Do you want to work for one of the UK’s largest Trusts, situated in the heart of the “Garden of England”, just a stone’s throw from London and with easy, fast access to France and beyond?
We currently have both full-time and part-time opportunities within our Medical Wards at The Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother Hospital in Margate, Kent.
We are looking for people who have some previous experience of working in the specialty, but we also encourage applications from newly qualified nurses or those from other health care environments and will support and develop you to reach your full potential as a highly skilled and experienced nurse.
We will provide you with a structured Preceptorship programme, a range of rotational opportunities to enable development of skills across patient pathways, and access to development opportunities with our excellent links with the University of Kent.
We aim to provide safe and effective care that exceeds the expectations of our patients and the public and we are looking for excellent nurses who embrace our Trust values and care so that:
- People feel cared for as individuals
- People feel safe, reassured and involved
- People feel that we are making a difference
Staff and patients from across East Kent Hospitals are the feature of the biggest NHS recruitment drive in its 70 year history.
Filmed in William Harvey and Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother hospitals, the ‘We are the NHS’ campaign highlights the extraordinary work that staff across EKHUFT do every single day. As one of the largest hospital trusts in England, with five hospitals and community clinics serving a population of over one million people, EKHUFT was perfectly placed to demonstrate the care, cutting-edge treatments, research, innovations and life-saving operations that the campaign needed.
There are lots of great opportunities at East Kent Hospitals, where staff are caring and put patients first, innovation flourishes and you can develop your career. A medical school will be opening in east Kent in 2020 with 100 training places a year. To find out more about east Kent visit our website at. The Trust fully supports the SAS Doctors Charter and is committed to their development through its CPD Framework.
