Why work for us?

Our staff are among the most likely in the NHS to recommend the trust they work for, both for its clinical care and as an employer. 

The Trust received 4.22 from a possible 5 in a recent NHS staff survey question which asked staff if they would recommend their workplace. 

This figure is among the highest of all trusts in the NHS. The national average for acute trusts is 3.76.

And besides that, the national NHS staff survey showed that staff said they would recommend Royal Brompton or Harefield Hospital to their own friends and family if they needed treatment.

In other words, the staff who work here love it and they believe in what they do.  

Our nursing teams strive to give patients and everyone we support the best quality of care and treatment. Our nurses are expected to uphold the essentials of nursing care:

  • competence
  • care
  • compassion
  • commitment
  • communication
  • courage.

Clinical and professional development

The Trust actively supports the professional and clinical development of its nursing staff by offering a wide range of in-house learning opportunities. 

We run study day programmes and ward-based teaching sessions – practice educators are pivotal in supporting both experienced and less-experienced nurses. 

We also support our nursing staff to continue their professional development through studying post-registration courses at higher education institutions across London, including: 

  • Kings College London
  • Bucks New University
  • London South Bank 
  • Kingston University.  

In addition, we also offer long course funding to support our nurses in obtaining BSc and MSc qualifications.


There are different types of accommodation available for nurses at the Trust. 

When you join us, we are able to offer six months’ accommodation to help you settle into your new job. 

After this, we can provide support to help you find alternative accommodation.
