COVID-19 Vacancy Patient Services Supervisor

Band 3

At East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust our vision is to be widely recognised for providing safe, personal and effective care.  We currently provide high quality services and treat over 600,000 people across East Lancashire and the surrounding area. We employ over 8,000 staff, many of whom are internationally renowned and have won awards for their work.

Your regular duties will involve supervising your team to deliver safe, personal and effective care in a clean and pleasant environment. You will support them by recruiting, training, monitoring and auditing across our hospitals, while your team carry out cleaning and patient transfer activities every day of the year.

This is a vital role, based at Royal Blackburn Teaching Hospital where we currently require another zone Supervisor to cover evening shifts:

  • Post one thirty hours  per week – Thursday to Sunday - 14:00-22:00

What about our ideal candidate? You will be reliable, honest and personally committed to ensuring every patient receives the best possible service. While experience in a supervisory, cleaning or portering role would be valued, you will receive a thorough induction and training package. You should be a good communicator with an excellent eye for detail, and demand high standards of yourself and your colleagues in this challenging and rewarding role.


Dear Potential Applicant,

It is important you are made aware of the changes which East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust has implemented with regard to charging for the cost of undertaking Disclosure and Barring Scheme (DBS) Checks (previously known as Criminal Records Bureau or CRB) and how this may impact upon you.

As this position is exempted from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and involves work that is identified as a regulated activity as defined in the Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Act (2006), any offer of employment is provisional upon a satisfactory DBS check being obtained.

The cost of an Enhanced Disclosure will be £44.00, which includes a small handling fee.

In line with other NHS organisations in the North West Region, the Trust is now passing the charge for undertaking a DBS check on to candidates in the event they are successfully appointed into the post for which they have applied.  Candidates can choose whether to pay this over 1-3 months as a deduction from the monthly salary.  By applying for this vacancy you are agreeing to this undertaking in the event you are successfully appointed.
