Working for us

You may be interested in a career in the health service. We offer many opportunities, including training, and are always happy to supply information regarding professional qualifications, vocational training, job vacancies and work placements.

It takes a multi-disciplinary team to deliver an effective health service. Doctors, nurses, therapists and scientists cannot do this on their own. There are over 70 careers in the NHS. Not all jobs need formal qualifications. If you are keen to advance and to learn, there will be opportunities to get professional qualifications or take up vocational training.
