There are lots of good reasons to choose to come and work at Stockport NHS Foundation Trust. A dynamic integrated Trust with integrity and vision. Exactly the same qualities you’ll see in yourself. Stockport NHS Foundation Trust aims to be the organisation of choice for patients and an employer of choice for staff. In order to continually improve all aspects of our patient experience, we rely upon having a highly skilled, motivated, diverse, productive and patient focused workforce.

Stockport Foundation Trust is one of four ‘specialist’ hospital sites in Greater Manchester. Being a ‘specialist’ hospital will enhance our general surgery, anaesthetics, critical care and emergency medicine for the benefit of people in Stockport, High Peak, Cheshire and across Greater Manchester.

Our values ‘Quality and Safety, Communication, Service’ are at the heart of everything we do and come from our ‘Your Health. Our Priority’ promise. Every day they drive the behaviour and actions for every person in our organisation.

Our coaching academy is a vehicle for developing a coaching culture throughout the Trust to help develop, engage, motivate and care for our staff to deliver better patient care. It will support us to consistently have a “culture of caring” which both our staff and patients will experience.

Our Values:

Quality and Safety

We deliver safe, high quality and compassionate care.

We ensure a clean and safe environment for better care


We treat our patients, their families and our staff with dignity and respect.

We communicate with everyone in a clear and open way.


We provide effective, efficient and innovative care.

We work in partnership with others, to deliver improved care, in the right place at the right time. 


We are looking for an enthusiastic, highly motivated and innovative individual with experience of safeguarding and child protection, to join our dynamic and forward thinking Safeguarding Children Team here at Stockport NHS Foundation trust.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced Practitioner with safeguarding and child protection experience to join the Team.

The safeguarding team is part of Stockport NHS Foundation Trust which provides services for both the acute and community business groups and is committed to delivering high quality safeguarding supervision, advice/ support and training to staff trust wide.

We therefore welcome applications from individuals who have a sound knowledge of Safeguarding/Child Protection and experience in delivering safeguarding children supervision.

The post-holder will work closely with the Named Nurse and Named Doctor, to deliver the safeguarding children, young people and domestic abuse agenda across the organisation. To provide specialist advice, support, supervision and training to Trust staff, to enable them to work confidently and safely with children and families. To work in partnership with other health service providers and other agencies, both statutory and voluntary, to promote children’s welfare and keep them safe from harm.

This post will play a key role in ensuring that the Trust meets the requirements to safeguard and promote the welfare of children, under Section 11 of the Children Act, (2004) and Working Together to Safeguard Children (2018).

The role of the Safeguarding Nurse Specialist includes strategic work locally relating to the Stockport Safeguarding Children Partnership (SSCP) and integrated working with key partners. Commitment to interagency and partnership working is demonstrated by supporting Stockport’s Safeguarding Children Board training provision as well as in house training delivery for front line practitioners.

The post will be based between the Community Vulnerable Children’s Team based at Central House as part of the Stockport Family Integrated team and the Treehouse Children’s Unit to ensure there is service delivery trust wide across the organisation.
