Make a big difference to patient care   


Are you passionate about how digital can make a difference? 


We’re looking for full-stack application developers with experience of ASP.Net, C#, CSS, HTML5 and enterprise databases.  We are looking to appoint at band 7, dependent on skills and experience, but we’d also welcome applications from candidates who do not quite meet the grade requirement, but who would, after gaining specified competencies, be suitable for the role. 




The UHSFT Digital Programme Team are delivering key components of the Trust’s Digital Strategy including the Global Digital Exemplar Programme. They work closely with colleagues to introduce new technology and systems to the organisation. They engage with the chief clinical informatics officers and the chief nursing informatics and other clinical champions to ensure that projects are clinically led and focused on delivering benefits for staff and patients.  

The My Medical Record programme is a leading patient online service that exists to support patients in managing their own healthcare whilst away from the hospital. The service supports clinicians and patients at fourteen hospitals around the country and our work programme is rapidly expanding. As such, we are growing our existing team to support this programme. 


The majority of your time will be spent developing and supporting new or existing modules within My Medical Record to meet new patient, clinician and business requirements. The work is typically extremely varied and each task can utilise the complete range of development tools and techniques from purely “front end” user interface styling to “back end” work with data interfaces and the underlying architecture of the platform. You will be required to work with a wide range of stakeholders, mostly within the My Medical Record team but also across the organisation.


We’re looking for experienced full-stack application developers who can enhance our existing systems, and develop new solutions to meet the needs of the Trust and our partner organisations.  Significant experience of ASP.Net, C#, CSS, and HTML5, is essential, as well as practical experience of enterprise databases. Awareness of HL7, FHIR, APIs, JSON/XML would be advantageous. 

Applicants must be self-motivated, with an ability to adapt their skills to our development environment. We operate complex data storage architectures with multiple interfaces and therefore significant knowledge transfer will be required, so the right candidate will also be a quick learner.  The post requires strong collaboration and teamwork including with non-technical staff so the successful candidate will also be someone who can work well within a team. 

Please read the attached person specifications and job descriptions which detail the skills and experience that you’ll need to demonstrate for the band 7 role. 

If you do not meet all the grade requirements but can demonstrate many of them, we will consider appointing at a training grade with a view to you gaining specific competencies, undertaking training or building experience which would then make you eligible for the advertised position. 


As one of the largest acute teaching Trust’s in England, we can offer learning and development opportunities to help you achieve the career you aspire to. We believe you deserve the best possible surroundings in which to do your job and we want to support you in doing your job to the best of your ability.

As a Trust, we support flexible working and will consider requests taking into account the needs of the service. You’ll have an opportunity to discuss this at interview. Our LiveWell and inspire programme offers opportunities, support and advice, including smoking cessation services, exercise and activity classes, and support for mental health.

UHS employees are able to access a huge range of NHS discounts, are entitled to a minimum of 35 days paid holiday (pro rata) on appointment, can access on-site nursery facilities (subject to availability), and we offer a generous pension scheme.


UHS is rated ‘Good’ by the CQC and in the latest national NHS Staff Survey, we were in the top 10 acute trusts for staff engagement and for staff recommending the hospital as a place to work or receive care. 

Southampton is an attractive place to live and work situated on the south coast, with an international airport and only an hour on the train from central London. The New Forest National Park and the beaches of the Jurassic coast are also right on our doorstep. The city offers living costs 20% lower than those in London, 13 schools rated outstanding by Ofsted and 13 nearby green spaces to enjoy.


We anticipate interviews being held on or around the week commencing Tuesday, 02 February 2021.
