opportunities available for you.

We’ll be hiring for nursing staff in the following areas:

Urgent Care:

Tameside and Glossop's Urgent Care facility was created to support our busy Emergency Care department. The department cares for patients with a wide range of conditions, and the team works closely with other teams including A&E, Surgery and X-Ray.

Adult Medicine:

Our Adult Medicine department is far-reaching, giving our nursing staff the opportunity to experience a range of conditions and specialties. From Neurology to the Intensive Care Unit, Dermatology to Cardiology, and many more in between, it's the perfect place to work if you want a varied and challenging caseload.

Stamford Unit:

The Stamford Unit is within the Tameside hospital site. It offers single room en-suite accommodation with good public transport links, parking facilities and is easily accessible for patients and relatives.

It is the Tameside and Glossop community bed base offering rehabilitation in preparation for discharge out into the community. It receives its referrals predominantly from the Acute Trust and is currently undergoing an exciting transformation project.


This involves developing one floor into a therapy led floor which has a multi-disciplinary team approach and in-reach from other specialities within the integrated organisation. Another floor is being developed into an admissions unit with palliative care beds.

Our focus is to:

  • Offer rehabilitation
  • Encourage independence and an individualised treatment plan whilst recovering from illness, surgery or a fall.
  • Provide services to support your rehabilitation which includes therapists, gym, therapy kitchen and therapy led sessions to support movement and strength.
  • Utilise a multi-disciplinary team approach working with social services, medical colleagues and therapists to ensure a safe patient discharge to the patient's home of choice.

Return to practice nurses

Are you wanting to return to practice and are not sure what this means why not come and talk to us at our recruitment event on 1 July?

Return to practice

The return to practice programme is a combination of classroom and placement-based learning. The hours you spend on placement will vary and be negotiated with you, depending how long you have been off the NMC register.

The whole programme can take three to twelve months to complete. The university you choose will be able to provide further information.

Throughout the programme you will develop a portfolio that demonstrates your skils. The portfolio will be sent to the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) to record the completion of your return to practice programme and your re-registration.

If you want to find out more why not come and talk to us?

If you would like to work in other clinical areas i.e. A&E please contact us and we will forward your details on to the relevant department.
