Nursing and midwifery

Nurses and midwives make up the largest part of our workforce and our hospitals have been at the forefront of the development of these roles for generations.

We are immensely proud of our nursing history but our focus is also how we grow in the future.

Nurses and midwives are at the heart of multi-professional teams across the Trust, and we offer unparalleled opportunities for career progression and development at the leading edge of healthcare.

We've recently refreshed our nursing and midwifery strategy to build on our existing strengths. Our priorities are:

  • outstanding patient care
  • recognition
  • wellbeing
  • inclusion
  • professional development
  • leadership

We will empower our 9,000-strong team of nurses and midwives to lead and deliver outstanding care to all who use our services.

Join us and be part of a diverse and committed team where:

  • you'll be proud to deliver the best possible care in partnership with patients, carers and families
  • our nursing leaders are determined that every nurse and midwife, whatever their background, receives the support they need to fulfil their potential, whether clinical or academic
  • you'll be valued and supported by an organisation that cares deeply about your health and wellbeing
  • you'll be encouraged to lead and take part in pioneering research that improves patient care and influences national practice
