Are you an experienced ward sister/charge nurse or a staff nurse looking for a new challenge? An exciting opportunity has arisen for motivated registered nurses to join our teams across the medicine care group.  

The medicine care group delivers a diverse range of specialist services and we are currently offering development opportunities in;

  • Respiratory medicine
  • Gastroenterology
  • Hepatology

We are very proud of the outstanding care that we provide our patients and we are looking for a likeminded individual with a strong focus on patient care, proven leadership skills and the ability to work inter-professionally across boundaries.

We are a friendly team with a highly supportive working environment and our strong links with the university provide staff with excellent opportunities for ongoing education and professional development.

If you’re looking for a great opportunity to develop your management and leadership skills within an acute environment then we would like to hear from you. Informal enquiries are welcomed using the contact details below.

University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust (UHS) is one of England's largest acute teaching trusts. We've recently been rated ‘Good’ by the CQC and in the latest national NHS Staff Survey we ranked seventh in the country for staff engagement, and fourth best nationally for our proportion of staff saying that they would recommend the hospital as a place to work or to receive care. One of our main objectives has been to become a top ten research trust, with the pharmacy department being an integral part of achieving this.

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.
