The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital is a busy, rewarding environment, with a strong team focus. We can offer our nurses a career based on a mix of variety with outstanding learning and development opportunities. We offer a high level of support in the department for new starters, along with a structured induction which will help to develop your skills and teach you the knowledge you will need to succeed.

The Emergency Department

There is already a strong core of both substantive and long-term locum members in our ED team, as well as middle-grade doctors, specialist nurses, enhanced clinicians and dedicated support staff. One of the ways we are improving employee experience, staff involvement, and engagement, is by recruiting according to our Trust values, behaviours and attitudes - we are looking for people who can provide the safest and kindest care in the NHS.

Our Hospitals

Our hospitals are based in Shropshire and just 20 minutes’ drive apart. Shropshire is a wonderful place to live and few people would disagree. Shrewsbury, in particular, has recently been named as one of the top places to live in the country in the “Sunday Time Best Places to Live Guide”. It is a wonderful bustling place, with affordable housing, fantastic schools and great out-of-work activities for everyone.

It is also a particularly good time to join the Trust as we are currently working in collaboration with the Virginia Mason Institute in Seattle. We are one of only 5 UK trusts to receive this support from one of the safest hospitals in the world. We are 3 years into a 5-year journey -  gain this valuable experience whilst you still can.

Shropshire

Shropshire is a beautiful county located between the West Midlands and North Wales. Whilst rural and home to the Shropshire Hills it is anything but sleepy. The county is bustling with idyllic towns including Shrewsbury, Oswestry, Bridgnorth and Ludlow, with plenty to do regardless of your interests. More information can again be found under further links.

We are ideally located between the north and the south making travelling around the UK extremely easy. As well as being only a short distance from major cities and busy transport links including Birmingham airport, our county also borders with beautiful north Wales which is abundant in outdoor activities, brilliant beaches, and thrilling scenery.
