Nurse / midwife recruitment evening – Wednesday 17 May 4-7pm

We will be holding a recruitment evening for registered nurses and midwives looking for a new challenge, or student nurses/midwives looking to start their career.

The event will take place on Wednesday 17 May between 4-7pm at the Education Centre next to Sunderland Royal Hospital. There will be the opportunity to talk to clinical staff from across the Trust as well as general information about roles available and how we support and develop our nursing and midwifery teams.

Why City Hospitals Sunderland?

We aim to be the first choice for patients locally, regionally and in some cases nationally. To achieve this we need to ensure that our team is the very best in the healthcare industry.

We are committed to making sure that our nursing and midwifery teams are able to develop to their full potential and are able to progress their careers here with us.

We are already engaging with local universities to start working with student nurses before they graduate. This gives them a seamless transition into working for the Trust and the confidence to immediately make their mark. As part of this, we were one of the first trusts to offer a Preceptorship programme. Newly qualified nurses and midwives are teamed up with experienced colleagues who can guide and mentor them through their initial months at the Trust.

We are continually investing in patient care and facilities. Our brand new Emergency Department opens this month and will be a new concept in providing emergency care. We are developing a new diagnostic and treatment centre in Durham that will open in Spring 2018 and will specialise in renal and urology services. Our Eye Infirmary is renowned across the country and we have recently upgraded specialist areas such as our Integrated Critical Care and Endscopy Unit and of course the Bariatric Patient Unit, which was recently featured on the television documentary “Weight Loss Ward”.

We are a research and innovation centre, which means that we are always looking at how we can improve patient care and embrace new technologies to provide an NHS for the future.
