We’re the third best hospital in England for the four-hour wait standard (and one of only eight to meet the standard in 2018/19); we’re the only stroke service in the South West to be awarded an A rating from the Stroke Sentinel National Audit Programme (SSNAP); we’re one of the country’s best performing Trusts for research and development; we’re the only hospital in the country to have zero nurse vacancies; and we’re leading the way with our innovative, celebrated multi-agency partnership to improve patient flow and reduce lengths of stay.
We’re also the best Trust in England for staff health and well-being (NHS staff survey 2018/19).
If you’d like to work for a Trust where you can make a mark and where ingenuity, innovation and individualism are celebrated, please explore these pages to find out about current vacancies. Alternatively, get in contact to discuss what you can do for our patients, and what we can do for your career.

Would you like the flexibility of working hours that fit in with your personal circumstances?
We are currently looking to recruit Registered Nurses with exceptional professional skills, a passion for high quality patient care and a keen focus on positive patient experience to join our nurse bank. You will be required to assess, plan and deliver a high standard of nursing care while responding to individual needs. You will demonstrate good clinical practice at all times, promote a good working ethos, and maintain a safe environment for patients and staff.
You too can make a difference and play your part in delivering NHS England’s five year plan. You can work for one of only 29 Vanguard hospitals. You can be proud to work in an award winning nursing team and you can feel secure knowing the hospital you work for recently received £4.9M to support phase one of its new models of care plan.
We’re radically redesigning how we provide care. We’re embracing technology to improve our services and patient safety. We’re implementing Electronic Health Records and we think big, we are helping to define the future of healthcare in the UK.
Patient safety and experience is also important to us. We won the Nursing Times Patient Safety Award 2014 and were finalists in the Nursing Standard Enhancing the Patient Experience 2015. We also value our staff and have repeatedly been rated as one of the Top 10 healthcare employers in the country.
If you feel you could make a difference in our organisation and want to be part of our friendly and enthusiastic nursing teams, we would like to hear from you. Please use the additional information section of the application form to indicate your preferred area of choice.
