Milton Keynes University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, in partnership with the University of Buckingham, is a University Teaching Hospital; we conduct research and teaching on site to improve the care of our patients . The hospital is undergoing significant  investment and development including a new surgical ward, a new main entrance (allowing expansion of A&E services),  a new Academic Centre and a planned new Cancer Centre.

Milton Keynes is the fastest growing and most successful city in the country (visit http://www.destinationmiltonkeynes.co.uk/) for which we provide Emergency Medicine (including Paediatrics) from minor injury to major trauma, Critical Care, Cancer Services, General Surgery & Medicine, Women’s & Children Services (including Maternity, Paediatrics & Neonatal) and Renal Services.

The Health Service Journal recently named Milton Keynes one of the top performing NHS Trust to work in and we are proud to be rated “good” by the Care Quality Commission.

 You can expect a warm welcome, our staff are friendly and welcoming. We listen to each other and work together to embed our Trusts values and behaviors


Ward 16 is a Female Respiratory/medical ward.

The ward has a four-bedded Non Invasive Ventilation bay within their 29-bed footprint.

Ward 16 offers a friendly dynamic working environment with lots of opportunities to learn and develop your leadership/respiratory nursing skills.

If you are, an experienced Band 5 registered nurse who has the passion and drive to develop your leadership/managerial skills we would love to hear from you.

The hospital has links to local universities who offer a wide range of education, for example, New Bucks University is currently providing a bespoke degree module on Respiratory care.
We offer long days/earlies/lates /night shifts and you will be expected to follow internal rotation. We also aim to be as flexible as possible.

Ideally, we seek nurses who have experience in caring for patients with respiratory conditions but will consider experienced nurses who demonstrate an interest in this field and a willingness to develop/learn and be part of a team.

We welcome informal visits to the ward areas. If you would be interested in visiting the ward, please contact either of the ward managers to arrange.
