Nursing

Nurses are vital to the work we do here at our hospitals. They are key in contributing to the health and wellbeing of our patients.

At the centre of what we do is the aim to give patients with heart and lung diseases the best possible care. We do this by helping our staff realise their potential.

Our vision is to be the UK's leading specialist centre for heart and lung disease. This gives the opportunity to work with some of the world leaders in cardiorespiratory medicine and care. We understand the significance in creating an environment of excellence, so we strongly promote continuing education and professional development.

Working at our hospitals

We have over 800 nurses working at our two main sites; Royal Brompton Hospital in Chelsea, London and Harefield Hospital in Middlesex. At both sites, there are a mixture of adult and paediatric patients and a range of clinical services that we offer.

When you begin working here, you can focus on working with adult or paediatric patients and develop your specialist knowledge.

There is an above average number of nurse specialist roles, for those interested in specialising in:

  • acute and chronic heart and lung disease

  • critical care

  • transplantation
