The Barts Health group of NHS hospitals is entering an exciting new era on our improvement journey to becoming an outstanding organisation with a world-class clinical reputation. Having lifted ourselves out of special measures, we now have the impetus and breathing space to chart a fresh course in which we are continually striving to improve all our services for patients.

Our vision is to be a high-performing group of NHS hospitals, renowned for excellence and innovation, and providing safe and compassionate care to our patients in east London and beyond. That means being a provider of excellent patient safety, known for delivering consistently high standards of harm-free care and always caring for patients in the right place at the right time. It also means being an outstanding place to work, in which our WeCare values and behaviours are visible to all and guide us in how we work together.

Whipps Cross University Hospital is part of the Barts Health group of hospitals renowned for excellence and innovation and providing safe and compassionate care  that serves an area that is rich in diversity, providing services to a broad and diverse multicultural community for people living in East London and beyond.

We are looking for enthusiastic staff nurses to join our busy critical care units. You will need to be a registered nurse with six months experience and an interest in critical care nursing.

You will have an opportunity to rotate internally between HDU and ICU in order to develop a full range of skills and be supported with in house training and a mentorship programme

With excellent transport links Whipps Cross University Hospital provides a full range of modern acute medicine for various specialist services with a strong focus and a rewarding environment with excellent training, development and support enabling our staff to meet the high standards of healthcare.  Our commitment and regard for our patients are reflected in our vision and WeCare values which are at the heart of everything we do.

As part of our critical care commitment to enhance the working lives of our staff, we offer flexible working arrangements, childcare vouchers, family-friendly policies and staff benefits including an excellent pension scheme. We are committed to providing a culture of continuous learning, which actively supports your professional development. Whipps Cross is a friendly, welcoming and supportive place to work with many staff benefits provided on site from the Tomswood Health and Wellbeing Centre which offers Zumba and Pilates, to name but a few of the options, to the varied on site catering arrangements which provide a broad range of healthy options. Staff well-being is a priority for Whipps Cross

With an up and coming redevelopment which will incorporate a  new state of the art sustainable hospital that will improve core NHS services for patient care the future is bright for Whipps Cross.  Come and be part of our Whipps Cross family as you shape your story with Barts Health.
